4 gig is all you will ever need. But what the heck, 6 gig upgrade for free, might as well do that. Do not spend money buying more.
Thank you I am also looking at a Dell which I could purchase w/ Federal discount
Their RAM is 1066 vs HP 1333? What do you think of that?
What is your opinion of Dell vs HP? I have owned both. My present Dell has held up well but it is now severely technologically challenged. McAfee now runs my PC
Also, I can get Dell w/monitor, 4GB Ram. Dell has 320GB HD vs HP 640GB HD which is ok w/me. Dell has 512 MB NVIDIA G310 vs HP ATI Radeon HD 4350
Video card preference?
I might be leaning towards Dell as I can get what I need w/monitor for same price as HP w/no monitor
