Ok, I have upgraded my processor from the 3800+ to a 5400+, the video card to a ATI 4670 all with excellent results. Now I am wondering if upgrading my memory modules will help improve performance. Currently I have the stock, 4 gig of ram installed from DELL.

I really have no clue here what to look for as far as compatibility, or even if "better" memory is available and\or would It really make a difference?

input, links, anything would be great.
thanks,

For almost anyone 4gb of RAM is plenty. If you are doing a lot of video editing or normaly work with large files more may be nice.

4gigs is plenty for gaming and general tasks.

It won't give you much of a performance boost.

Appreciate the reply. I do a lot of Photoshop work and have recently been doing some video editing which, by the way, isn't going very well, very clunky and slow.

Think I will stick with images and forget the video side of things right now :-).

Again, I appreciate your time here thanks again,
