good luck playing future games

I disagree, if you have the money buy the ram. Do you know what encoding is? If you ever do it, I suggest having a good amount of RAM, or you are gonna be waiting around for a while. Having all lanes filled up with RAM is not gonna slow you down. You will still have the dual channel on lanes 1 and 3. Besides, Dual channel only slightly increases performace, sometimes as low 5% percent.

By switching to 2 gigs, you can not have windows page file any of your information, which means the information is not cached on your harddrive, taking up both space and actual latency times.

There ya go..
