PCSTATS Asks Microsoft Windows Vista: How much memory is enough? - PCSTATS Asks Microsoft Windows Vista: How much memory is enough?
Wed, August 29 2007 | 5:52AM | PermaLink Feedback?
Do you need as much memory when you're running office applications in Windows Vista  as you do when you're gaming? How much memory do you need in Vista to game comfortably, and spreadsheet smoothly? Usually a hardware upgrade isn't required for a new operating system. Yet if you are planing to upgrade Microsoft Windows XP to Microsoft Windows Vista, it's almost impossible to avoid a PC overhaul. If the PC doesn't have enough RAM to satisfy Vista's intense thirst, you'll be the slowest thing on two wheels.

Generally speaking more computer memory is better than less. However, installing more than2GB of RAM doesn't necessarily translate into a faster Vista desktop PC. Only a few applications may see improvement, and then the law of diminishing returns kicks in. So 2GB of RAM is generally considered the sweet spot for Windows Vista. As the operating system matures, along with supporting software, it's possible that number will climb. It's a wise move to choose a PC that can be upgraded to 4GB.
