This might not be fully relevant, but I'm starting to seriously consider upgrading to 2GB. I've got 2 sticks of 512MB Kingston DDR400 at the moment.
I'm a big fan of the Source-Based Games, but lately they've been taking a while to load and then crashing with looping sounds. HL2: Episode 1 is easily the biggest culprit. If I can actually load a level, most times I can hardly play it for 5 minutes before it hits a wall.
I've tried everything but I just can't get HL2 Episode 1 to consistently run stable. The frame rates are quite reasonable considering the 3790's age, but it just crashes too often.
I'm finding that Source-Based stuff is gradually guzzling more and more RAM as time goes on.
It didn't seem all that long ago that 1GB was a magic number and "you'd never need more than 1GB". I think it can be safely said that those times are no longer
