  29. A few things i have observed in terms of computer memory is the fact that there are features such as SDRAM, DDR or anything else, that must fit in with the features of the mother board. If the computer’s motherboard is fairly current while there are no computer OS issues, upgrading the memory space literally normally requires under an hour or so. It’s among the easiest personal computer upgrade types of procedures one can picture. Thanks for spreading your ideas.
