i have 2 gb in my current machine and it is ok but the new machine will start with 4gb. This machine will need to last about 4 years with little upgrades. i normally just add more ram and upgrade cpu's. the ram is so cheap i was wondering just to start with it all. this machine is used for autocad work, 3-d modeling, and home use stuff like movie editing and gaming. I also run many apps at the same time (iam Lazy). I was going to bite the bullet and get vista i think which leads back to the ram question. if i keep win xp 4 gb ram would be fine but not so sure with vista.


thanks for the replies.
