#2

#3
3Gb:)
#4
2gb if for gamming
#5
you cant really compare the 2 as one has 1gb extra and the other is faster for what you are doing get the 3gb if your mobo has more than 2 slots as im guessing its a triple channel kit 3x1gb and more ram is more ram at the end of the day.

check out latency

I'd imagine neither are better for the use in question because both have sufficient capacity and bandwidth, I've never heard someone say HD Video playing is dependant on memory.

Generally though it's almost always more memory that's better. If your memory is slower you might get a 10% drop in performance, if it's not enough things don't run very well at all.

If your PC usage means you actually use more than 2GB then 3GB of the slower RAM will be dramatically faster than when the 2GB setup starts thrashing the page file; it will be very noticeable when that happens.

Certain games benefit a lot from RAM that is faster and/or has tighter timings but with your low end VGA card I doubt if it will make a significant difference.

For a media centre on W7 I'd say your current ram is adequate.
#11
You could possibly just about get away with using just the 1GB of DDR2-533 by itself and not notice any difference for what you are using it for with XP but Win7 will up the bar a bit especially if you go 64 bit.

You want fast start up then get a SSD.

Or even better use Standby. :-D

Yeah, that's right. Go with one with less memory installed so it boots up a few seconds quicker.........:whistling:
