Default New Build

i got to build a good budget gaming maching and i was wondering how good 3 sticks of 512 would work but 1gig is too small and 2gig is really burning a hole in a pocket because if i get 2gigs i wont be able to replace my ati radeon 9250 regular pci =(

Just get two sticks of 512MB for now and put them in dual channel. Then upgrade later as money allow. I'm running 1GB right now (2x512MB DDR) and it's terrific.
