Man! Those latencies are terrible! I would expect G.Skill to have been able to get it at least 1 step lower on everything.

4 GB kit usually has slower latencies

I know, I just didn't expect them to be that bad.

Knowing Microsoft, it probably is. I think I had read on the Inquirer that Vista was taking up about 1.5 Gb of RAM, and that they had issues while running BF2142. Those latencies are terrible though. My G.Skill DDR is rated at 2.5-3-3-6 but runs smoothly at 2-2-2-4 so hopefully it can handle lower latencies.

i run RC2 and it doesn't use up that much memory. Just after boot it hits just over 500mb!

500 is even too much. Well, hopefully nLite can take care of that problem.
