      I finally gave in to the fact that I needed more speed/memory. I only use it for personal stuff and didn't realize that even though I'm not a gamer I could still use more speed/memory and be more efficient.

        Crucial helped find which stick of RAM was needed for an old Gateway computer. With so many other sites to buy RAM, you needed all the PC info.
