Oh I know believe me. Most games only need a gig max, Sims 3 and one  
other are the only ones I know that need that much. The other one is a  
much more high-end game, massively more detailed than Sims 3, so EA  
Games have obviously done some bad coding in the fact that it needs  
that much memory.

I do agree that 3 gig is probably overdoing it, but it means that  
their computer -will- run faster to the end user.
