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!

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