Dude that isn't necissary. I can run iTunes, Azereus, and BF2 just fine. And that isn't because of the CPU, it is becuase I only use 18-23 processes.

Cut down all of you're windows look-good ****, the game does not need 2 gigs.

Other games would love to use 1 gig.... but run perfectly fine on 512, its just the same way here....

It would be wise as the future will have better uses for RAM and better temperary storage and alocation in half a year from now. But if you not looking to the future x64 uses larger registers hence using more ram so it would be wise to look into it.

Wait until more people start buying the 2 gig kits at least then, and they are competatively priced and maybe some better options.

But right now I'm hard pressed to recommend it to anyone not in CAD.
