Re: [Parts Check] Video or no?

I've got 2x4gb ram already. Enough?

For the average user that is more than enough, and gives you room for extra. For what the prices are now might as well go 8GB.

The video on these Sandy Bridge CPUs (2xxx series) is decent for non-gaming stuff.

My laptop has an older i5 540M that while it delivers good battery life (4+ hours on the 6-cell) leaves something to be desired for performance. Some of it is probably bad software but plain office-type tasks can have sluggish video performance at times.

On the other hand I built my HTPC with an i5-2300 and have the option to add a (half-height) video card. I haven't seen the need, it has handled everything I've thrown at it quite smoothly.
