Memory enough for now ! ?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello to all! My machine has 4 gb ram and i am using a vertex 2 ocz ssd drive 60 gb! i wonder if its enough memory for todays needs ? i am thinking to upgrade to 8 gigs but ddr2 are more expensive than ddr3 ! and windows 7 using at least 1 gb when idle when running only avast on background why do they use too much usage on idle can i optimise it to run fewer services on background ? also when i am running games like crysis 2 or GTA i am seeing my memory going to 70% usage 2.8 gb usage . And another one question i have set the Page file from 1 gb minimum to maximux 2 gb it is advisable to leave windows to decide ? or u think with an ssd i need small size PF?

I really wouldn't bother until you upgrade your architecture as well.

Basically when you get a new CPU and motherboard then get new memory. I removed my page file completely with no issues.

I really wouldn't bother with putting in more memory, for gaming that'll be more than enough.

Save and maybe put some cash towards a new GPU since you other one broke.

I've been using it since 2003 :-p

But either way, I didn't check and nor could I be bothered to check. It was just a passing comment to help you out biggrin.gif
