When it comes to system memory or Random Access Memory (RAM) you can never have too much RAM in your computer. As my parents taught me at a young age, “It is always good to have it and never need it, then to need it and not have it.” As our needs increase on the use of more sophisticated computer programs, and the use of using multiple programs to do our daily multitasking computing needs; the need to have a lot of RAM installed on our computers has become a necessity.
