Question about Insignia D400a PC Desktop
Want to increase memory on my PC which opinion is best my PC is older has windows 7 with 32bit. have increased from 512MB to 2GB now memory is full. Question can the motherbroad handle another increase of 4GB? Or add external hard drive be better?
The motherboard can only take 2 GB of memory. If you tried a larger memory stick in any slot, the motherboard will fail to recognize it. A larger hard drive or an external drive will only increase storage and page file capacity. This will not improve the performance of the computer. Memory caching to the hard drive is limited to the bus speed of the hard drive interface (much slower than the RAM).
The better option if you can offered it is a new computer, if you do any gaming. You are dealing with a 2.8 GHz CPU with a 400 MHz bus. The computer is probably fine for e-mail but video and gaming response will not improve.
I wish that I had better news for you.
(who replaced her Pentium 4 system that took 4 GB of DDR memory a few months ago. Too many other parts were failing.)
