Is the Corsair DDR2 RAM the best for Vista?

Just to note that I will not be playing games on this PC. It will be used for the Internet, MS Office, a bit of P2P and all the other day to day activities. With that said is the Leadtek 256MB 7600GS the best for my needs?

Any DDR2 800 5-5-5-12 or faster will be good.

Get a 7600gt or higher, just in case you might to run some games just for the **** of it, and the pc is more than adequate to run vista. Really it doesnt take much to run vista, the only diff from xp is the visual effects, which are handled by the video card, doesnt require much more cpu power than xp.

Apart from a few memory modifications, it should run Windows Vista pretty well.
my interest is piqued...
do tell, what nationality is samsung?

Korean

Unlike what the person above said. Samsung memory is actually good. They are one of the biggest manufacturers. All most all of the memory on high end video cards is made by Samsung.

But their other cheaper products do have the problems like suggested above.
