    The average new computer will come w/ 128 - 256 MB of RAM now. More and more are coming w/ 512mb (usually the baller models), and many "enthusiasts" are going past 1gb.

    64mb was cool a couple of years ago...na mean na mean

    On a side note:
    The few Sony computers I've opened that had 512mb or RAM actually had a single 512mb stick as opposed to two 256mb sticks (Like the HP's and Compaqs I've seen). Playa made...

    deleting shit from your hard drive will free up 'storage' space from your hard drive which kids usually think is 'memory'

    Hard drive = storage (how much shit u can hold on yoru computer at once)

    Ram = memory (how much shit you can store in temporary memry at once, aka how much info can be put into a spot where the computer can access it MUCH faster than from the hard drive0

    CPU = speed your computer can process all of this information

    and yes...64mb of ram is dick......i dont even think u can put xp on a 64mb machine...lol

    im workin with almost 512...does the trick

    but im about to cop a 1gig DDR

    HOLLA~

    the more stuff on your hard drive, the longer your computer may have to search for some files, so yes if you have a lot of shit on ya hard drive it may use more memory.

    also, you can defrag the hard drive and get a bit more memory back.

    jesus christ bro...if all u got is 64mb of ram then I know the rest of your computer's old too.......get a new one...even gettin new ram probably won't help, how much harddrive space do you have and what kind and freq is your processor

    the cpu is your processor, a lot of kats think it's another name for a computer....it's not... cpu=processor

    actually defragging your computer will NOT give you more meory..it will make the retreival time faster on your har drive..thats it....

    and cpu = central processing unit...to be technical...lol
