    Hello everyone, I need some assistance. How much memory would you recommend if I'm only going to play about 4 games on Windows?

    The games are:
    The Witcher - 15gb according to Steam
    Left 4 Dead - 7.5gb according to Steam
    Left 4 Dead 2 - 7.5gb according to Steam
    Oblivion - 4.6gb according to Steam (although I own it on disc)

    I only plan on using Windows to play those games since half of those can't be played on OSX and I need Snow Leopard for both Left 4 Dead games.

    By the way, I have XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 on disc. Which should I install? I'm leaning towards Vista since it looks better. I wish I could install 7 on my current MBP but I can't because it's one of those exclusive Snow Leopard features. ;___;

    You can afford an MBP and all those games, but not the US$29 for Snow Leopard? :p.

    If there is something keeping you on Leopard, note that you don't actually need to install it to use the Windows 7 drivers it provides.

    I'm not sure if you're asking for new hardware or how bi you should make your Boot Camp partition.
