Hmmm. Now I can see why BG wanted to contact you earlier!!!!

Now what Ram did you want to upgrade to?

Your RAM's speed wont change over time, it's likely that your computer "feels" slower because over time your Operating System (Windows) will slow down as you install more things to it.
If it's simply the speed issue you'd like to help out, you could try reinstalling Windows instead, before buying new RAM (As that's the best way to clear out any **** that accumulates over time).

If you'd still prefer more RAM, though, we first need to figure out what type you have. Is it a PC or a laptop? How "old" is a few years? And what processor does it have?
Basically, any and all information you could provide will help =)

Proximo - I can tell just by looking at it that your RAM needs updating just don't let any seller pull the wool over your eyes - especially if they get the horn!
I'm scared to ask but have you tried upping your RAM before?

Please keep this on topic. The OP wanted assistance on upgrading his Ram not how to look after his existing one.

If i can get more mileage out of my existing one by clearing out the insides and re installing windows on it and taking it for walks then i could save some money

As an expert ram keeper and authority on the subject, can I ask if you got it validated? If you didn't, you will need to supplement its diet with servicepacks and ensure it doesn't have any viri.

I dispute your claim based solely on the fact that you referred to them as viri and not viruses :P

Did you get a rodent with it when you bought it? Make sure its a genuine mouse and not a fake gerbil which are renowned for causing irritability, headaches and irrational diarrhoea.
