my system; 1.0 ghz p3, 256sdr(100), (msi) nv gf4 mx440
i know i have a poooor system and somewhat obsolete graphic card(but this card did all what i write below)
played hl2, far cry pretty nice on med settings. played doom3 on low settings everything off(obviously) with choppy performance. nfsu2 was smooth. however, riddick is completely frustrating, (choppy) x 3 and unplayable. now, the big question.
i have only two options with me; buy ati9600pro or increase ram to 512 or at best i can try both. nothing more than this. what should i do? will this proposed upgrade make a difference? should i stick to mx440 and add some more ram? pl focus on only these options; my budget doesnot allow x..series cards or latest amd processors. however, i was thinking to upgrading to p4 and 512ddr(266) but in autumn(may be).
suggestions wil be valued greatly.
p.s. hl2 was a better game than ridick and doom3 with equal or better graphics. then why...............?
