Hi Room,
I currently have 1 gig of ram in my pc,which i mainly play the latest games on.
Is that enough and does anyone know of any games that require more than 1 gig to run smoothly

Easily sufficient; you just need a decent graphics card and processor now.

Doom3 in Ultra detail does my pc was running with 1.3+gig ram usage with a page file of 1 gig when doing playing Doom3!!!!)..........more than 1 gig of ram also comes in handy if you have a lot of background applications running , use Fast User Switching or run memory heavy programs such as video editing.I have 1.5 gig of ram which works well for me.


In general terms 1 gig should be fine for most things......but if you have the funds more wont do any harm.Remember the law of diminishing returns applies...in only a few circumstances will you see any benefit
