A question regarding my new gaming system and the P4C800-E Deluxe.

Hello all. I'm building a new gaming system and have a few questions based on the fact that I will be running a P4 3.2EE, on an Asus P4C800-E Deluxe with an Asus Radeon 9800 XT, SATA drives, Audigy 2 ZS, and WinXP Pro. Also no overclocking is planned. 1. Do I really need more than 1GB of RAM? Will I be able to do away with a swap file by using 1GB of RAM or should I go to 2GB of RAM. 2. What memory should I be looking at? What is the most compatible with my mobo? Thanx for reading, I hope you can help.

[quote name='voodoothenoob']buy some cmx512 pc 3200 and overclock to 3.6, if u overclock higher get pc3700 or higher[/QUOTE] You won't need more than a gig of ram...going higher is overkill. Also, save some money and get the 9800pro instead of the XT...the XT will get you slightly higher benching numbers, but playability-wise you won't notice the difference AT ALL.
