This week Gail, Joe and Deepak are holding an informal discussion about RAM.

According to a CNet article last week, RAM prices will continue to rise this summer as DDR2 rolls out.

Here are some links to some of the things we will talk about:

Memtest86 - Memory Diagnostic Page

Mushkin Computer Memory

Corsair Memory

Crucial Memory

Sharky Extreme Memory Pricing Guide

Win98 & Win ME Memory Management

Virtual Memory in Windows XP

Windows Tweaks

Deepak, Joe and I also discussed some Windows XP tweaks:

in RegEdit, Receive Buffer Tweak....Local Machine\System\Current Control Set\TCPIP\Parameters... Make a new DWord Value, TCPWindowsSize, then change it to ffff (hex) close and restart computer.

Also in RegEdit: Disable Paging Executive, Local Machine\System\Current Control Set\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management, DisablePagingExecutive, and Change from 0 to 1.

In Services disable Indexing and Messenger (not to be confused with Windows or MSN Messenger)
