Hey i was wondering, im building a new rig and im on a strict budget. Will one gig of OCZ platinum XTC ddr2-800 RAM bottleneck or really halt performance by more then like 20 FPS in modern games like COUNTER STRIKE SOURCE, and call of duty 2? Do i REALLY need 2 gigs, or is 1 gig fine. BTW plan on playing 1024x768 resolution medium settings. THANK YOU im getting an x1950 XT, e6420, so will they got bottlenecked?

You really should have 2 gigs for gaming on XP... Vista, honestly 4gigs. Vista with 1gb of memory = forget playing games. How much are you paying for that XT because you can get yourself an 8800gts 320 for just a little more with a lot better performance. If price is a concern I would go with a x1950pro or just get the 8800. Also what kind of power supply do you plan on using?

Playing at that resolution there is no bottleneck. Are you planning on OC'ing that processor because they go 3ghz stable and beyond!
