Okay, so a couple of months ago, I packed my PC up to go into storage before moving house. During which, I opened it up to get rid of some dust since it had been a while since I last did so.

You can always buy some. ;)

You would have to buy PowerDVD Ultra or Total Media Theatre, though.

Okey Dokey.

If I really feel the need for more RAM I guess I'll buy another 2GB stick and have 8GB... assuming that the current 2GB is the same as the kit.

Thanks for the help.

Hey,

I currently only have 2GB of 667MHz DDR2 RAM installed in my PC, and I am beginning to find that it is limiting me too much in what I can do.

So, I just bought a 2x2GB 4GB kit... Is it...

I agree. They should have said explicitly that it wasn't Wii U footage. Though, honestly, you could almost tell it wasn't. None of it looked nearly as impressive as the actual Wii U footage.
