OK. I will be running Cubase SX 2 at the same time.
get at least max. ram
2gb is a good amount. for cheap but good working ram i recomend kingston 1024 cl3 value ram. its not the fastest but worked for me on several (about 12 different) mainboards without problems. i had problems with mdt 1024 though.
I thought I read on several occasions that after some revolutionary tweaking (what's his name again) you could install 2 Gigabyte: 1,5 for Gigastudio and 0.5 for OS. I also believe the VSL message boards have a thread concerning this topic.
It's quite simple actually. You have to open the windows reg editor, and search for "pagedpoolsize" and "nonpagedpoolsize". Set these to maximum hexadecimal values by entering as many F's as possible and you're able to load the maximum % of RAM in giga. My 1,5 Gb machine gets up to 93% now.
Under GS3, would I be correct in assuming that by doing windows XP registry tweaks this would enable more instruments to be loaded?
I have 2GB ram in my dedicated GS3 machine, and would like to be able to load as many piano libraries as possible.
Anyone care to explain how this is done?

It was explained above in message #8. Simple enough if you are comfortable and experienced with making registry tweaks. If you're not, then get assistance from someone who is. (Back up your registry before making changes).
