Your motherboard is most likely be the limiting factor in how much RAM you can have, not Vista. Which is probably 4 or 8GB.

Oh ok. I was just wondering because you went from being one of the most helpful ST:T guys to the worst.

Sorry to hear about that though.

I hear it's not overkill... that 4GB is the sweet spot. I was going to install Vista with 2GB of RAM but I heard that with all of the main options turned on it slow it down and that the speed of XP blows it out of the water.

Haha...do you have a Mac? One of my setups for work is a quad dual-core operton with 16GB RAM. That's very nice...
Of course that's also a server, not a desktop.

4GB is the sweet spot with Vista. When I tried to install it with 2GB it was extremely slow on my cousins' computer. I tried again on my own with mine (8GB) and it was insanely fast. I'm guessing that somewhere between 4GB and 8GB is all you really need.

Yes, but isn't it women to men 11:1 or 13:1...something like that?
I think the odds are in your favor, if I'm right.
