Get the 6600GT first. Then get the RAM. The video card makes the most difference in performance in these days. If you are playing BF2 though, you will want to get that extra RAM soon after the video card.

No need to be rude.

Go for the card fist, then the RAM, like Hogg said.

The graphics card will be the bggest investment, so it's best to get it while you have the cash on hand, as the money has a way of evaporating...
