DDR2 Memory Capacity Performance

Posted on Friday, July 20 2007 @ 06:20:37 CEST by

Today we confront the claim that computers running the Microsoft operating system Windows Vista require 4GB of memory, particularly when gaming. For quite some time now I have been using the 64-bit version of Vista Ultimate on my gaming system and have noticed a few performance issues when using just 2GB of memory. However, the question still remains “How much faster does 4GB of memory allow Vista to run?”...

Memory capacity articles always seem to be 50% fact and 50% personal opinion. First of all before I continue please note that we only recommend 2GB of memory for Windows XP systems, while you can quite easily get away with 1GB of memory. However, Vista is a memory pig and we recommend chocking any system running Vista with as much memory as possible. This means those running the 32-bit version should look at running 3GB’s of memory for optimal performance while 2GB’s will get you by. Even if you are not gaming we strongly recommend that you do not use just 1GB of memory with Vista, we have found it to be very sluggish for basic e-mail, word processing and Internet tasks with just 1GB.
