Keep in mind too, that windows 95 is 'optimized' for 32MB of memory. And then after will drop in memory access speeds until you reach approx. (theoretically) 2gig. Also depends on what apps you are running...

Well, then upgrade the ram.. since the programs your using will be memory demanding.. most graphical programs I know are.. you might as well memory is pretty cheap.. and you'll notice the differnece straight away.. and games love lots of memory..

Commented:
If you add memory from 16MB to 32MB, you will have the performance around 25% increase, but if you add memory from 32MB to 64MB, the performance improves around 6% in general.

wmmak is right, depends how you look at it... and what you need it for..

Speaking as a graphics worker, I find that most GFX programs are much faster.

Well graphic programs are the most greedy and memory intensive programs as far as I'm concerned. And think it's well worth upgrading the Ram for this purpose.. oh yeah... especially for games...
