RAM being a bottleneck depends entirely how you wish to use your computer. You can hit 100% CPU/GPU Usage while only using 2GB, or you could be held back by not enough RAM using 10% CPU/GPU Usage simply by multitasking.

I'm running 32-Bit XP and with the Ram Limitation of around 3GB, I find myself occasionally hitting the 100% mark, but it's easy to avoid doing that if I don't run more than a few intense tasks.
XP 32bit with that sig rig??
