So you think you need more RAM?

I think the odds are that you don't! More RAM seems to be the common argument for solving all that's wrong in PC land. Lightroom slow? Add RAM until your piggy bank is empty and it will still be slow! Why? Because Lightroom is slow! How about me putting some proof behind my claim:

I say that 4GB, a very common amount of RAM, is enough.  I qualify that by adding that 8GB is better, but only because it allows you to run a RAM drive which can indeed speed up Lightroom. So before you run out and buy more RAM, check out the link above.  You might be better off buying a Class 10 SD card, or supper for the family at McDonald's.

All comments here are my opinion of course.  Yours may be different.
