Im thinking of upgrading from 512 RAM to 1024 RAM but Im not sure if it is worth it. Will I see a difference?
A night and day difference. I play Fh mod for BF1942. The map Prokhorovka used to take forever to load. By switching to 1024MB the map loads 5x faster than it used to and gameplay is much smoother.
The more RAM the more of the games files can be loaded into fast memory instead of the game having to retrieve needed info from the slow HDD. This reduces waiting or lag as the game doesnt have to stop and retrieve data as often. Also you didnt not mention your OS so Im assuming you have WinXP or Win 2000. Both love as much memory as you can throw at them.
2gigs is overkill you really dont need that much too often. And yes you would see a big differnce with an extra 512mb. You really need 1gig of ram these days for gaming.
its definately worth it. i have 1gig of ram whereas all of my friends have 512 and my games load at least twice as fast as theres.
HL2, Doom3, UT2K4, FarCry, all these next generation games tho can be played on 512, will play better with 1gig, IMO its worth it.
These are my specs will I see a difference if I upgrade to about 1 Gig? 3.0 Ghz P4 800 Mhz FSB 80 GB 7,500 RPM HDD 512 MB DDR (2x 256 Mb) ATI Radeon 9600 XT 128 MB DDR
these are my specs, how much of a difference would i see? 384mb ram to 1gb 1.1ghz celeron to 2.17 athlon xp 2700+ heh... more than a night and day?
Col. Homer Gonersonthese are my specs, how much of a difference would i see? 384mb ram to 1gb 1.1ghz celeron to 2.17 athlon xp 2700+ heh... more than a night and day?
yeah your going to see a big improvement, i dont even think your old specs could pay the new generation of games.
Probably, you should REALLY consider ditching the celeron and getting just a plain old P4... There not that expensive anymore...
