    2 GB or 4 GB to run VISTA?

    Well I'm going to upgrade my pc, this month, so I was looking to this mem Corsair Dominator 8888C4. It is a really kick ass 2 GB KIT. Or with the same money I can run with a normal Corsair Dominator 6400C4 2 GB kit x 2. So the question is 2 or 4 GB to run Vista? I actually have 2 GB kit for running XP.

    Ultimately the lower latency stuff is what you want in your rig. Maybe put 2GB in now and 2GB later when you can afford it? My recommendation anyway.

    Yeap. And it seems in Vista in 32 bits you have the same limit as XP now, with only 2 or 3 gb working, and not 4 gb.

    MAD beat me to it. Only use 4GB if you plan to run the 64 bit version of vista.

    2GB is enough to support Vista 32 and 64bits that would work fine.
