Perhaps, but my experience so far with WinXP and non-Pro applications, is 1GB is enough and 2GB is bragging rights. My most heavy usage consists of video conversion/rending at the consumer software level. Don't know what the consumer applications would be that require 2GB or more, but my impression reading posts on the web (presumably Win7) is that DRAM size has far more to do with bragging rights than need. That and the number of cores seem to be the current PC phallic status symbols.
