We are purchasing some new desktops for our company and will be installing Vista Business SP1. We need to run with 32 bit hardware and OS due to the limitiation of many of our 3rd party applications.
I would like some feedback on the amount of RAM I should get for a std users. I am thinking 2GB should be fine. They will be running - Office 2007, Outlook, Symantec End Point Protection, web based browser apps, some small client server SQL apps. Nothing really taxing, except for the occasional massive spreadsheet and powerpoint.
Feedback on 2GB vs 4GB would be appreciated. Cost does not play into the decision, strictly performance. Is it going to make a difference or not?
