Windows 7 Ultimate 64 - OEM Service Pack 1

Microsoft recommends the following minimum hardware to run Windows 7 Aero:

1 GHz 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
1 GB (1 gigabyte) of memory
graphics processor with minimum of 128 MB graphics memory, which supports DirectX 9, with a Windows Display Driver Model driver, Pixel Shader 2.0 in hardware, and 32 bits per pixel
For best results, follow these graphics memory recommendations:

64 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution that is less than 1,310,720 pixels (for example, a 17–inch flat panel LCD monitor that has a 1280 1024 resolution)
128 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution from 1,310,720 to 2,304,000 pixels (for example, a 21.1–inch flat panel LCD monitor that has up to a 1600 1200 resolution)
256 MB of graphics memory to support a single monitor with a resolution greater than 2,304,000 pixels (for example, a 30–inch wide-screen flat panel LCD monitor that has up to a 2560 1600 resolution)

minimum requirements
When a software program states it requires a minimum of 1GB to operate well, does that include the RAM needed to run the operating system? For example, if I'm running a machine with 2GB of RAM, and the program requires at least 1GB, do I therefore need at least 3GB of RAM?
