If you get a 32 bit OS with your new machine, then it can't even use all of 4gb. Only consider 8 if you have a 64 bit OS.

I have a bunch of RAM in my 64bit windows7 machines. According to task manager I rarely, rarely use over 3 gb. I run photoshop, illustrator, word, excel, and some other stuff all at once with large files opened.

I always like two hard drives, so I can make copies of all my data.

I like outlet.dell.com

They have stuff starting at $309. Just figure out what you want. They'll all get the job done -- just a question of how long you wait.
