no right now the sweet spot for windows is 2gb ram. i have heard that 4gb actually slows it down but i have not had experience with that. right now i have 1gb valueselect ram and its fast enough for me.


MacBook 2.2GHz Santa Rosa | 120GB HDD | 4GB ram
Intel C2D E6300 @ 3.2GHz | 4GB ram | 880GB total HDD space | Gigabyte P965-DS3 | eVGA 8800GTS 640mb | Corsair HX 520 | Audigy 2 ZS platnium | Antec 900
