    You only need more than 4GB on any machine if you use video/photo editing software or run multiple RAM hungry apps. For a general use/gaming maching 4GB is plenty although with X58 and it's support of triple channel memory then 6 GB ( 3 x 2GB ) is the best choice.

    DDR3 is faster than DDR2.
