And yeah, you dont really need more than 6MB, you shouldnt find any problems with 6MB. If you do your problems probably lie elsewhere..
I have a PT6 deluxe (it will handle 12 gig, shown in sig)
I want more then 6gig to help offset the huge amount that WMC is eating up when recording TV in the background.
Before when I started up the computer I was using only 20% of my total RAM
Now with WMC running in the background just when I start the computer I'm using almost 67% of my total RAM (6 gig currently)
Say I'm also Downloading a torrent in the background as well and I'm up to about 85% of my total ram. Even at this point the computer is running just fine and I have no problems
Then I start up a game of bad company 2 online in a 32 person multiplayer game and I will get slow frame rates.
I know that 12gig would be way overkill and I don't want to spend another $150 on 6 gig, but if I could pick up just another 2 gig card for 1/3 of the price I would be set.
The CPU never hits full load so I don't think the bottleneck is there.
