Locating System Memory, or RAM, for upgrading the Windows operating system used to be an intimidating process even for computer geeks. Thankfully, tools and system memory configurators have come a long way over the past five to ten years. Now, anyone can go to a memory configurator website and locate the exact specifications of their system memory within a minute or two. This video shows users exactly how to use one of the best memory configurators on the web today.
After using this configurator, users can find out all of the information about their system memory they need to go shopping for upgrades. Many individuals have preferences for certain vendors when it comes to purchasing RAM. Some are more comfortable walking into the store to purchase it, others are more comfortable purchasing online. In either case, with the information provided from the configurator, the user can go to whichever vendor he chooses to purchase memory.
Of course, The PCMichiana Tech Help Show recommends using Newegg.com for all of their hardware purchasing needs. Newegg.com has been around for years and has an amazing track record for shipping time, reliability and trustworthiness. Be careful which online vendors you choose to purchase from, you may save a few dollars on your memory, but a huge chunk of memory in the online market is actually forged.
