Don't make fun of me.... question about max ram Tags: Memory RAM Computers Last response: October 20, 2009 12:01 PM in Memory Share JTBALLER October 20, 2009 1:52:19 AM Quick and simple here... So if the maximum amount of ram that windows recognizes is 4 GB, then what is the point of having more? Some computers are sold with 8 and 10 and more... but if you are only going to use 4 GB at one time, what is the point of having the extra ram?

Windows places a limit of 128 GB. With normal (and even abnormal use) you'd currently never need that much memory | Report abuse JTBALLER October 20, 2009 5:02:08 AM so you mean to tell me that if i were to have 16 gb in my desktop it wouldn't be a waste! WOW! that's cool then... I just never could figure it out | Report abuse arges86 October 20, 2009 5:07:24 AM i'm not sure you'd use 16 gb of RAM... unless your doing intensive HD video editing... or something like that | Report abuse GhislainG Memory Master October 20, 2009 12:01:59 PM JTBALLER said:so you mean to tell me that if i were to have 16 gb in my desktop it wouldn't be a waste!
