    dear friend,

    Of course- 2GB RAM is enough to install windows 8 release preview 64 bit version.

    2GB RAM is enough to install windows 8 release preview 32 bit version.

    It'll not slow down your computer as well as the OS.

    You'll get a nice performance from windows 8.

    20 GB hard disc is required to install windows 8 64 bit version.

    16 GB hard disc is required to install windows 8 32 bit version.

    Check the attachment to know more about this.
