    I dunno. With larger memory sizes getting common (4GB anyone?), hybrid drives and readyboost it seems a bit pointless for desktops.

    I'd probably buy one though, or pay more money for it to be included in the motherboard.

    Yes. It also makes me wonder what stuff they might have put in there that has more sinister possibilities...

    ...but hey, maybe I'm just being paranoid. :hehe:

    I agree, I wouldn't use it :yawn: if I needed more memory like that then i would get a board that holds more RAM :yawn:

    Readyboost as long as you have more then 2gb thay shown no inprovement as superfetch wold of all ready loaded it up into the system ram cache

    useing an USB stick in my pc to use readyboost slows my games down makes them stutter more but i am guessing thats the USB interface doing that on an PCI-E interface it supports 256MB Each way

    if buying an vista pc does not matter what specs it has as long it has 2gb of ram (dual core cpu should be min tho)

    if playing games on Vista get at least 3gb ram {so get an 4gb Kit 2x2GB, even if your useing vista 32 bit (it only see 3.2gb out of the 4gb but thats not an problem) or thinking of getting vista 64 later on} or the games will suffer on High detail levels {BF2142 for e.g. {need to get my other 2x1gb replaced pc does not post with them in}

    i find games run not that well on vista any way vista looks nice superfetch works as intended DX10 hmm only Company of heros (1.7v) has DX10 support (looks very cool tho)

    Well if you get the new Asus PCIe sound card then you could put it there insted :D If you really need fast memory access then you could use the iRAM thing, that could work almost the same as Intel's Turbo Memory thing :D
