Performance Tuning for Windows Vista

I need some advise about Fine Tuning the Performance of Windows Vista (32-bit Home Basic Edition).

I am also told that Windows Vista needs a minimum of 1GB of RAM to work and it also utilises all the available RAM, unlike prior Operating Systems. Is this true? Is this something good or bad.

Thank You

i asked the very same question to myself when i got my hands on the first Vista computer :)
and while looking for a guide on internet, i found this article interesting
http://support.gateway.com/s/software/MICROSOF/vista/7515418/7515418su584.shtml

and the minimum requirement for vista is 512MB RAM, and this means, that Vista CAN run on a 512MB RAM system....now that's another whole issue that HOW it will run! :)

i would suggest to get atleast 1GB of RAM in order to make Vista feel comfortable, as if you notice the memory usage of a freshly installed vista os, you will notice that its already taking up 550-650 MB of RAM!

vista is very much high on graphics, so get a good and solid kind of video card, preferably an ATI Radeon which has unshared memory.

and when it comes to the question whether its good or bad? you cannot really answer such a question. every new product has some pluses and minuses, and it takes some time to get adjusted with it...like XP, vista will also take some time to make people good about it :)
