Memory upgrade 1GB to 2GB, worth it?
Feb 10, 2006

Hi,

Is it worth it? I'm running Athlon 64 3200+ @ 2.2GHz right now with 2x512MB of Corsair Value Select. Fast most of the time but when I have more document opened, it seems render a little slower (GPU = EVGA 6600 128MB).

There's a promotion at local shop that I could get similar memory for about $90 (Corsair Twinx PC3200 512MB x 2).

So, would I notice anything going from 1GB to 2GB? Most of the apps I use is Nikon Capture and Photoshop CS (occationally, do video editing but so less).

Any comment is appreciated.
John
