Is this right???

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
OK, I've got 512 ram in my comp. I ran a performance test on it and it says: 511 Total Physical Memory
247 Available Physical Memory

Should it be that low???

It all depends on what you have running.
That sounds like a normal amount for a semi-configured system/non-configured.

Stop all the services, startup programs you dont need.

Just don't stop any service you're not certain about. In case of doubt keep it as it already is otherwise your operating system might start to behave abnormally.
Also use common sense when deciding what to stop... I mean if for example a guide tells you to stop the "Print Spooler" service and you know you are going to be using that printer then simply discard the advice.

Here's a great website that should help you decide on a process when/if you feel it's uselessly hogging system resources.

Good luck and feel free to ask if you have additional questions that pop up along the way.

RAM overclocking is actually a byproduct of processor overclocking to put it simply.

Technically you could set your computer where your processor it at stock speeds but your ram is overclocked but we don't need to go there.
