XBMC / Cache / RAM Requirements
Curious, most builds seem to have 4GB of ram vs say 8. I know with XBMC you can set a cache size in the advancedsettings.xml file, and I believe (think?) it utilizes the onboard RAM vs a hard drive.

Does it not help in this regard to get 8gb vs 4gb? I'm just curious if 4GB is reccomended because of budget concerns and or if 4GB is all you'll every really need for an HTPC as more than that will simply never be used?

Sorry for all the Qs, before I buy I'm just looking into everything I can!

4GB is more than sufficient for XBMC, assuming all you plan on using your HTPC for is XBMC. 8GB on an HTPC would be a waste.
2x2GB is all you need under windows
