Hi all, My imac currently has 8gb of ram, and I am wondering if there is any benefit to increasing this to 12 or even 16gb? Will it help my programs run or load faster in any way? I have tried researching online, general consensus seems to be that it only helps with multitasking, but I can't find any authorative source on this. It currently has the stock 1tb HDD, but I am not confident enough to swap in a SSD myself, nor do I know anyone who can do it, so said option may not be viable as of the moment, cognizant as I am to the benefits. I am not really a power user in the sense. Mostly light tasks like surfing, word processing, gaming (on window7 boot camp), though I may run imovie from time to time. I do however, like to keep a lot of windows and programs open and running in the background. Thank you all for your advice in this matter.
