Default memory

I'm a newbie. I'm buying a new copmuter and I basically want to save pictures and video, and I also want to download music and movies. Should I get vista or XP?? If I get vista do I need more than 1g of memory??

get xp. uses less resources so youll get better performance, especially if you only get 512mb or 1gb ram. it sounds like you dont need vista
