Another gig of RAM was the best idea I've ever had

going from 1 gig to 2 is a very, very noticable difference (i guess it makes sense since i doubled it).

i totally recommend it to those thinking about it... RAM prices are very cheap

and to the computer illiterate, upgrading RAM is easier than making cereal... its a great starter upgrade.

You still running Vista? If so there is no doubt you will notice a difference as Vista is a Memory hog

vista is designed to use as much ram as possible at any given time to improve overall system performance

or so my stepdad (xps guy at dell, and general IT whiz) says

It is but it still uses a ton more memory than XP (not caching, actual using the memory). Especially if you have Aero on.
