Besides your not going to experience a bigger improvement over 2GB even if windows XP could handle it. XP while running a games doesn't even use all of the 2GB. Vista however is a memory hog and 3 or 4GB will definatally help. You have to have at least 1GB to run Vista somewhat decent.
Yeah, but Vista utilizes external HDDs as RAM. I think that is awesome! I have a 160GB external HDD and that thing would be great to use as a 160GB of RAM. I didn't believe that such a thing was possible, but I checked the Vista website and looked into the performance section of the Vista website talking about the EMD (External Memory Devices).
