Do I need more Memory?

Hi - I just purchased a Dell XPS 8910 which came with 16GB RAM, 2TB SATA HDD, Windows 10 64bit. I will be using Sierra Charts with 5 monitors.

Just wondering if I add an extra 16GB RAM will it make any noticeable difference? Was looking at Crucial.com and 16GB runs $119.99 USD.


Thanks for the input.

Cheers,

Scott

No, 16GB is more than enough.
If you really want to speed up things add an SSD drive, keep the 2TB HDD for things which do not requires speed.

Adding to @sam028 :

You can cross-check the RAM usage via your task manager.

Sierra Chart regularly uses 2-5GB of RAM per instance, including a reasonable amount of symbols and data.
So more RAM will not make much of a difference unless you run many more concurrent instances of SC
and/or hundreds of symbols on tick data. But even then a better CPU, SSD etc. would be a wise(r) investment.

I don't play with a computer unless it's 64GB.

But seriously, that small amount is a cheap upgrade. I'd up the CPU and the RAM, especially if you use additional applications in addition to Sierra for news feed for options analytics.

But if only Sierra, then maybe don't need to worry too much unless you have like 60 charts calculating 15 indicators on tick update each.

As you already have Windows installed use it internally to replace your HDD.
Most SSD comes with a software helping to clone your HDD, there are free software too like Clonezilla.
It's not rocket science but if you don't know a lot about PC's you may ask for help somewhere.

Thank you for supporting diversity on the futures.io! Keep up the good work.

I'm fine with other opinions but in this case it's jokes which may let not very technical guys think that you can double your RAM in simply testing it or, more funny, speed up your Ethernet network with a flash light.
It would be great but this is not how it works.
