How do I replace my ram?

I have 4gb ram and I want to upgrade it to 8. I could get a new pc, but I just bought this pc and I could get an external graphics card with the booster and other equipment but I heard you can replace it for quite cheap. Is that right and legitimate? 8gb is better for running windows and games according to my friends and I struggle/couldn't play my new favourite games so should I make this move and purchase one?

    Assuming that you have a desktop, not a laptop

    yes, increasing RAM to the degree you describe is usually fairly inexpensive.

    (Usually < $50 to add 4 GB of very high-quality RAM to your existing system)

    Although laptop RAM can be more expensive (depends on the system)

    it's still very much less expensive than replacing the entire system.

    Yes, increasing RAM from 4GB to 8GB should certainly significantly improve the performance of Windows

    and specifically the performance of high-performance games on the market.

    I would recommend upgrading to 16 GB if the price is not beyond your means.

    (Note: MORE than 16 GB is, according to current experts, of no value for current games.)

    16 GB of very high-quality RAM typically costs < $100.

    You will need to know your system specs


    - what type of RAM it accepts (probably 288-pin DDR4, but check anyway)

    - what speed of RAM it accepts (it should accept a range of different speeds, and I warn that the top-speed RAM is typically very expensive)

    - how many RAM sockets your system has

    On laptops you have to pull the bendable locks outwards and your ram pops outward up at an angle. 

    You have to put your ram in at an angle and push the entire ram stick angled downwards and the two locks clamp into position. On your desktop you have to pull the bendable locks outwards and your ram pops up out of the slot.You have to push the new ram stick into the slot up until it clicks and the two side locks close in.

    1) Take out a stick of RAM. 2) Examine said item and determine what type and clock speed the RAM has. 3) Buy compatible RAM that is faster.
