|Thanks for the recommendation, guys. Considering thatmy local computer supply store wanted $220 for two 8 GB sticks of generic RAM, (>_<) Crucial seems to be the best bet.|
@JohnR, Their site said 16GB max. So that's what I'm going to get.
@Peet100, That's not a problem; it more of a matter of how the program works. It preloads the file in front of the player marker but it's not so good at clearing it out,and I tend to get a 1gb partition of comatose memory that I have to manually clear using the program's 'Clear Cache' function. I've talked to their tech support about this, they said (in bad English) It will be addressed in the next update. But that's most likely not going to happen, since the program's already 1.5 years old and their new version is out.
@DellMan, 8GB was the maximum that I could order the computer with. That doesn't mean that I can't put 16 in. Like I said, when the warranty expires and I feel comfortable taking off the cover, I'll try to grab some mobo numbers and do a lookup.
@riider, PF is all handled by Windows. Even if I did want to change it, I don't think I could find it in windows 8. and I'm using McAfee, which I discovered uses almost 400MB of RAM just idling, when you combine all the different processes it comprises. :-O Its the fault of the real-time protection scanner... Anyway, I still have a license for a year, but by that time I can stick the extra RAM in and who cares?
It's not like i'm trying to micromanage every KB of my precious 512MB in my Pentium 4...
