Sorry i dont know much about the inner workings of my p.c however i have noticed recently that some of my newest games/ applications have started to get a little slow
i defraged my hard drive updated my drivers which provided a little improvement but i think i may need a faster graphics card or perhaps a memory upgrade.
pm present graphics card is about a year old
its an x1300 pci express with 256 of on board memory
i have 2 gig of ram running at 533mhz
i was hopping to upgrade for between £150.00- £200.00 do you think would i get a marked improvement by improving either of these
my main proccesor is an intel core 2 6600 @ 2.4

but according to these charts the x1300 is fairly low down. click here

Pick a card you are interested in and then the game to see how it compares.

Bit late adding to this but with 2 gig of RAM you will not see the difference adding more.
A new graphics card and a bit of housekeeping seems to be in order.
