Type: DDR2 800, preferably Kingston.

Ammount: 2GB if on Xp (For you gaming nuts out there) 3-4GB for Vista Gaming nuts, 2GB for Vista for non gaming nuts.

Edit: Article FAILS to mention WHAT Operating System these RAM statics are recommended for... 2GB for Xp is all you really need, 3GB at most (For those high end games)

It is obvious this article is useless and provides almost no usefull information in addition to be potentially misleading. The amount of RAM listed on software packages is assuming it is the only software running on the system in addition to Windows....

How does this article even get approved is beyond me. It has nothing to do with gaming directly and fails to provide any meaningful information.

you just saved me from reading it! I'm actually having a problem myself with my RAM! I have 2x1GB kingston DDR2 800 and want to add another one of the same but my PC seems doesn't recognize the newly added module. I thought that it was malfunctioning but I swapped it with the older one and it works. my mobo is Gigabyte P31-DS3L and I read the limit is 4GB. what did I do wrong?
