I said to myself when I got my computer last year that I wasn't going to do any upgrading to the machine. I guess I lied to myself, because I just did today.
My computer came with 512MB of RAM, and I thought this would be plenty for what I wanted to use my computer for. I finally got tired of programs crashing on me (particularly Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Movie Maker). So several days ago, I ordered a new RAM chip online from Kingston. I replaced one of the 256MB chips with my new 1GB chip. So now I'm at 1.25GB. That should be plenty for what I use my computer for. We'll see I guess.
