[snip] It largely depends on the motherboard/chipset used. If you have one that can address the amount you install, it won't slow down. As an example, I'm still using a (now old -- would you believe two years!) Gigabyte HX2 which, as delivered, could address only 64MB. However, by fitting an extra TAG RAM chip into an already installed socket, this increased to 512MB -- the maximum addressable by the HX chipset. And yes, without the extra chip, the system did noticeably slow down if you installed more than 64MB. So, before fitting extra RAM, check what your system is capable of addressing -- it *should* be in the manual. Regards Charles - Please turn off HTML mail features. Keep quoted material short.
