Memory Recommendation

Upgrading my RAM from 2 to 4 gb. Who do you recommend ? Crucial or Kingston

even Vista does not like 4GB.

If you're set on it OK but I'd recommend that you stick with 3GB unless you have a compelling reason for the extra.

Only install 4GB if your are running 64bit Vista.

No 32bit operating systems can fully utilise 4GB here

Thanks for the advice. Is 2 to GB worthwhile? I am using the computer mainly for photographic work.

Once you get above 2GB you will not notice much difference. If it is acceptable with 2GB I would stick with it and save your money.

I had read recently that on vista there is a tweak to make good use of 4gb of ram. I'm still on XP and cannot remember where i saw it maybe pcstats or tomshardware web sites.
