There would be no point running x64 with those specs, to take advantage you would need at least 4GIG of RAM or more.

That's what I was thinking. Crap, I only have the 64 bit install disc and they've discontinued downloading >.>

You can still run it, but it would perform better if the RAM was available, I say just go for it or alternatively you could try looking for the 32Bit build on a torrent site.

I have no problem getting by with my 2 gigs of Ram . The most i have seen it use is around 1250mb, while i was transcoding video files .

Am i missing something? I don't have as many processes running as some i have seen here . I presently have 43 .

I have 4Gigs of RAM and usually have about 70 processes running and use about 1.7Gigs of RAM, but the rest gets cached leaving virtually nothing free.

Hmmmm..

My missus is getting me a couple more gigs for my birthday . Hopefully i will see some benefit from it . I like the idea of having 4gigs installed, anyways . :)

I've tried both 32 and 64 bit, and I have a ThinkPad T61p with 2 gigs.
x64 I find it rather sluggish, at least on my system.

Luckily I ordered another 2 gig stick so hopefully it should give me a needed boost.

No one likes a showoff, mate. Not even me.

Lucky you have even got a mATX ECS board, as well, i see .
