What game was it that required 2gb of ram? Since you have the 32 bit version of windows, the highest you can actually use is around 3.4, so I would say 2 should be quite enough.
And that looks like a very nice system, which should be able to handle any new game you throw at it on max settings.

Hey hashbrowns,

I just answered this topic in the general hardware section:
Is this a decent gaming computer?

Do not double post the same topic.
