Hi all, I am in the position of getting 2x4gb ram for a good price. It's going to be a 3rd party brand - Hynix, which I have had good experiences with in the past. I have windows 7 32bit running in VMware Fusion, because I have not been able to bootcamp for some reason (hangs on installation). Anyways, I have been using photoshop 7 in my virtual environment because my mac side is on the fritz. I just noticed on CHOPPPY and slow it is! Will 8gb or ram rectify my problem? I dedicate 2gb of my ram to the VM, but its still choppy and slow. How much do I need to dedicate? I guess the questions are 1. Are there huge differences between namebrands and 3rd party ram? 2. Is 8gb of hynix worth it for $150? 3. How much ram should I allocate to VM? Thanks if anyone has answers!
