    I want to increase my memory in order to make Photoshop work faster (AND BETTER).
    I was just recalling from several years ago that the recommended [in Windows Help and Support] 2.5 times physical RAM for the swapfile/paging file/virtual memory had to be increased considerably to enable better use of photo editing programs and CAD/CAM programs, may have been referred to as a "scratch disk". Frequently, turning off the Virtual Memory then rebooting, creating it again with a fixed maximum and minimum size kept it from being fragmented, not needed defragging itself. But that was back when HDDs weren't as fast in data transfer nor were the computers. One thing I did that made a noticeable difference in usual computing was having a separate HDD with most of the Virtual Memory on it [did keep 2GB on the main drive for programs that looked there for it], different read/write heads and processes helped.

    Thanks.

    Edit: Which bit? Making mistakes or being Human?
    Both, lol. I've made my fair share of mistakes here.

    @Bree we're human we make mistakes. No big deal. Been there done that.
    Edit: The only exception might be Brink,

    No, not you. I was just wondering which part of you first sentence didn't apply to Brink

    Ok, I'm with you now. I was thinking of his avatar when I posted. Might be both for him too. I think he might have made one or two minor slip ups. I have seen him post the odd,


    So basically, I think we have all made mistakes from time to time. It's how politely you get corrected that really matters IMHO. I have one member here that seems to delight in ridiculing me when I mess up. It doesn't bother me near as much as he likes to think it does. Its what the ignore list is for.

    - extremely rare - perhaps just to try to convince us he is human...

    Yes, the machine is the Dell M6800.

    Is the machine in question the Dell Precision M6800? If so I'd rely upon Crucial's information [have been for quite some time for my RAM needs].

    Note: a workstation can be any computing device, either a Notebook/Laptop or Desktop, should also include Smartphones and Tablets. Some software EULA/End User License Agreements describe installing upon a workstation and a portable device in control of the same user, pretty much covers all devices.

    Thank you very much! I was always under the impression that my PC would take up to 128GB. Now I have to determine if I really need 32GB.
