Win7 with 2gb or 4gb

hi all, I have two seperate questions:

1. i have windows 7 installed with 2gb of memory. if i add another 2gb giving me a total of 4gb, will i notice a difference in speed?

2. do they make 2GB DDR 400 memory modules? i've only ever seen 1gb modules.

  1. Hi

    1- You can see a little increase on some games and applications, also, when your PC boot.

    2- Yes, exist but are too expensive.
  2. 1. is it worth spending $100 canadian on an extra 2gb of memory?
  3. $100???, with this price you can buy an AMD X4 processor.
  4. well i have a socket 939 motherboard and I'm not going to do build another machine. so you're saying the speed increase that i'd get from going from 2gb of ram to 4gb in windows 7 is not worth $100can?
  5. No, what sain is saying is it's not worth $100 to upgrade a dead platform. Save the money and do a new build in a few months.
  6. i just bought a house, i need to buy air conditioning, blinds for all my windows, a fence, TV, dining room furniture, etc. i'm not upgrading my PC for another 4 years probably. so should i spend $100 on another 2gb of ram?

    not for ddr 400 maybe 30-50 dollars. i got a 4 gig chip kit of mushkin ram ddr2 1066 for 110 dollars
  8. DDR is more expensive that DDR2 and maybe DDR3 'cause is too old, and today only few rigs keeps this ram on use.

    ahh i missed that it didnt state ddr"2" nm that old stuff is getting expensive. its like trying to by brand new sd ram. better off going to see a computer repair guy and see if hes got some old piles of ram laying aroud use.
