    I need to get Hit Scraper running cause I only use PC- need more ram which I will order this week- went from 4g to 8g and it's still not enough to run all these programs to grab hits- now going to 16g. Turking has drastically changed in the last year, at least for me.

    I turked adequately on 4gb ram for a time.

    you're always utilizing 8gb/8gb?

    but I would never turn somebody off from getting 16gb of ram in 2018, because you should.

    I remember when I was running everything on 2 fb, with a laptop from 2006 that had 512 mb before I upgraded. :emoji_joy:

    When I bought the new one, it felt like magic!

    Ever since that Firefox update my memory leaks like crazy- I even rolled back to 56- but I can start at 1,100,000 k and it slowly goes up with only a few tabs open, up to 4,900,000k- using almost 5 g of my ram. It's crazy. I run task manager and watch it go up and up and up- I have to clear my cache before it crashes, like every couple of hours.
    I just looked at Firefox properties in TM and it says Size 497kb Size on Disk 500KB. idk but this sucks-

    Nope- just PC on Firefox and MTS on Chrome which I don't even have Chrome runninng unless I need it- because of the ram usage- I should just use Chrome all the time but I have all my shit in Firefox and I hate change. I downloaded Vivaldi, but haven't used it yet cause I don't have time to set it up. I really just need a new computer.

    Don't think your issue is with the amount of ram you have.
    I turk on a laptop with 8GB of ram, very rarely will I max that out.

    This is my setup with a second monitor.

    Can extend to a third monitor when the need arises.

    Just my opinion but the switch to chrome would be cheaper and less of a headache than upgrading your hardware.
    Memory usage might be a tad higher than FF but if FF is causing a leak then that kind of negates that advantage.

    I think it's definitely worth stepping up to 16gb of ram if your system will support it. If you get smoother performance turking and you're motivated to only catch an extra dollar's worth of work a day you'll pay for your ram in 3 months and after that it's all profit.

    Most people probably won't see any benefit to running 32/64 or even more ram, but there's a lot of consumer grade software that will see benefit up to 16, and it gives you enough ram to turk while also being able to switch your focus to something else without being stressed out about memory management.
