Sorry, I should have clarified. It’s not Chrome in particular, that just tends to be the one that I use most often. At the moment Chrome is using just short of 2GB, with no other memory hogs, but Windows says that 47% is being used. If I tried to use another big program now, I’d probably get warnings from Windows, or a crash. I’ve had two installations on separate drives do it, and I’ve either tested or swapped the other hardware, so I’m pretty sure that it’s either Windows or one of my programs. I don’t use anything unusual though. It’s a pain in the backside, but I can’t be bothered to troubleshoot it any further if I’m getting new kit.

I’ll stick with the 8GB for now and add more as I go along then. As long as everything works I can add RAM much more easily than anything else.

Just one last thing to check, does this seem right for the SSD?

ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 256GB M.2 Gaming Solid State Drive

Ebuyer have only got the 512GB and up, or the SX6000 drives which seem slower.

Thanks again Dave :)
