Is my computer RAM adequate for the tasks I need to perform?

That depends on what tasks you need to perform and the amount of RAM that your computer currently has. Generally, at least 4GB of RAM is recommended for most computing activities, although more may be required depending on the specifics of your tasks and programs. If you are unsure, you can use a system information program to find out how much RAM is installed in your computer, then compare it to the requirements for the programs or tasks you intend to use.
