    How much? Im planning to get 1.25 gigs, but i can always get 1.5 or 2 gigs

    Im only going to use boot camp to play low end games(roller coaster tycoon 3... maybe age of empires 3...)

    Not gonna have ANYTHING else on boot camp. Also, can a 2.0 GHz core duo macbook play call of duty 2?

    I run windows xp home with 384 MB of ram on my old PC. It all depends on what you'll be doing on your boot camp partition. If you're going to be doing gaming I'd go for 2 gigs if you're not using anything heavy a 1 gig should be fine.

    Oh just noticed you have a core duo like me. You def want either 1 gig or two to, dual channel memory right... anyways yes it will play call of duty 2 no problem. with two gigs your video memory can go up to 220 MB.

    AoE 3 only ask for 256Mb RAM, so 1G is good enough, what you need to worry about is graphic card, AoE3 ask for
