Vista and RAM

Will upgrading from 1g to 2g of RAM improve vista.

not used for gaming or video editing, mainly office and surfing including viewing video over the net.

hi, i found it similar to upgrading xp from 512mg to 1 gig. everything seemed quicker and unless you use some mindblowing software you shouldnt have to upgrade again, as long as dedicated graphics card is fitted.

This is the final page click here of a review about "Readyboost" in Vista.

I post it because the conclusions are similar to most analysts view on Vista, which is basically 1 Gig is fine but there are real improvements with 2 Gigs and very little improvement after that by say adding 4Gigs.
