    Hi,

    Should I add another 256mb onto my current 768mb pc3200 ram?
    I only surf web, office apps etc and dont play games.

    Is it worth it and would I be able to notice a difference?

    cheers

    I wouldnt have thought so unless you like to have 10 things going at once and its starting to stall.

    Load up task manager and see what your peak commit charge is. If its more than 768meg then you would benefit from more memory.

    Personally I wouldn't bother since even if you do get the odd bit of paging, it won't matter much as you don't pay games.

    It says:

    Limit 1528560
    Peak 559872

    Bottom of Task manager Ive got:

    Commit Charge: 404M / 1492M
