Default Another Windows Vista Question

So with Windows Vista coming so soon I was wondering if the rumors about it needing 2 gigs were real? I mean I have corsair XMS 2 x 512 and its pretty decent quality ram, do you think I really need 2 GB?

Depends what you want to do with it. For games than yes you do need more RAM. The minimum for the OS to run completely smooth is 1GB. Add another for any heavily memory Dependant games and it will be equivalent to XP's performance with the right drivers.

What you saying coming soon, we can buy it over the counter now.
