hi all..im thinking of upgrading my pc for games..i have a 2.20ghz celeron,XP home edition, 256mb ram..and a sparkle geforce4 mx440 agp 128mb..to get better performance with games like call of duty..would i be better off buying more ram...or upgrading my grfx card to a PNY geforce fx5500 128mb for £60?...which would give me the best results quickest?
The first priority is your graphics card spend as much as you can as if you had say a FX 5500 with 1GB of RAM it would be outperformed by a FX 5700 with 512MB of RAM.
RAM will help with loading times but unless you are in the upper range of cards then 512MB is fine spend as much as you can on a graphics card and get to 512MB RAM WHICH IS PLENTY for games as without spending £150+ on graphics card you will be playing with lower setting anyway so it wont especially with you cpu make any difference noticable to you.
thnx for all the help guys...grabbed the fx5700...made a big difference...but think ure right about the ram...gonna grab 1gb asap...any ideas on what i should be paying for that...and the best place to get it from?
