buffered ram is ram that buffers data before it fully excepts it. its like the same as ecc error correcting code. buffered is better than unbuffered as long as your mother boa…rd takes it. you have to check your ram you have now and see if it has it. but be careful of static, it can killl your memory chips and boards.

random access memory
RAM = Random access memory.. It is a volatile (loses all data stored when the computer is turned off) yet fast data storage device used in computers. Reading/writing to the h…arddrive takes a long time, due to moving parts, so the RAM acts as a go between to 'speed up' calculations.
RAM in computers stands for "Random Access Memory". The more of it you have, the more applications it can store in memory therefor decreasing loading times and making you PC a… lot more smoother and instant.
ram means how fast your computer runs.
Random-Access Memory, or RAM, is the method of data storage for most personal computers . It is computer data stored in circuits that do not require physical movement to be a…ccessed (unlike CDs, which have to spin, etc.).
Random Access Memory. To simplify, RAM is basically what the computer is thinking about RIGHT NOW, as apposed to ROM (read only memory) which are things that are STORED on a c…omputer.

RAM in computer terminology means "random access memory."
Random access memory. It's space to hold temporary data. The more you have the faster the computer, until you reach speed constraints caused by other components, such as the c…lock speed of the chip
RAM stands for R andom A ccess M emory. The term Random Access refers to the fact that the computer can read or write to any specific addresses in any order required…. It does not have to be gone through sequentially. This is the memory the computer works with when it is running a program ... as opposed to the storage memory of disk drives. While disk drives are also random access, they are not referred to as such. Disk drives are much slower, so the code the computer is working with is copied into RAM while it is using it, along with any data it might be working with.

Random Access Memory the other one is ROM which is Read Only Memory
RAM stands for Random Access Memory . What this means is thatany location in such a memory can be accessed at any time and inany order without having to be concerned about wh…ich location wasaccessed just before or will be accessed just after. This is incontrast to Sequential Access Memory where the locationsrecirculate in the memory and can only be accessed when they arecoming out of the memory in preparation to be put back into thememory. In general Random Access Memory is usually assumed to imply thatthis memory can be both read and written, but Read Only Memory(ROM) is usually also randomly accessed even though it can only beread (if the computer tried to write to a Read Only Memory the datais simply lost). Random Access Memory is available in both Static Random AccessMemory (SRAM, only requires power to retain data) and DynamicRandom Access Memory (DRAM, requires both power and periodicrefresh cycles to retain data). The now obsolete Magnetic CoreMemory that computers used up until the 1970s are also a type ofRandom Access Memory, but require no power to retain data (I havepersonally seen Magnetic Core Memory in old computers stillcontaining a runnable program that had been loaded more than 15years earlier, when the machine had last been shutdown).
