Is it worth to get that extra gig of memory?

as the title says,
I'm purchasing a system this weekend and I wanted to know if it would be a good idea to spend the extra cash for 2gb of memory.

If I buy the extra ram I'll probably take out the hard drive. I'm not in the mood to spend 1200 bucks loll. But is it really worth getting 2 gb? in prepare for vista. But mostly for the games.

Thanks.

I'm going to 2GB jump for my future system. Vista alone recommends 1GB minimum. Plus, if you load other stuff on there--the 2GB is a healthy choice.

I pressed 3 by accident. I'm actually in class right now, so I'm speed typing.

I would get the 2 gig, thats what i run at the moment and its a big improvement. Especially if ya running programs like VMWare and stuff

I 2nd the 2 Gigs of Ram,

But your Vidcard is weak man,

get a X1950Pro or X1950XT they will dominate the KO and are just as cheap in price.

Just a helpful suggestion.

You can do the research if ya want, but i already did it.
