Just wanted to know how much DDR ram I really need in my HTPC

for DVD, Dscaler and HD. I have 256mb now.


Thanks,


Nicholas

You probably need to post more info about your setup--but chances are, you will need more then 256. Since you will have to upgrade, you might as well go with 1024. Drew

If you only need to playback, 256 is OK, 384 and up is preferable.


If you need to encode, 512+ please.


Never record, so don't know, but I would bet 384 should be OK.

512 would also keep the swap file on the harddrive kept to a minimum so the HTPC would respond quicker if attempting to multi task alot, memory is so cheap, why not?
