Probably a dumb RAM question...

    But I was just reading up on my computer, and I was aware I have 1GB of RAM, but then additional specs say...

    "The 1 GB of installed RAM (PC3200) is a good start for this multimedia-centric desktop PC, but you'll want to take advantage of the ultra-roomy 4 GB of total RAM capacity (4 x 1 GB) for such multimedia needs as video editing and immersive 3D gaming."

    I was just wondering if that means I'd have to buy additional RAM or it's already in my computer somehow, and there's a way to access it? And yes, I know nothing about computers. :(

    EDIT: this is also the computer I have http://www.amazon.com/Pavilion-Dual-Core-Processor-LightScribe-SuperMulti/dp/B000E1D9BW

    yes you need to buy more, and take notice that if your running of a 32bit version of vista or xp your computer can only use 3gigs....

    Soo if your 32 bit buy 2 gigs + ur one

    If your 64 bit..... put in as much as you can!

    Here go to www.crucial.com

    pick your exact model and they will tell you what stuff you can get

    If you're running XP and doing mostly web-browsing and checking youre email - 1GB is enough.
