Ok i have been getting into half life 2 and I am playing it fine on medium settings, but on some parts where i am shooting it kind of lags. Also when I turn around too fast it lags. I have a decent system but i want to upgrade to help me run it better. My question is should I buy an other 512 stick of ram to make it 1 gig total, or should i get a new motherboard sine the one i have now only supports agp 4x for my 8x 6600. This would be the motherboard I would get:
This oen has nf2 ultra and it supports agp 8x and dual channel ram. My mobo now has single channel ram and has a weak km266 chipset and it has only agp 2x/4x. My sempron will only go 100mhz overlcoked because of the mobo. I would like to get it higher. So my question is would i be better off getting the ram to help me play hl2 better? Or would I be better off getting the motherboard to help my vidcard run at 8x and to help overclock my cpu?
I am leaning towards the ram because many times peopel have told me that the 4x isn't really holding back my videocard. so what should I buy? Also whatever i buy i want it to help me play hl2 better wiht less lag.
