I'm trying to understand the concept of RAM. I would like a definition of RAM, typical problems seen when not enough RAM (real basic please),a definition of VRAM,and how does this all relate to the amount of space I see available in my hard drive(I suspect there is no correlation),Is the RAM stored on my harddrive or does the computer just instantly see the chips? When getting info on an application program I see suggested size, minimum size and preferred size:both min and pref are changable by the user what does this all mean?
