    Why would they allow a computer to upgrade to more RAM than it can actually use?

    That's an excellent question. I blame Bill Gates.

    No, it's the OS, not the computer. If you get Windows XP x64, you can use a shitload of RAM: 128gb, 32-bit Vista systems go up to 4gb, and 64-bit Vista systems go up to 16gb.

    EDIT: I'm fairly sure of those numbers, check MS.com to be absolute.

    My friend just built a computer that's utilizing EIGHT OH GOD GIGABYTES OF RAM. On a Dual-Quad Core. D:

    That thing is going to be fucking speedy.

    All for the best though - he's a Visual Effects major...needs to render a crapload on a regular basis.


    Speaking of...I really need to upgrade my RAM. I've only got 1GB. I multitask the hell out of this thing, I reeeeally need that extra gig, at least. :(

    Mine used to be speedy and make the interwebs jealous but now its old and rickety and its 1GB ram just can't keep it all together sometimes. I kinda need to just tough this one out though because for the Graphic Design program we're required to get Macbook Pro's so dropping a large amount on this computer now wouldn't be good when I need to get a new one next summer anyhow.

    Only if you have the 32-bit version. If you have the 64-bit version of Vista Ultimate then you can install 128GB of memory.

    On a network and maybe for heavy simulations, I dunno.

    By the way, 64-bit Vista can use that but not all at once. In fact, I think it can only manage about 4gb-8gb well. That was in some article. Again, take this cum grano salis, though I doubt anyone here is going to install more than 4gb.

    Probably if you were running RMS. Or if you happened to be an ESX server. I'd kill for a few ESX hosts with that much memory and some dual quad core processors

    Are computers getting to a stage where the power to usefulness ratio is... diminishing? I actually don't know what practical difference I'm going to get between a quad and dual core whatsit. Don't programs need to be written to take advantage of extra cores? Is this ... happening? (I feel so stupid asking these questions I am reluctant to press the Post Reply button oh well here goes)

    Dual core is like having 2 processors in one and Quad core is like having 4. So 2x and 4x the processing power, respectively. This is why my 2.0ghz Core 2 Duo (dual core) will kick the Pentium III 3.0ghz (single core)'s ass. Cuz mine is more like having 4ghz.

    That is a horrible, horrible simplification, but you get the general idea.

    I got a new job over the weekend. :D I start as a line cook in two hours at a local bar/restaurant. Yay for no more AV technician work!

    On a side note, I'm also being considered for a world building position in Vegas.

    AGH! Man, this sucks. They offered me less than what I'm making now. I tell ya, had it been a totally diffrent industry, where I could get a lot of learning experience, I would have taken it for less money... but it's the same pharmacy, medical thing I'm doing now... except I'll be working more and I wont leave the office at 4:30.

    Oh well, next time Gadget. Next time.
