    Hey all you computer savvyfolks, I've picked up this months issue of 3D World and it comes with a full suite of Cinema 4D R9 3D CGI modeling software (you just can't svae the stuff you create) and I'm not sure I have the 512 of Ram that it requires... How do I check my system for the RAM and everything without getting out the screwdriver and opening the tower? On my old computer there was an icon you could click on but this one (Compaq Presario SW4020WM) I can't seem to find anything that tells me what's inside.

    Thanks for any info you might have on checking your system!

    Depending on your Operating system... You should be able to right click on "My computer" and see it there under general. If not click on the performance tab...
    Find it?

    hold down the windows key (between Ctrl and Alt) and then press pause.
    There are only 2 infinite things... the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not too sure about the universe.

    Download that program.

    It tells you everything about your computer. It's a really helpful utility!

    What's your processor speed, BTW? You may need a whole new system...

    I would agree, if your system came with that much stock then its likely got a slow processor as well. With programs that say the mininum of 512 it would probly be better to have more. Expecially with a program like that.
