It'll be enough, but I'd personally get the 4Gb set, that way you won't need to change that in 6 months time.

my thoughts are that it really comes downt to what OS youare using. if you are using a 64-bit OS then 4GB COULD prove useful in certain situations, but even then you are likely not goin to come even close to using all of it.

on the otherhand with the prices on ram at crazy low prices it might not be bad to future proof a little bit.

as far as gaming goes i dont think you will see any difference when gaming at that resolution or many others for that matter.
