Using 64bit Windows, just how much RAM is reasonable for running VisualStudio?
I am possibly mosting likely to move my job laptop (WinXP, ThinkPad T61) to Windows7 quickly, and also intend to seize the day to update to a 64bit OS and also make use of the boundless quantities of RAM this will permit
Given that laptop RAM not free, just how much RAM would in fact make a distinction to my regular dev setting - VisualStudio running in a number of circumstances, Firefox with umpty tabs open, probably 1 or 2 various other applications running too? Will I see much distinction in updating from 32bit XP and also 2GB RAM, and also if so where is the removed factor? Is 4GB sufficient, or will certainly I see a recognizable renovation with 6 or 8 or whatever ... Thanks!
