With new programs pushing memory requirements to fresh heights, there has never been a better time to maximize your RAM. We had a look at how memory vendors assist you in finding the right modules
Fascism is alive and well at TG Forums, I see.little godamn noobs like yourself should shut up and go away.
Don't you think timings deserve a mention... even a passing one? Even PC133 came in CL2 and CL3 flavors. Isn't it a bad thing to buy slow memory to add to fast memory? Shouldn't people be aware of that? Shouldn't people understand why they are being charged more for memory with tighter timings? Shouldn't there be a mention as to what timings you really need? Isn't this all a significant part of "Navigating the Memory Upgrade Jungle"?whilst alot of enthusiasts use this site the writers do not write articles solely for them. timings are only important for people who want maximum performance. a person looking to upgrade a dimension 4600 which i believe was the featured comp is not going to be gaming so will not need high performance ram. this was an upgrade we're talking about. people may be upgrading an old comp so the history was important.
once again you completely miss the point of the article.
I understand how this artcle fails to live up to its billing. It should have been called something else, like perhaps "Let Memory Vendors Help You Choose Your Upgrades". If I saw that as a title I wouldn't have bothered reading it and I wouldn't be here critiquing it. Yes, upgrading memory can be a jungle, but this artcile may still leave you stranded.perhaps, but again you don't seem to understand the memory and its specifications come secondary in this article to how the vendors help you find ram not what ram they help you find.
Can somebody help me understand what is meant by "standard kit"? Does that mean pre-assembled whole units from say Dell or HP, or do optimized self-build computer kits exist? I've only seen ArsTechnica's System Guide's which suggest a set of components to purchase for the later. Can anyone recommend kits that are sold as a whole?Though maximizing memory on new system builds is as easy as choosing a standard kit
