so i recommend u gettin 2x1g ram.
well thats some handy information to know, well what do you think about the value RAM i linked to above, i am not interested in OC my ram so i don't see an issue with it. thanks for the help.

Kingston is a great brand. I would never hesitate buying any kind of Kingston ram. Good pick.

Windows xp runs fine on 256 mb of ram, its the games that take up ram. If you are playing games Id go with 2gb, 1gb is pretty good but you might as well get 2.
