I'm going to be purchasing the m11x w/i7 640um 1.2 ghz overclocks to 2.2 I think.
I'm just curious if I should go with 4gb or 8gb of ram.
Will the cpu bottleneck 8gb, I've heard yea's and nea's on both sides.

Thanx in advance.....

The problem is not bottleneck, it should be whether 4gb is enough to run your program. Usually if you load a lot of program or using program that store a lot of file in RAM e.g. video editing, you will need RAM. RAM upgrade is easy enough so I would not worry about it yet if you don't do the activity I mentioned above.
