Actually on second thoughts, even if the program doesn't work, there are still the compatibility options.

Edit: For some reason the edit button isn't showing up on my main post. What's with that?

I reposted this so I would actually be able to edit it. Sorry about double posting.

You could consider this ram:
Newegg.com - G.SKILL 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Triple Channel Kit Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
Won't have to mess around with a mail in rebate for it.

Scratch that SeaSonic PSU and get this one:

Newegg.com - CORSAIR CMPSU-750TX 750W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply - Power Supplies

So much cheaper, more power, and it even has an MIR for even more money saved. Corsair rocks.

The only program I've ever had a problem with was Star Wars Rebellion which came out in 1998. IIRC it did work it just had some sound issues or something. Besides that the only problems I have are with programs that don't have signed signatures. But you can get around that by booting Vista with the disable digital signature enforcement option. A little annoying but not as annoying as running out of ram. Plus you could always virtualize a old windows OS through vmware or something.
