Default Time for some new stuff

I will upgrade my Windows XP to MCE2k5 in a few minutes, but I have to ask you this:

What software for tweaking would you recommend me? I need to test most of all tweaks and I'm looking foward to see a great change.

Also, This is kinda stupid but...can't I transform a 512MB RAM stick to make it a 1GB? That would be cool eh?

You can compress tapes to make it a 40GB instead of 20GB, so I was wondering, why not compresing memory? All it takes is compression to me...

Gah, Google is your friend lol

Well.... sorta. You can compress the data so that you can fit more of it onto the same amount of space, but you're not really expanding the amount of space available. Also, it wouldn't really be worth it to do something similar with RAM since it would take such a long time to compress and decompress the data anyway.
