Or when Windows 8 is released.

It will need 12GB to boot, and another 20 to run office.

Please tell if I can put a 2GB single memory card instead of 2 x 1GBs inside and what would be a good buy for it?

Thank you.

I would go with 2x1 or 2x2 so you get dual channel. They come in kits.

You COULD put 1 x 2GB stick in there, however your performance levels wont be as good as if you have 2 x 1GB sticks in there, which will utilise the dual channel - probably for the same amount of $.

Also try and put the same type of memory in there - if you are buying them differently or upgrading; to optimize performance again (if you have one stick slower than the other they will run at the slower speed)

Do you still need suggestions? 1 stick or 2?

As for the motherboard, how much max Ram can it hold?

Here's a good tip to learn how to put it together. Take one apart and pay very close attention to where the parts go. After that, put it back together. That's how I learned. (Make sure you're in a static free work zone or grounded as to not dmg equipment)
