Edit: But since you are getting your computer tomorrow, I assume that you can't change anything.
I've been AMD user since my first computer way back in the day, going to remain that way. I know Intel has some good processors, but my heart belongs to AMD

Okay, I got question about "ReadyBoost"

I have 2GB of RAM, and I figure I'd try my 512MB stick flash drive for the **** of it for this ReadyBoost, says theres not enough space ... would I need to equal the 2GB of RAM as a Flash Drive for it to read it as enough space because the tip says to have 1 to 3x as much space on Flash as I do RAM.

No, probably the problem is you have too much data on your flash drive already for ready boost. personally though i doubt you will get any appreciable performance increase, you already have a fast machine. and flash drives wont be faster than hard drives and ram.
