Buying a new Core i7 PC

  JAM3S 04:33 14 Dec 2008

Hey guys.
Just after Christmas I'll be buying a new gaming PC, with one of those new Core i7 chips.
Will this system be okay with Windows XP, rather than Vista? and will 3Gb of DDR3 be okay to go with it too? I was under the impression that the new chips/DDR3 motherboards like tons of memory and I know an XP system wouldn't use much more than 3Gb of ram.

Thanks for helping me out :)

If you use XP 64bit you can go a lot higher with the ram.
