allyn22 Posted January 9, 2006 Share Posted January 9, 2006 Hello, I am looking at building a system (listed below) and came to a dead stop when I got to memory choices. The last couple of PC's I built were PC133, so it's been a while. I am not a game person that wants to squeeze every last little bit of performance out of the box, but if I can I will try to if it is stable. I will be doing mainly video/music editing (Adobe Premiere, Audition & Photoshop) and am not sure if 2 GB is better than 1 GB in this respect, although I think it would be. I didn't want to spend $300+ on memory unless it was really worth it for my non-gaming use. From the few reviews that I was able to find, it didn't look like the PC6400 gave so much better performance than the PC5400, but that is one of the things I need recommendations on. Questions: (Remember - I'm not gaming) 1) 2G or 1G - I'd rather buy the memory I need now - not add later? 2) Dual channel or not? 3) PC5400 or PC6400? 4) Do you have any Corsair part recommendations you could give me. 5) Not memory related, but - do you think the Antec TX640 (400W) will be adequate for the equipment I have listed? Thank you for your time! Pentium 4 640 3.2 GHz ASUS P5WD2 Memory ?? GeForce 6600GT SoundBlaster X-Fi Platinum Antec TX640 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
