How Much Memory is enough 2019 – 2021?
It depends on what you use your computer for? Web browsing, photo editing, gaming..?
Random Access memory is volatile memory, which means that it doesn’t store data permanently. The speeds of RAM is much faster than hard drives or solid state drives. When you launch a program, the data is first loaded from the hard drive to the RAM, then it can be quickly accessed by the CPU.
Many people think adding more RAM always increase performance. More RAM does’t necessarily make your PC faster e.g. If your’re system has 8GB RAM installed and is only using 4GB then you obviously wont see any difference buying 16 Gigabytes of memory.
To see how much memory your PC is using Press Ctrl + Shift + Esc to open Task Manager and click on the Performance tab.
In the screenshot below I had multiple Chrome tabs open, Windows Media Player and Photoshop and was using 3.1 GB RAM
