Hands-on: Acer Predator Triton 700 review
Does the Windows 98SE OS have a maximum supported RAM limitation. I have heard that if I try to upgrade my onboard RAM then I will only be able to do it up to a certain figure. Is this true? And if so, what is the max RAM that Win98 can handle?...
Thanks in advance.
it's Outer Technologies, not Outer Limits!
Excuse long winded response. I copied this from an e-mail I sent to someone with little PC experience. Ran 768MB RAM on Win 98 SE without problems
