No. It's not an issue of ram. It's an issue related to processor speed, hard drive speed, transfer rates, all the rest of that good stuff.RAM-PAGE said:Unless you have sufficient RAM of course.
The KEY though, is that all of these apps do NOT need to be running in the background in the first place.
Installing more ram, to allow unnecessary applications to run is a waste of time. The next step after this would be, that all of these background apps start to consume so much cpu/disk bandwidth that you need to upgrade your disk subsystem or processor.
Needless waste of money!
