Re: RAM for games
In my opinion if you're going to do any sort of gaming, 1GB is a minimum. If you're not going to then I still recommend 1GB but 512MB is thte absolute minimum..... if you're going to do a lot of gaming, go with 2GB. I have 1.5GB and since I added that extra 1GB a few months back, it has helped a lot with everything from multitasking to games.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
