There is no set number of rules to follow when considering if your computer will need a memory upgrade. However, there are general tips, which can be adopted.
Many computer technicians would advise you to upgrade your memory after key times. These key times include after upgrading to a new operating system, and upgrading to a better sound or video card.
When you have decided to install a better version of the operating system you are currently using, it is a good idea to think about upgrading your memory. Your old memory might have been fine for the older operating system, but this might not be the case with the advanced features of the new operating system.
Often computer owners decide to upgrade their memory after they have replaced a sound or video card. Upgrading your memory is especially important when the new video or sound cards are high-end models. Your cards will work more effectively with higher memory.
