The worst possible advise anyone can give is blatantly wrong advise, and you have done exactly that. If you don't know, put a sock in it
You are one rude person that has no couth at all!

My opinion is based on my experience which I clearly stated as such. But no you gotta get all huffy and rude.

YOU stick a sock in it............

You said nothing about "opinion" - you stated false facts. It's more beneficial if you take that advice, rather than AN. It'll save people some money that way.

Right, but there is no such thing as an opinion that dictates fact. We can have an opinion on whether or not we like the color blue. We can have an opinion on what type of cereal we prefer. There can't be an opinion on fact, it's fact. It is not your opinion that RAM ages and slows down, it's your incorrect assumption that RAM ages and slows down.

We're talking 20 - 30 bucks here. If that is an issue for the OP, then a new system is kinda moot. And still RAM is the best bang for the buck.

Is this your way of apologizing for giving erroneous information to a novice asking for help.

First technical sub-forums are not for opinion, go over the relationship area if you want opinions.

I am also retired, but that is not a license or excuse to give totally wrong advise to someone asking for a little help.

The original poster was asking a question, expecting a factual response, not an opinion. You gave an opinion, stated as fact, and it is absolutely wrong (for being a fact). You stated from experience that behavior of memory. That is a sample size of one. A sample of one only indicates existence. My sample size is a little bit larger, by a few orders of magnitude.

I make no claims whatsoever for my 'expertise', but my advice (take if for what you think it is worth) is free.

I too am retired (not bad for early 40's huh?), but that is because we were paid to give factual advice, not opinions. (Well the triple masters in EE related fields, plus a few others didn't hurt either).

Could you enlighten us on your opinion of what happens when you cross polysilicon with N-diffusion, or the effects of gate capacitance in a CMOS device? Enquiring minds want to know.

If we're done bashing can we get back to the OP? The point has been made... repeatedly.
