Thanks for the help. I think I'm gonna go for a 512 stick for now, as I never really need more than that (I've never gone above 292.. checked task manager) I sometimes have problems when running complex programs and I forget to shut off BOINC (Like Seti@Home, but newer set up, for multiple projects.... grid computing stuff) I'll be running Windows XP and Mandrake 10.1 (dual boot). I'm still new to linux, but I'm eager to learn it. I'm all in favor for an operating system that you can customize if you have the know how... and what's better is that it's (legally) free!
I forgot to mention that I am building my own PC. I'm gonna end up with 3 video cards so I can have 3 monitors that work independently.... Not really necessary, but Imagine walking into your friends house and seeing a computer with three monitors.....
