Hello, i am a power user and i was wondering if i should upgrade my laptop from 2gb to 3gb for $50+ (expensive because it is DDR3)
or to 4gb for $100+????
or, should i just wait for prices of DDR3 to go lower???
right now fry's electronics has 4gb of ddr2 for $23
The currently available DDR3 ram will not give you a discernible performance benefit over DDR2.
Personally, I'd get DDR2 - they're so cheap these days, it's almost like a free upgrade.
personally, I would wait for DD3 to come down or use DDR2.
I wouldnt recommend 4gb of ram unless you were on 64bit, your laptop will only read maximum 3.75 I believe to 3gb
32 bit only use up to 4GB. 64bit provides up tp 32 GB
I would go for 4GB RAM, especially if you're a power user. Not sure about DDR3 though, it seems that the price performance ratio doesn't justify it.
