It should all work together, but you can never be sure with generic ram. It'll make a decent gaming computer.

It should work just fine. Recently I was reading about memory and found that there are games that will use even more than 1 gB of RAM (no specifics were provided).
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Generally it is MMOs that can eat lots of RAM although other games are starting to show up which can make use of more than 1GB of RAM. Going from 1GB to 2GB is WoW makes a real difference.

I was reading some reviews to and noticed some games like Battlefield 2142 actually takes advantage of 2GB's now.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
