I have had my computer for around 5-6 years. It's a Dell Vostro 200 Slim model. My OS is Vista Home Basic 32-bit. It has 1.00 GB RAM and my processor is an Intel(R) Core Duo @ 2.00 GHz.
Can I replace my two 512 RAM sticks with two 4GB RAM sticks without damaging the computer? I don't know a lot about computers, but is there a proportion as to what RAM you have with processor or system type or anything else?
Is it okay to go with extremely large RAM? Or am I putting too much weight on buying more RAM, and should I just opt for a new computer or operating system?
