I am a business major, and it has come to my attention that I HAVE to use Windows for a few different programs. Rather than drop $1000 on a new computer, I thought I would boot camp my current MBP 13" (in my sig, I think its mid/late 2009). However, I am a resource hog. I put my computers through their paces. Traditionally, I am used to Windows using more RAM than OS X, but I'm not sure if that is still the case (168k isn't enough for me, Mr. Gates)? Will my 2 gigs of RAM be sufficient to run Windows 7, newest version of office, and a stats program called SAS (sorry, unsure what it stands for. I'm new to this business stuff, just found my 'calling' a few months ago)? I will also probably have iTunes or a web browser of some kind open at the same time. I don't anticipate having Office and the stats program open at once, but maybe a business student can tell me if that is a likely possibility? How does this setup fair for playing Guild Wars 2 (I know, no minimum specs released yet, but if you had to guess) or EVE Online? My graphics card is a GeForce(?) 9400m I believe. Currently I play Counter Strike: Source and Day of Defeat: Source with little issue, at acceptable levels. Can I push into the realm of more complex games (I have old Battlefield discs that might be fun to take for a spin again)? I don't anticipate having to make these upgrades until summer or next fall, I just prefer to be (over)prepared. If I must, I can upgrade my RAM to 8 gigs... But thats going to be $100, on top of a new version of office and Windows 7 licensing costs (my school requests Windows 7 professional, specifically). My computer is currently 18-19 months old, I usually upgrade on a 3 year rotation when I had HP hardware, but I was kind of considering pushing this computer farther, since it supposedly has better hardware. I'm not sure if that changes anything or not. Because I tend to ramble, I'm going to sum up my questions: 1. I want to run Windows 7 and the newest office program, is 2 gigs RAM enough? 2. Is 2 gigs RAM enough to run Guildwars 2 and EVE Online with 9400m graphics card? 3. Should I bump my RAM? I could do 8 gigs for $100 from Crucial, but thats another $100 on top of everything else. I don't want to spend that if I can help it. Thanks, I appreciate the help!
