    If you have less than 2GB RAM, go with WinXP. If you have brand name parts, you will have no problem with X64.
  2. Buy a 128 bit network portal accelerator for your computer's catalytic converter.

    They have some with blue LEDs that look cool if you have a see thru case.

  5. When you're playing the game, does your Hard Drive LED light up, and can you hear the hard drive being active?

    If so, you definitely need more memory.

    And if you're in the business of running games, you should consider no less than 1gb. I was using 1gb myself with WoW, and it was unbearable.
  6. 512 MB will run Windows XP fine... without games
    You need at least 1 gig though I prefer 2 gigs for intensive games or applications.
