Computer Basics | What is RAM Memory?

how much ram do you need?

more RAM doesn't really mean a better performance, in fact you may need less RAM than you think, virtual memory is a file on your hard disc that serves as temporary storage when your PC'S real memory is full, so the storage on your RAM isn't all of the storage in your PC. When your RAM gets full you can always add more.

why is RAM so important?

when the computer runs a programme all of that data that's is on that programme gets loaded onto the RAM for the programme to properly function. Many users will operate multiple programs at once, such as a Web browser, an email program, and a word processing program. Each of this programs will take up part of the computer's memory. The more RAM a computer has, the more efficiently the programs can run.
