    Well I started out with 256Mb of RAM and it worked. Put another 256Mb and it was four times faster. So with three slots I put a third 256Mb in for good measure and in case one module failed.

    So I have 3 x 256Mb modules of PC 133 SDRAM which cost me 3 x $38

    All in all $114

    Now if you work that out in terms of beer or cigarettes, it's pretty cheap.

    It means that I can run with 14 different applications open.

    Internet Explorer is roughly 10 times faster.
