Who'd want to run any version of Windows on less than 4 GB RAM anyway ?
Yea I got 2GB and it's barely good enough...lol
me, i have 2 gigs lol and everything is perfect
Thanks for the link catalinoo9. Some of us just like to see what we can do with old slow machines. I have a dual core Pentium laptop and a desktop with 4 gigs for my main machines, but I have an old homebuilt pentium 4 1.5 Ghz on a Intel D845HV MB with 768 gigs Windows 7 Ultimate activated with an Intel Pro 100+ NIC modded with an acer SLIC 2.1 instead of a loader. Machine is pretty speedy as long as I don't try to run more than a couple of programs at a time. Installed 7 home premuim first and then did a anytime upgrade to ultimate with OEM SLP key from forum. Would like to mod the BIOS on the D845HV but haven't found a way to do it yet.
mine 4gb! run smooth!
i used to be an avid 2GB user and would poo-poo any remarks about "not enough memory" ..
until one day.. i was playing GTA San Andreas and the game ran poorly..
so i went out and got 2 more GiGs...
installed it ..
and what a difference !
the RAM used to hover at 50 - 60 % constantly..
but with the extra 2GiGs.. it idles @ 20 - 30%
and GTA ran smoothly !
the PC's boot time improved dramatically !
Overall responsiveness/performance was dramatically improved ..
so i do recommend atleast 4GB of RAM for Vista/7 ..
Why would anybody sane attempt that?
Some of insane people just like to experiment.
ofcourse it does, you have installed extra 2 GB..
2 GB 1 GB used
4 GB 1.3-1.5 GB used..
mine 16 gb running perfect
who actually believes a screenshot?
A computer with 128MB or even 256MB RAM would most probably mean an early 2000s system. My 1999-2002 desktop PC had 128MB.
