Memory FAQ Topics
||What is the difference between Ram and Virtual Memory?
||RAM and virtual memory are two different things. Virtual memory allows you to use a portion of your hard drive as though it were RAM. Because your hard drive is up to 100 times slower than your RAM, virtual memory is much slower than RAM.
When you upgrade your RAM, you may discover that you use your virtual memory less because you will now have more memory available to complete the tasks that were previously handled by your virtual memory.
