No i am thinking of buying new ram memory...is that a good sollution?
doubt it is ram . Check performance monitor to see memory usage to be sure you could be maxing out.
have 4 gig of ram. I never use more than 1.5gig no matter how many plugins I use. Plugins use CPU cycles unless there is a leak in the software of course. Then mem could be getting eaten up. I would take a closer look at the resources
before dropping money in one place. Is suppose 2 gi of ram is only like $50 bucks or whatever
but going to a more powerful cpu may be more beneficial. Even a faster spindle/hard disk can increase performance
more than adding ram in most if not all cases.
