How do you know it’s time for an upgrade?

How do you know it's time for an upgrade?

Upgrading a computer's memory is the most cost-effective and simple way of giving it a performance boost. But how do you know when to upgrade? Computers with more RAM can work more efficiently as more information can be stored in the physical memory, where retrieval speeds are in the nanoseconds; they don't need to delve into hard disk drive as often, where it can take milliseconds or even longer to access information. The most obvious and specific way to check up on a computer's RAM memory is to view the performance settings of the computer, usually found in Windows' Control Panel or Mac's System Preferences. Of course, if the counter is hovering low, more RAM is needed to give the computer memory a boost.

Other tell-tale signs of a computer in need of a memory upgrade are if it takes much longer than usual to carry out simple processes, or if the computer or laptop runs much more slowly when more windows are open. Graphics may become slower or fragmented, especially if the user is accessing a game with complicated scenery or multiple characters. The hard disk drive may become audible as it works to carry out tasks it used to do within milliseconds. Once physical memory runs out, the computer will start to store memory in the hard drive and the strain of constantly accessing this information can cause computers to freeze or crash; if the computer is continuously loaded with data it can't handle, it could one day fail to start up at all.
