    Got a dell insiprion (something or other) and i have had enough! 256 ram just ain't enough for CS2 and other applications. can anyone suggest how much RAM i should up it to? what would be decent enough to handle the kind of applications that we handle?

    i'm based in glasgow so i'm also wondering if anyone could direct us to where to buy it, and should i get it installed manually. never done it before but think i could handle it..... unless someone here tell me different.

    any tips or suggestions?

    Good grief. 256 is just enough to run XP, add SP2 and you are just asking for trouble. I would aim for 1-2 GB.

    Go here and input your computer type, etc, and it will tell you what type you need, and you can order from there as well (I think).

    between 512MB and 1GB would make you run a lot faster

    1 GB, minimum.

    RAM is very easy to install yourself; don't throw away money to have somebody else do it.
