Web Design and Development
If you are a web developer or graphic designer, you probably have tons of resource intensive programs such as Photoshop, Flash, and Dreamweaver, as well as a host of other applications in the Adobe Creative Suite. And perhaps, you also like to listen to Pandora or iTunes when you are working on a project.
Unfortunately, most computers cannot handle these programs when used all at once. Why? Most computers do not have sufficient memory.
Fortunately, adding more memory to your system is a fairly simple task. And if you know where to go, it is also relatively inexpensive.
The first option that I would suggest for finding additional memory modules for your computer would be your computer’s manufacturer. However, sometimes they have limited offerings and/or may be expensive.
The second option is to find another company or website that can provide compatible memory modules for your computer. One such company that we recommend is Memory Suppliers. Memory Suppliers stocks memory upgrade modules for a wide variety of computer brands such as Dell, Toshiba, Apple, and IBM. Even better, their prices are competitive, they have a great return policy, and they offer free shipping. And if you’re willing to do a bit of hunting around the web, it is likely that you can find a promotional discount code.
Many people are afraid of adding additional components to their computer if it requires anything more than plugging in a cord. And while installing memory is a bit more complicated, it is a simple process.
To do it correctly, we recommend finding the owner’s manual for your computer, or following the instructions that come with the memory module. But the process is usually as simple as opening the size of your computer and sliding the memory modules into their respective slots.
1. Too Much Memory
While it is usually beneficial to add memory to a system, too much memory can be a bad thing. In fact, if you add more memory than recommended, it can result in poor performance. So it is necessary to do your research to determine the limitations of what your computer can handle.
2. Wrong Processor Speed
It is also important to buy memory with the appropriate processor speed. For best results, attempt to purchase memory upgrades with the same processing speeds as currently installed in your system. However, if you are replacing your preexisting memory modules, it may be possible to introduce memory modules with a greater processor speed.
As always, consult your computer manual for system specific information.Tags: hardware, memory, software
