need I show more

A little old, but if I can address this clip for a moment... it is really stupid that Vader is too lazy to run.

I mean, I know its probably hard in that heavy leather suit, with robotic lungs and limbs, but come on dude... if you had picked up the pace just a little bit, you totally could've caught them.

I swear, Star Wars is one of the greatest film franchises ever.. but it has some of the worst villain concepts I've ever seen. Statistically speaking, a stormtrooper should've shot at least 1 important character by now, even if he was aiming for the unimportant character next to them.

I don't think he's capable of running, and besides, walking makes him all the more intimidating. If he wanted to kill them surely he could just choke them from a distance.

There's a popular fan theory going around that the incompetence of the storm troopers is intentional. They're shown to be capable in most other appearances, but when the heroes are around they always shoot wide. I vaguely recall it being because there was a spy amongst the heroes and they were supposed to get away. I don't know. I don't really remember much about the series.

he actually let them get away so he could track them and do this later in the episode...

All jokes aside though, I'm thinking about getting a gaming PC, and RAM is the one aspect I don't fully understand.

If the optimization specs have 16 GBs RAM, and my machine only has 8, but the CPU and GPU are on point.. how much effect would that have?
