Another Insiron 5000 question

Discussion in 'Dell' started by Master Thrasher, Jan 18, 2004.

  1. Since this group has been so good to me I have another question

    I have 192MB of SDRAM. I know I can put into it up to 512MB of Ram but if I
    buy 512 MB of RAM it looks like it will cost at least $200. So will it
    increase the performance of the machine in order to make it worth $200?

    I'm keeping till I go off to college in August.

    Probably not, but then it depends on what apps you are running.
    Photo/video editing, very large doc editing, etc, can all benefit from
    more memory. If u haven't already done so, I would put the $ toward a
    huge external hd for backups, or get an 80GB internal hd like I just
    did for ~$190 from newegg, or if u don't already have one get the
    modular cd/rw or dvd drive.

  3. I have a 40GB external hard drive and I am preparing to reformat to increase
    system performance.

    I have 300+ MB of Ram apparently. I thought it was 192 but oh well.
