Intel core 2 duo E6600....2 or 4gb ddr ram?

  revco 11:37 27 Sep 06

I'm buying a new pc.
Will have Intel core 2 duo E6600.
Is there any real need/advantage to getting 4G ddr ram or will 2G suffice?
May upgrade to vista eventually.

Using 4GB of RAM with 32bit Windows XP has some issues click here

Do a bit of Background reading

For VISTA and 64bit versions of Windows 4GB might have an really depends on what you are doing with the pc.

For gaming and general usage 2GB is plenty good enough.Heavy duty video editing and CAD would benefit from more.

I would go with 2GB to start off with,but make sure it is 2x1GB sticks leaving you room for adding additional memory later.
