<font size=\"2\" face=\"Verdana, Arial\">At the risk of being the cause of trashing your setup: You probably need more RAM.Originally posted by LifeForceExplorer:
2) Does it tell me that I could likely upgrade
to GS160 without necessarily even needing more
ram? (Not that more ram is a big price issue,
just that I hate to open up my machine when
I\'ve actually got all this running smoothly
now - no clicks or pops, no apparent latency
probs - and I\'m getting a nice clean sound.)
Thanks for any comments. (Dang King, Daly City? I\'m in Pacifica.)
These might be famous last words, but upgrading the RAM shouldn\'t be a huge problem. It shouldn\'t cause anything that\'s working well to go south. It should improve performance (see how I keep saying \'should\' in case it doesn\'t and you come after me with a meat cleaver?)
If you backup all of your settings before installing the RAM, you should (there I go again) be okay.
Bear in mind that this advice(?) comes from someone who runs everything but the kitchen sink on his machine without any problems (I don\'t want to change anything for the same reasons you gave).
One day, far in the future, in a land far away, we\'ll trust that we can fiddle and change our giga setups without fear of the dreaded pops n\' clicks.
If you\'re happy with what you\'ve got, don\'t change a thing. If you want more, you might have to give the system more to get it.
