RAM (Memory) Buying Guide (New)

At RamCity we've been supplying high quality memory and storage upgrades since 2003. Over that time we've built up a large amount of knowledge to help answer all of your questions about buying the right memory upgrade, and it's all here in our Memory Buying Guide.


Will a Memory (RAM) Upgrade speed up my computer?

Here are some typical signs which indicate your computer could benefit from a memory upgrade:

  • Applications running slowly and being unresponsive, especially when switching from one application to another.
  • Parts of the display on your screen appearing to be missing
  • On-screen messages explicitly refer to a lack of memory
  • Activity Monitor utility (mac) or Task Manager (windows) shows a lack of free system memory

We also have a more comprehensive list of symptoms that a memory upgrade could help and a video tutorial to help determine if you need more RAM in your PC or Mac.

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, then a memory upgrade is likely to help improve performance. The RamCity Upgrade Finder™ at the bottom of this page can help you locate a 100% compatible upgrade.
