RAM or something else?

Hello,
I'm just wondering what would help increase the speed of some things I do.

Mainly, when I'm playing games and I have a free second to look on my other monitor, it takes ~3-5 seconds before I can actually do anything on the other monitor, then another 3-5 seconds to go back. Would RAM be the thing to fix that, or would it be another part of my computer? I currently have only 3GB.

Sorry, I know this is in the wrong place, I couldn't find an option for this in the drop down options.

However, I am once again just asking if RAM is what would make the lag be cut down when I go from and to my game screen.

It is possible the ram is causing some of it but then again your CPU is not very fast if you are multitasking.
