I don't quite know how to dual boot. You have to resize a new partition and install there. How you do that? I'm not sure.

for a few dollars more or even the same amount (depending on how much the shipping would be for the memory you linked), you could get this 4GB set of G.Skill for $39.99 shipped, the advantage is that they have a heat spreader and would run less of a chance of overheating, they also look pretty cool...

I think wol-va-rine was talking about these: G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800

G.Skill makes some good stuff.

Yeah, I saw that. Well since I'm on a huge budget, and trying to save money for the HD 4850, I need as much bang for my $$$$ as possible.

And the $33 suits me well.

Thanks, though!

I don't think you're understanding what I'm trying to say, the G.Skill is actually cheaper by $1 because there is no shipping fee, the $39.99 is the total cost to have it shipped to your front door, unless you live in Cali (IIRC), and good lookin' out with that link AR, I forgot it in my post...

Yes. You'd have to create/resize a partition AFTER the older version of windows (at least that's the rule of thumb). For instance, I'm dual-booting XP/Vista. So, when I built my system, I formatted 4 partitions. The first for XP, the second for Vista, the third for my documents, and the fourth for movies. When I installed, I installed XP first, then installed Vista because Vista tends to handle the boot loader a little better than if you install Vista THEN XP (IIRC). Now when I boot I get a screen with the option to load a "previous version of windows" (XP) or Vista. So in this case, rule of thumb would be to resize/create a partition after the current O/S and install W7.

Anyone who's actually DONE this can reply and let me know if this info is correct....

Well, I'm impatient as hell..........but you know what. G.Skill is better ram..and probably a bit faster. so i could wait 3 more days.
