Sometimes I wish my desktop could go higher than 4 GB of RAM, but that's as high as it can go, and it was stock with 4 GB of RAM as well.

    My desktop has 2 GB of RAM that's over seven years old. It's DDR2 memory, since DDR3 wasn't even out yet. :3 It runs Linux Mint <3 I love it so much.

      No, my desktop/media server's name is ODIN and will always be ODIN. It is the King.

      I would agree with others about sticking a linux distribution on it. It should run Ubuntu or Mint just fine.
      Yeah, Ubuntu runs nicely, although it can't multitask too terribly well on this computer in its current form. :\ A bit more ram would be nice to fix those random freezes. If I do upgrade it, though, I plan to update my Vista partition upgraded to Windows 7 as well.

      The 1GB it currently has is decent, but yeah. An upgrade is definitely needed in the short-term future, that is, if I want to keep my sanity.

      Ironically enough, this was linked on an IRC channel I frequent on a relatively similar topic.

      I think I'm okay with my 6 GB of RAM tbh. xD I mean, I can play good games with it and multitask well, but I do like more because I'm a nerd like that. ;D

      If I still had my HP laptop I would have done that in a heartbeat. It had 1 GB RAM.

      I dread the day where 8 GB isn't enough for everyday multimedia computing.

        LMAO. I have that same exact thought in the back of my head the other day. Back then, 512 MB of ram was more than enough, but now we can't do most programs or games with 1 or 2 GB RAM. In the near future, we'll be suffering with just 8 GB of ram. xD

        I wish I was at work. I would post a screen shot of one of our Hyper-V hosts, it has 72 GB of RAM.

        Wow, what kind of work on a computer would require that much RAM?! O_o

          It is a Virtual Machine Host, we have three of them. As you can see, the bottleneck is storage.


          Is anybody else here work in the I.T. field?

          Now we have absurd amounts of video RAM in our GPUs.

          Seriously, they're practically their own little computers - and a lot of that part is actually true these days.

          OMG I know right. Have you seen the specs on the Nvida Telsa K40?

          12GB of GDDR5 at 384-bit bus width with a clock cycle of 3.0GHz. And that is just the RAM. That beast has 2880 CUDA cores with a peak throughput of 4.29 Tflops!

          Granted it costs 1/4 of my car, but d***!!

            Hold me, I think I'm in love with that server. ♥ I'd love to work in the IT field but getting certifications is proving difficult for me. :(

            Heh? Well, at least you could practically throw everything at it.

            On another topic, I hope the Nokia Lumia 930 is out by my next birthday, because that's what I'm getting. If not, well... gotta think about what would be the closest phone to that.
