    IM NOT YELLING lol . what you asking if my computer performance slows down ? if so nope . the problem is when you open like google chrome and have 4 tabs open with videos when you open another web page it just crashes chrome and my whole desktop (screen turns black then the whole screen pops back up ) and also get error message saying i run out of memory :(
    right now my control panel is as follows:
    Physical Memory (MB)
    Total : 957
    Cached : 125
    Available : 202
    Free: 83

    Kernel Memory
    Paged: 145
    Non :56
    Processes :56
    Physical Memory : 79 %

    Well you are really low on ram and it seems like your OS has not only increased your Vram but reserved additional as well, so two things either add ram or reduce vram again.

    thanks bro 1 yea i realize 1 gig isnt enough , i'm gonna add 2 more gigs of ram . by the way if i add a radeon 5750 with 1 gig ram ,is the 1 gig ram gonna 'steal' usable ram from the ram sticks ? just like how vram is subtracted from the ram ?
