    how much difference will there be when using 4 gig rather than 2 gig on DAOC lab. 8800gts card, usually duel logging. I can do it fine atm but i just fancied more ram :p

    the 8800 drivers(forceware) for vista suck at mo btw

    and with xp32bit you will only address 3.6gig btw i have just got both vista and xp in 64bit for this reason got them both cheap as i got the OEM versions :)

    os and windows xp sp1 see's all the ram its only SP2 that screwed up the ram but tbh sp1 is full of holes

    Well, as mentioned. XP/XP64 only supports XXX amount of RAM. But when going from 2GB to 4GB you'll notice a huge difference, especially when it comes to high performance/requirement apps.

    (Ironically, Killder did give the best example... It's like 1024vs512.. Difference is obvious)
