ive just been reading the geeks article about ram on lifehacker. Am i being stupid or cant you just plug in a suitable usb pen drive, say 4gb, into your port and use it as a "readyboost" to increase your ram? Works fine for me baby!

Well, RAM is RAM and USB stick is USB stick. They do not have the same effect. Yes, you might get a little performance boost with Ready Boost, but that is in no way a substitute for additional RAM. Just compare the access timings and data transfer rates and you will understand. The USB stick only gives you a small performance advantage over the HDD for the paging file. That's all.
cows can be tweaked a bit (i tried it) but didn't seem to go any faster. so i added more ram, but that didn't seem to work either. then i found out it had a virus so took care of that now it's running smoothly and real fast. :)
