I am building my VISTA machine right now.
Bought some very expensive OCZ Flex (PC9500) DDR2 sticks. Only 2 GB though.
Will that be enough to run games, do video rendering, basically edit my home movies......
Also if I decide to get more Dual Channel DDR2 RAM does it have to be the identical make or can I drop some different RAM into the 2 open slots/banks?
Even 1GB is enough... so with 2GB, you're all set.
They don't have to be identical, but they should be as close as possible to the other two sticks. Brand usually doesn't matter, but specs do... any RAM you add should be as fast or faster than the existing RAM in your computer.
