The amount of RAM one needs depends on what the computer is used for and what tasks it faces. A lot of DDR Memory RAM is required for editing video or music. In fact, one requires over four gigabytes of memory and more to edit video.

Random access memory, or RAM, is important if you are going to have a lot of different computer programs running at the same time.
