How much memory your Windows OS will recognize depends on which version of Windows you are running. 32-bit versions of Windows will see (and utilize) only 3GB or 3.5GB. To utilize more memory, install a 64-bit version of your OS. More information about OS memory maximums can be found here.

Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.

            I sometimes have to use my home computer to do work related duties and my 512Mb was just not cutting it anymore. I upgraded to 2GB of memory from Crucial and things have improved nicely.
