Agreed.Genesis said:RAM is not the only component that drives the speed of a desktop or laptop computer. RAM is only memory. I'd say your hard disk and how it has been set up would be a very important determinant of speed. Particularly if you got SSD. Then processor speed is for me the most important determinant of your computer speed. A computer's processor clock speed determines how quickly the central processing unit (CPU) can retrieve and interpret instructions. This helps your computer complete more tasks by getting them done faster. Clock speeds are measured in gigahertz (GHz), with a higher number equating to higher clock speed.
