Re: New to Computer Building
OK, get 32 bit if you want to. But I assure you that Vista is a good OS, I have had no problems at all and I'm very happy with it.
2x2GB or 4x1GB. The advantages of 2x2GB are that you will have room to upgrade in the future and ummm... well that's about it. And by the time you will need more than 4GB, you will need to buy a new system. The advantages of 4x1GB are tha it's a lot less expensive and I have not yet seen 2x2GB modules available with CAS 4 latencies (4-4-4-12) so I'd say get 4x1 if you're going to be getting 4GB.
