Did I buy too much RAM for my laptop?

Tim November 29, 2010

I just purchased a HP Envy 14 Intel i560 CPU 2.67 GHz and has ATI 5650 GPU.

It dose have a 64-bit operating system, which I understand can access 8 GB memory, but I cant help but think I wasted 100 bucks in memory I will never use. However, I do play games like CIV V, SC2, and The Sims 3. What do you think?

    there is no such thing as too much RAM.

    Software developers tend to expect hardware to have more rather than less RAM, so sooner or later you will probably exhaust your 8 GB of memory. And 100 bucks is not too bad, upgrading from 4 GB might be more expensive.

    Enjoy the new laptop! :)
