First of all Id like to respectfully say your all not very bright when it comes to computers. no offense. First of all your RAM does matter alot. And yes 32 bit OS only address 3.25Gb of ram however Windows xp/vista have 64 bit versions which cost the same and can address up to 8 Gb of ram. That settles the first stupid argument.

Second, CPU's you all seem to not know much considering you all write the clock speed and an occassional actual name (core 2 duo doesnt count). As for clock speed yes it matters alot however there are two other main factors, Cache (amount of super quick ram is held within the actual cpu) and FSB(frontside bus speed, how quickly your cpu can use your ram). Hint: all AMD chips lack in cache and some in FSB so comparing intel clocks to AMD doesnt do them justice.

Third the whole thing about no programs use this or that. Hell yes they do. If you actually had any demanding programs (firefox doesnt count, lol) youd know running on low memory dramatically hurts performance.

Fourth none of you even wrote what mother boards you have (im assuming u have no idea). Mother boards matter a lot they connect all the parts together. Basically for a mobo FSB is what counts cuz it must match your cpu's.

Fifth my beautiful computer built by myself.



Intel Core 2 Duo E6550 oc's to 3.3GHz 4Mb cache 1333MHz FSB

ATI Sapphire Radeon X 1950 XT

Seagate 250GB HDD (idk why u all think HD space is so important when its so easy to increase)

Abit IP35-E motherboard

2Gb Patriot High Performance Tight Time RAM

Apevia X-discovery case with blue LED lights lining the case and fans
