  1. to trust or not to trust?
    btw when i record a TV show the sound is not in sync with the video
    i've tried seperating them both and then putting them together yet it doesnt work
    when im doing the recording its has a memory use of around 800mb
    its either my sound card that is too slow with the via chipset or the use of paging file slows down the recordingto trust or not to trust?

    I don't see why this would be a RAM issue (on another notice, Patriot is a trustworthy brand), though the page file might have something to do with it, but it's highly doubtful.
    My money is on a software or a tuner-related problem. Make sure you have the latest drivers installed for your TV tuner, video card, and sound card. Try using another recording software, see if it helps.

    Here's an article on the subject

    Bear in mind that it might be a playback problem. Have you tried playing the recordings on another computer or video player?

    Ram would play a part for buffering purposes. Slow speed of hard drives, fragmentation seriously hamper video playback.
