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?
