RAM Facts

Currently RAM is measured in megabytes and gigabytes. A typical computer system will have from 256MB to 4MB installed. The general rule of thumb is that the more memory you have installed the faster the system will be.

Most modern computer systems have the capacity for more RAM to be added up to a maximum. The maximum allowed and the particular type and specification of the RAM will be found in the manual for the motherboard.
