Does installing additional RAM increase the potential lifetime of a computer? For example, if approximately 100% of a computer's RAM is used on a daily basis, does this have a "wear and tear" effect on the lifetime of a computer? Would upgrading more RAM be less "stressful" on the computer (and therefore increase its lifespan) or is some other part of the computer just more likely to naturally fail after say 4-5 years of use (and so worrying about RAM isn't an issue)?
I'm wondering about this question to determine whether:
1) I should be more frugal in the amount of windows/apps I have running simultaneously (i.e., whether I should change my daily usage habits) so that my computer lasts for a longer time than it would potentially otherwise.
2) I should (in addition to changing my habits) invest in more RAM to increase potential lifespan of computer?
