How to Upgrade Your PC with RAM
Have you ever thought about upgrading your PC’s RAM? Performance is king when playing games on a PC. You’ll need a decent rig if you want to be at the top of your game. Playing demanding video games and running intensive programs can put a lot of strain on your systems, especially when using them all at once. If you’ve noticed a sudden drop in your computer’s performance, you may be tempted to splurge on a new rig. However, before you go raiding your piggy bank, it may be worth checking to see if your slowdown issues can be fixed by increasing your system’s RAM. These days, most of the processing power is handled by your PC’s graphics card. That said, the amount of RAM you have will still determine the number of tasks your computer can perform before grinding to a halt. Random Access Memory (RAM), also referred to commonly as “memory”, helps store data that needs to be readily available for various programs to run. If you’re seeing spikes in performance, then it may be time to boost your PC’s RAM.

When do you need to upgrade your PC’s RAM?

If your PC is struggling to load programs and becomes unresponsive during crucial gaming sessions, then chances are it’s time to upgrade your RAM. Computer RAM allows you to run data-intensive applications with ease and increases your PC’s multitasking capabilities. Running multiple programs can lead to performance-related problems, as every application you’re running demands various amounts of memory. If you love to game, browse the web, stream, and chat all at the same time, you’ll need enough RAM to handle the load. Thankfully, you don’t need to throw out your current rig just yet! You can overcome sluggish performance by installing Kingston FURY memory.

Be sure to check how much memory your PC is using by opening Windows Task Manager. To do this, simply right-click the taskbar and select Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc), and then click on the Performance tab to see how much memory is currently being used. The performance tab will also indicate how many physical memory slots are available, so make sure you have the required slots before purchasing any new RAM.

How do you install Kingston FURY memory?

Thankfully, installing new RAM into your rig is incredibly easy and you’ll only need to set aside a few minutes of your time. Before installing, check your motherboard’s manual to find out the optimal sockets for 2x or 4x module installation.
