How does system memory effect gaming?

  1. i have seen alot of gamers using only 1-2 gigs of memory (mostly pc6400).

    my question is, how much is enough and how much is just over doing it when it comes to playing games.

    2GB is pretty much the standard for a game PC. If you only do very light gaming or play older games, 1GB is fine. As cheap as memory is now, 2GB is usually an simple decision.

    thank you, wish i asked this before i bought my memory. ;)

    one more question, since 2gigs is fine, witch of these would you recommend:

    *4x 512 mb dual channel pc6400
    *2x 1gb dual channel pc6400
    *1x 2gb dual channel (not using the dual channel lol)
