    PS. I think 4 X 1GB is better than 2 x 2BG.
    Not sure that having 1gbx4 will make that big of a difference between 2x2gb.

    These are Dual Channel memory kits anyways...however, if you jump to DDR3 RAM, I'm sure you will see a huge improvment...but these sticks are too expensive at the moment and not worth it.

I know that my older machine reacts completely different with 2gbs as opposed to 4gbs. It only detects 2gb. But, when I add that extra 2gb the system will handle multitasking with greater ease. There is no way to prove it, except I have taken this puppy to the extreme and back, and no crashes. JMHO
    To add to Jerry's reply (sorry, not meant as a joke :D )

    I concur that adding RAM will increase multi tasking speed. It frees the page file and stops it from always being written to, so the hard drive is only used for launching applications.

    I recently upgraded from 1GB to 3GB of RAM on my home PC (Vista 32) and the speed has increased by about 40%!

    Example, here's one on sale right now:

    It has nice timings too.

    The PF usage (Bottom left) is the amount placed on the Pagefile (Disk) not memory used.
    To see the memory used look at "Physical memory" three entries
    Total
    Available
    System Cache
    Take the available from the total to get the memory used
    When I use Procoder all 4 cores are between 60 and 100%
    Total 2095500
    Available min 200000
    System Cache wildly varying
    With the Quad core render time for HD to HDV better than real time, 6 min timeline takes 4.5 min instead of 12 min on dual core
    Impressive It will be interestimng to see how long it takes to encode a 2 pass DVD
    Regards Barry

    Brandon and I think a like :)

    Just because RAM is the same type doesn't mean that it will play nice together. :)

    I'll still talk to you, because I like you. :) Besides, I spent some time home last year too.

    Now that I think about it, if RAM is affordable to you and you have more than 4 slots for RAM, I would get 4 x 1GB. By getting them all at once, you have less to worry about regarding mismatched or mixed RAM.

    "If it is reasonably priced you could prepare for the future with the 4 Gigs"

    Are you trying to tell us something? :)

    Depends on the Price of the memory.

    If it is reasonably priced you could prepare for the future with the 4 Gigs.

    If it is rather expensive then wait. BUT... with waiting comes the questions of Will you be able to get the exact memory later and if you can will the two runs be truly compatible.

    With memory just because the type is the same doesn't always mean that it plays well together... even from the same manufacturer.

    Under WinXP 32 SP2, the maximum user address space is about 2.5GB to 2.8GB. Even if you have 4GB RAM, WinXP 32 only maps the 2.8GB or so for a user program. The rest of the address space is for the OS and h/w resources (especially PCI-E cards).

    In short, unless you are running WinXP 64 - there is little or NO gain in putting more memory greater than 2GB.

    EDIUS (and most other video editing programs) are not memory bound - but I/O and CPU - especially for RT effects under EDIUS.
