    I Seem To Be Having An Issue With Not Enough Ram???, I Still Show Only 5 Out Of 8g Ram Being Used, I Am An Avid Photographer, And It Seems Like Ram Is The Issue?, However A Few People Have Suggested Other Video Programs Might Be Conflicting. Does the Dell Inspiron With 8 g Ram Have A Few More Slots To Upgrade To Like 12g Ram?, If So Are They Still Making Ram For This Series, Thanks

    Your ram value is probably correct, ~2GB is being used for graphics and other hardware uses some too.

    What symptoms make you think there's something wrong ?

    You appear to have a Dell Inspiron 660 or a Dell Vostro 270 desktop. What's the exact 7-character "service tag/serial" number on yours?

    Yours appears to have an Intel Core i3-3240 processor and an Intel HD Graphics 2500 integrated graphic device and is maxed out with 8 GB of DDR3 RAM.

    Have you considered adding a low-power dedicated graphic card to replace the weak integrated graphic device?
