Building a new system for windows 7 from my old 939 ddr400 setup that ive got now

new one will have gigabyte am2+ mobo and phenom 2 955 cpu

going to be fitted with 8gb xms2 1066 memory,

question is is 8gb overkill ? it will be in 4 x 2gb sticks or will windows utilise it all ?

its going to be 64 bit windows 7

8GB is overkill.

A very few select apps will perform better with 8GB but many from tests that I had read when I was considering it perform worse with 8GB than they do with 4GB.
