    1gb is enough lah, for most things at least.

    not a fan of amd chipsets
    might be a little noisy with such a fan

    you choke your dual core with only 1 channel of ram. get another sick of 1GB lah..

    I'm thinking building a PC on a <$700 budget, I've got LCD, DVD drive and most of my stuff already. So I only need a CPU, M/B, ram, HD, PSU, case and I'm good to go. That's about everything a new system needs..

    With the low RAM prices now, get 2 GB better.
