Okay you lost me.

Isn't 4Gigs more than enough for... pretty much anything?


Right now 2 gigs is enough for gaming. You only need more if you do video editing, Photoshop or just like to have a lot of programs open at the same time. 4 gigs is more than enough for a home computer.

Or if you run Vista, it's like a big hungry baby sucking every ounce of juice out of your system to spend on itself, but hey, you get a bump in the vista experience scale, show that to your friends and watch their jealous expressions.

Not always true. Applications don't allocate ram automatically, common misconception. With older software too much allocation space could even slow you down. In the long run of course the more the better.

Eventually the actual amount of RAM exceeds the needed amount... What games actually demand 4GB anyways? XD

Crysis (--> min frames). Surprise...
But I think other games can benefit, too, not least MMORPGs, or coming stuff.
