When I built my Desktop PC back in April of 2003, I threw 1GB in there. 1GB was SCREAMING for it's time! My god, I knew tons of people with 512MB systems, but 1GB? Not heard of often. Well, that's over 2-1/2 years now and I hear a lot of 1GB, some 1-1/2GB, but seldom 2GB now. I gotta say, I do recommend 2GB to anyone myself, and have for the past 10 months. My brother was building a PC, he insisted he go with 1GB after me saying go 2GB. Well, when he got into BF2, he found out 1GB sucked hardcore. He ended up buying another gig and it satisfies his needs greatly.
Ever since I put 2GB into my laptop, my god does this thing fly. I had so many problems in WoW having only 512MB to start with and I don't think I would ever go lower than 2GB again.
My next system, well, 4GB is my goal. I'm gonna build a decked out system that can last me another 2-3 years like my previous one. My laptop is getting old, having a P4 2.8GHz CPU and a Radeon 9700, so I'm thinking of building something new come fall next year. Whether it's a laptop or desktop, that will be up to the future to decide. If it's a laptop, I gotta search around for a chassis that supports 4GB, because I honestly don't see much around with that kind of support yet. I think by the time I'm ready, technology will have gone a few steps further and new options will be available to me.
