Hi all I have just joined the forum so apologies if this has been dealt with previously. I have a Mac Pro (mid 2010) Quad core 2.8 (with a 1TB 7200 hard drive) with what was a woefully small amount of RAM - just 6GB - (2GB x 3). My question is, with a newly added 8GB RAM from Crucial a few weeks back, should I generally see a bump in performance. I don't use much heavy duty processing- hungry applications - Logic being the only one, but not often. Also, I have put the new 8GB RAM card into slot 1 (of 4) filling the remaing 3 slots with the 2GB cards. Does the configuration of RAM in the bay possibly impact performance. My gut instinct is that the processor is just not as sharp as it once was but any thoughts or advice would be helpful. I have run a load app to check processing power used and the figures / stats all look very below anything to worry about.
