Well can you list the games you play on it or at least how many you've played on it without problems?

Er, all of them pretty much. At least 30 games ranging from Quake 3 to Oblivion, CNC3, Battlefield 2142 (aside from needing to run it as an Administrator because of Punkbuster) and so on.

Even 1GB is fine for Vista, as far as I've used it.

jimbo_0002;3987351i seen on a review that it would be good to have 4 gigs for vista, sorry no source for it like others have said if you want more then 2 gb you have to have the 64 bit OS to reconise it. Also wondering how much your system cost all up?? planning to get something similar:)

32-bit can run 4GB TOTAL which includes all other RAM (VRAM,etc.) so it can run more like 3 GB. Im planning to go with 32-bit home premium so im just wondering wheter or not to go with 3 GB (2x1GB,1x512MB). as for price im looking around $1900-2300 with tax and all.

32 bit applications can access up to 4096 mb's of RAM (4 gb's), though only 3 gigs will be recognized by the application, and the rest will be allocated for system resources, if I recall correctly. I may be wrong though.

thanks and i would recommend 2x1gb and the 2x512 instead of 3x1gb if you were thinking of that, if you do it with the 512's you get the duel channel working in your favor :) so ive been told..
