what os should i use. note i know nothing about differncess betwin 32 and 64 in any of the os.
Vista home premium 64 bit is my recommendation.
If you have not purchased the hardware already, please reconsider the DDR3 choice.
Core 2 cpu's are not very sensitive to ram speeds.
If you look at real application and game benchmarks(vs. synthetic tests),
you will see negligible difference in performance between the slowest and fastest ram.
Perhaps 1-2%. Not worth it to me.
Don't pay extra for faster ram or better timings unless you are a maximum overclocker.
