Hi, could anyone help me with something. Which intel RAM would be better:

2G DDR2 1066 (2x1)


4G DDR2 800 (2x2)

I'll be getting home vista premium 32bit,core 2 duo 3.00GHz,geforce gtx 280.

Also whats the difference between:

Gigabyte GA-p35-DS3 1333fsb,DDR1333x4 non-integrated

and the

Gigabyte GA-G33M-S2 1333fsb,DDR800x4 integrated motherboard.

specifically the integrated part and would either benefit gaming?

The integrated board has graphics on the motherboard, the non integrated doesn't. Others may differ about the memory, personally I would go for the 4Gb.

I agree with chub_tor but be aware that ALL 32bit operating systems can only utilise a maximum of 4GB of RAM, which includes onboard and system memory, so even though you install 4GB you could get as little as 3GB utilised.

for 4gb as it will help with games and run applications faster
