Giving Your PC A Speed Boost

Adding Computer RAM is widely accepted to be the cheapest and quickest way to give your PC a speed boost. It’s also a component which many people find they need to upgrade quickly, or replace (because they ‘burn out’). Naman had to replace his RAM recently, for example. The thing is, today’s processors have reached such speed levels that they can handle pretty much all applications without users having to face slow speeds. The processors are fast enough to handle all that, but the biggest bottleneck that most users and companies face is their computer’s memory – or RAM. RAM is the ‘place’ where all currently running applications on your system are stored, and THIS is where people face slow speeds. On a typical setup, a person would have lots of Windows services for stuff like networking and audio et al running in the background. Plus, the mandatory anti-virus software and firewall. After all this, a user generally has hardly any memory left to run multiple applications (like a browser, an office suite, a media player etc) all at the same time.

That said, it’s not easy to find good quality and cost-effective RAM in the open market. Major brands charge an arm and a leg for it, but upgrading RAM is still a cheap way of staving of that computer upgrade for a few years. Adding 512 MB / 1 GB of DDR PC2700 Memory to your system will future-proof you and make your computer experience better for at least 1.5-2 years. For small businesses who don’t have big IT budgets, this is the best way to ensure a good level of performance, without breaking the bank.

Memory Deal is a new online memory products provider, whose focus is to provide quality RAM which compare up to the same level as that of Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). Using the same kind of RAM is very important, as I myself learned the hard way last year. I’d gone ahead and bought an extra DDR2 400 MHz RAM for my PC, while it actually needed 300 MHz (I’d lost the spec sheet and the sticker on the old RAM). One of them went kaput because of that mismatch. With dedicated providers like Memory Deal who ensure that the customer gets EXACTLY the same quality and type of RAM needed for their system, you can rest assured. That means, when you Add IMAC Memory to your iMac, you can rest assured that you’ll get a product which matches up to the same standards as the OEM.
