My pc runs mint 14 cinnamon just fine with 2gbs of ram (tried win 7... booooo it stink, i just got wine and can run mostly anything windows can + linux).
Dont look at me that way I am a cheapskate (first custom built pc of my own)

Will be running Linux Mint 64bit Nadia exclusively (my favorite OS by leaps and bounds over anything else)
Is this ridiculous overkill to do 16 gigs with this RAM-efficient of an OS?
