Is there a tool or utility to check to see if adding 8GB of ram to my current 2GB ram will speed up my computer? I currently have a 3 week old 8-core 2.8 mac pro. Before I had a G5 with 8GB ram and I could open up many of my RAW images from my camera at once without noticing an uber amount of lag time. I noticed once getting the new mac pro with 2GB ram it took longer to load up the images. Now I'd think it would use processor power more than the ram but I could be wrong. I always set photoshop to use the most amount of ram which is around 3GB plus I could run safari and dreamweaver, illustrator and some other apps all at once without wanting to toss my computer out the window for lag. (I have little patience btw) So I was just talking with someone saying that if I add 8GB of ram its overkill for me to have 10GB ram. Though I also plan on running a virtual machine that will run a couple design apps that are windows only.. plus I use maya... but besides that. If it were 10GB or ram I have and its all to just run my browser, adobe design suite and maybe a couple chat clients it may be over kill but wouldn't I be right in saying that they would all run smooth all at once using 10GB of ram instead of 2? and yes I know its only 32 bit so each can only suck up 3GB ram. Just figured to me I could run many apps and have no issue with my computer with more ram. I found online 2 4GB sticks of ram and I plan on getting them this year so even though im buying them.. just wanted some input.
