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.

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
