Me personally? I've run with just 1GB of RAM and disabled my paging file and I never get out of memory errors...then again I don't play PC games usually until they're either about a year old or they aren't the top-notch graphics intensive. I'd stick with 1GB w/400FSB. If you actually plan on using XP 64-bit edition go with the 2GB though.

You better with more RAM that RAM speed for video editing, especially with studio 9.

And if you plan using 10, then.... well,.. don't waste your money on it yet..

Do what I say not what I do

Hmmm...
Find the cheapest pair of branded 2x1GB DDR400 with CAS2.5
Mushkin Blue, GeIL, or Corsair Value are good.(You know what I'm talking about)

I am running my two OCZ gig sticks at CAS 2.0 at 1T!!!

So it helps a little that I am stuck ay 333 mhz.

p.s. I guess I have to change my sig.

yeah, I have pulled out my share of hair with Studio since 8. But with 10, it can edit High def footage, and I am wonding if it can take regular mim DV tapes and up-convert them to HD?

I tried 10, it's damn slow and full of bug. Don't bother with it yet. Wait for the patch that should be released soon.

You can have more info about what I mean if you look up for the Pinnacle forum..
