I have been noticing some system lag when opening over 8 tabs on my Chromium browser, using Libre Office Suite and especially when running XP on Vitual Box.
My system details are as below:
Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E5200 @ 2.50GHz × 2
Intel® G33 x86/MMX/SSE2
991.1 MiB DDR2 , HDD 300GB (with almost 200GB Free)
1) Should I buy additional RAM? If so,how much RAM can I add? Can I add it along with my existing 1GB RAM? And the new RAM should it be same DDR2 as existing or can it be DDR3.
2)Or if I create a swap file, will that help. If so, of what size should it be.
