    Do I need more RAM
    « on: March 21, 2019, 03:07:31 PM »
    Hello I hope you guys might be able to help me. My old computer fried so I bought a refurbished one at new egg. The problem is when I'm watching movies or videos it takes a long time to buffer, it's slow, I don't play games just watch movies on Netflix and YouTube. Should I buy a new computer with a better processor or just buy more RAM? I have listed my computer specs below. Thank you for the help

    The problem you described would be due to an inadequate Internet connection for your needs, and not related to your computer specs, which are plenty for what  you want to do.
    I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

    Right. Get another provider.
