It seems thats there is a lot of confusion out there, about RAM and how it affects the speed of your PC.
If a computer starts feeling slow, there could be many reasons for it.
Suprisingly, many people don’t know how to check and see if RAM is the cause of the slowdown.
Others believe that the more RAM you add to a computer, the faster it will go. This is not so… if your PC normally uses, say, 600Mb RAM while you use it, then increasing RAM from 1000Mb to 2000Mb will have no effect on the speed.
In order to let anyone know if their computer needs more RAM, Computer Aid now has a new freeware utility called Hym. You can download HYM from here
Just download it to someplace like your desktop, run it, and you will get a “yes / no / maybe” answer to the question of “do you need more RAM?“.
If you run a wide variety of programs, then you can minimize HYM to the task tray, and keep an eye on your RAM usage as you work/play.
