Not sure what you mean bud.

I recommend having 2 GB in your system to run Vista nice and smooth :)

Even with a DVD burner running.

Vista does a great job of memory management so you should be fine with 2 GB to provide "coverage" for all items

It doesn't offer much by way of improvement. It also runs a lot slower for most things than both system memory and hard-drives.

Note that memory prices for systems is relatively low for most all types of memory :)

1 gig minimum for smooth operation.

2 Gig is generally recommended for VISTA, but a friend just picked up a cheap laptop, added a 1 gig stick for a total of 1.5 gig and he says it's running great.

Generally the burner software will maintain a ram buffer to prevent problems but if you demand too much for the cpu you have it can drain the buffer and make a platter.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
