What to upgrade Vid Card or RAM?

#1
Currently I have 256 RAM and a NVidia GForce 2 MX400 - 64MB Video card.

To improve game performance should I increase RAM to 512 or get a 128MB Vid Card, if I can't do both.


thanks

If you could in any way do both... do it.

But your best bet is to upgrade the VID Card.

Games will still be CPU intensive but with a current (new generation) VID Card it will deffinately help quite a bit.

For future refference...

Please post your question in ONE thread only...

Multiple thread posts with the same question will be merged. As obviously this one has.

Thank You... :cool:

We now return you to your regularly scheduled broadcast still in progress. :happy:

Well, you see, in order to run games smoothly, I believe that you need a lot of video card RAM, and a lot of system RAM.

I suppose getting something like a 9700, or Nvidia 4600, 4400 128MB cards will give you one hell of a kick in graphics performance, but, while running a game, you will need to insure that you have a very limited amount of programs running in the background, the less the better, otherwise, you're going to experience slowdown, and more.

If you're willing, go with a newer graphics card. However, it would be much better, to go with both.

I'd go for more RAM mate. I have a 8500 not latest but certainly not a shaby card, anyway when playing stuff like UT2003 and more graphic intensive games i wish i had more RAM, an extra 256 RAM would make a heck of a difference.
