Games crashing

I have recently had DCS keep crashing on me with 16gb of ram and the log recommends to go up to 32gb but I cant spend the money to buy more RAM but I need it.

Any advice on what to do would be appreciated or even giving me some RAM would be a godsend (DDR4 btw)

Try increasing the virtual memory in your system.

 

Also what are your full specs?

Have you monitored your temps to check if it is a non-RAM issue

 

And I assume other games do not crash?

A crash mainly happens when I load in but it has happened when I am in a mission

Hmm, it seems like an intense game to run then

 

Did the virtual memory help?

Go into task manager, disable startup programs under the startup tab. 

16gb of DDR4 should be fairly affordable. I don't know your situation but it's probably worth saving for.
