In some cases, you need to know the exact RAM specifications of your computer when checking recommended video game system requirements, when buying a new RAM, or if you want to buy the same model of RAM that you have.

Here are some general and common ways to check the RAM of your device.

Option 1: Check through Computer Properties.

For Windows 8 or later, right-click the This PC -> Properties icon. Similarly, on Windows 7 and earlier, go to Start -> right-click My Computer or right-click the My Computer icon on the desktop and select Properties to check the specs.

You can easily see the RAM information as shown below:

Method 2: Check the computer information with dxdiag command.
First press Windows + R -> enter dxdiag -> press Enter or select OK to open.

Method 3: Check with the msinfo32 command.

You pull down the RAM test item is okay.

Method 4: Use the CPU-Z software.
You can go here to download this software for installation and use for the machine.

After installation is complete, please restart the CPU-Z software- > select the Memory tab to check the RAM on the computer.

CPU-Z shows more specific RAM parameters. For example, in this RAM specifications above it shows:

- Type: RAM (DDR3).

- Size: RAM is 8GB.

- DRAM Frequency: RAM speed is 671.2 MHz.

These are some of the simplest and most common ways to check your PC's RAM and some other hardware information.

I hope this guide is useful. Good luck! :)

Very easy and simple.
Should do this when trying out new laptopts at the stores and make sure they are what they say they are.
This was one of the first things I learned as a kid.
Checking out specifics of computers.
I was always looking for a computer with bigger RAM than graphics.
Do you need a lot of RAM on your computer ?

It depends on what type of applications you run on your computer. 8GB is enough for me because I only play low and mid spec games. Some people who do video rendering might need more. :)

8 gb? Wow, you have a lot, man.
As a kid I had a computer with 512 of RAM and I thought that was the max I could get :ROFLMAO:
8gb is a lot and you say you dont even play high quality games.
I really did not know that gaming should require that much of a RAM.Like, what kind of a games are out there today that require such a power ?
