Hi all,

I'm thinking of a cheap upgrade of another 512Mb of RAM to tide me over until I overhaul the complete system in a few months. I saw a cheap stick for 55, does anyone think this is worthwhile and will I see any difference in PF? I'm asking this as my system is creaking a bit under some of the campaigns/missions in PF http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif


My current system in a nutshell is:

Win XP Pro w. DX9 etc.
Athlon XP1900+
Geforce 4600SE 128Mb
512Mb RAM

Depends on the type of RAM, and also the memory speed (RAM). But for sure you have to notice some difference if you insert one more little card in the groove. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I would put all that money into CPU first,then ram, then Graphics card. The CPU gave me the most bang for the pound.
