Each their own, I trust my sources as well. Info like that isn't really what I'm looking for in this thread, and I'll point back to my OP. Each system is different. Even if it did consume more (assuming you're right), I've been meaning to go from 4 GB ram to 16, and can if I ever had an issue. I think my system could handle it, even if yours couldn't.
Pretty sure you stated you had 2 GB of ram earlier, which I mean I would never run a system on that. Just like how my bf's dad was going to give me Win7 so I could reformat... but it was 32bit. And I laughed, and said no way am I putting that on my system. Not only is it not compatible with my settings (iirc 32bit doesn't support more than 2GB ram), but since I play heavier games often, who in god's name would use 2GB ram these days?
AND W8 only supports 64 and 84-bit systems, so I wonder if it's even runnable with less than 4gigs? Hrmm?
