I would like to put more ram into my pc as well, however, i have a few questions. I have 512 MB of PC2700 DDR -133 SDRAM. It has one more slot available to insert a 512 MB for a total maximum of 1 GB of RAM. I would just like to know if it would help improve the performance of the games I play on my system. I have an AMD Athlon 2.2 GHz, 512 MB of RAM, 160 GB hardrive, an Xtasy Visiontek 128 MB 9200 se video card (its the same as the ATI Radeon 9200 except its a newer and more current card and its manufactured by a different company). My graphics card is capable of running most games at high resolutions like 800 x 600 or 1024x768 and with most settings at a medium and sometimes high. But, on games like Psychonauts, Far Cry, The Chronicles Of Riddick, DOOM 3, Brothers In Arms, etc. things start to chug when there is a lot on screen. The framerate drops considerably, so I am forced to turn the resolution to a lower 800 x 600 or sometimes even 640 x 480. Now, what i find strange, is that Half - Life 2 runs perfectly for me at 800 x 600 and with Texture detail and model detail set at high and with all the other settings set at a medium or high setting. If i bought 512 mb more ram would that make most of my games run smoother at higher graphic settings?
Thanks in advance
