I'm not saying get rid of it, I'm saying it's best to have 4GB with the resource hoggin applications, and games. While you could get away with 2GB, you may see a performance hit, if playing really demanding games, or using memory intensive applications.

Unless youre running 64 bit os, I don't think you'll see the extra 2gig.
