>it means you can work on those 550Mb medium format scans without endless disk writes If you are using Photoshop, I doubt it since Photoshop still relies on virtual memory from scratch disks requiring disk writes and reads no matter how much actual physical RAM you have on the system. It keeps multiple copies of the file in its various versions on the scratch disk not RAM for multiple undos, for the history palette, and for the revert function for starters. It is only possibily the actual working desktop appearing copy that it keeps in actual physical RAM. As for 550 MB medium format scans, I have never had a medium format, large format, or 35mm scan even at maximum optical resolutions of or anywhere near that size. I suppose it is possible to get such a file size off a drum scanner. At any rate, thanks for the information on where you saw the 1 GB RAM and the costs. -----Original Message----- From: email@example.com [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]On Behalf Of email@example.com Sent: Thursday, June 13, 2002 10:12 AM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: W2K RAMlimits > Subject: RE: W2K RAM limits > > I suspected they would be pricey; but out of curiousity where > does one look > to find such chips listed and priced?

Abit's newest can take up to 4Gb. (Mac's stop at 1.5Gb, though hopefully the G5 will rectify this). Does anyone know if using W2K Server with Photoshop is ok? any issues? paul - Turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
