    How much memory/voices should I be able to use with this rig?

    Hey Guys,

    pardon the ignorance. long time music nerd - first time giga owner. I just purchased this PC. Rougly it is:

    AMD San Diego 4000+
    2 GIG RAM
    2x 250 Seagate Barracuda Raid 0.
    Wavecenter PCI.
    Wn XP

    new computer, 2 months old.

    Now I am hoping with this computer I could load a whole orchestral pallete but I am not sure that I have this computer maximized.

    Giga says I can use 1498 of my 1900 Ram, but I doubt it is using that much. When I load enough instruments the next one I load does a message like "Unkown system error. Continue to load performance?" I guess that mean its out of memory. But that seems wrong because my memory meter is only up to 57 percent in the lower corner.

    I noticed the two master tweaks by that guy mathies, I can't seem to get the load time optimizer to work I open it, load stuff and nothing happens at all. It makes me wonder if the other memory expander tweak app is actually working too.

    Please help, I would love to maximize this computer!!

    57% is actually not bad for GS3. You may be able to get as high as 70% with other presets. Then again they may give you less memory and crash your PC. Trial and error I'm afraid.

    I believe the "Giga Tweak" also works with GS3.

    It defiantely works with GS 2.x because I'm able to load to 99%.

    Google for "Giga Tweak"

    If so how do you know for certain they are actually working? Whats the highest memory one can get in Giga 3??

    Are you supposed to combine the presets in Giga with this program also??

    Why does the load time optimizer not work? It makes me think that the other is not working either.

    The memory optimiser came about for GS2.5 (I think). It is included in GS3, although I got better results by trial and error.

    The maximum memory that you are likely to be able to use is around 1.05 to 1.1GB.
