Solved What can we do with free ram? Tags: Performance RAM Components Last response: May 11, 2010 2:23 AM in Components Share julienlarivee May 4, 2010 1:47:40 PM Hi I actually got 8go of ram but I only use 3-4go maximum. I was wondering if there is a way to boost performance of anything with the ram left? For exemple can I use the ram left to boost performance of the CPU or the GPU?

So windows will use it for cache automatically? I dont have to set it somewhere? Thanks for your fast reply | Report abuse mindless728 May 4, 2010 2:46:46 PM yup, though it will take quite a few programs to load up 4GB of cache | Report abuse julienlarivee May 4, 2010 2:55:58 PM hehe Thanks | Report abuse julienlarivee May 11, 2010 2:23:50 AM Best answer selected by julienlarivee. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>What can we do with free ram?> Related ressources: ForumHow much RAM , memory, hard drive, and how fast a processor do we need ForumWhat we were talking about 11 years ago!
