i recently purchased another two gigs of memory with the intent of moving to 64bit, turns out 1 gig of it is bad so i have to rma but they don't have any in stock for a while so i was wondering. Can i got 64 bit with vista and use only 2 gigs... am i going to feel the hit real bad or is it still worth it??

Im running Vista 64 Ultimate with only 2 GB and I LOVE IT. I have an extra 2 GB sitting on my shelf. But, I dont use it. I dual boot Vista 64 and XP 32, and I notice i get higher scores with just the 2GB and I can OC higher ;)
