Exclamation 2gb Dual Channel RAM

hi,

at the moment i have an Intel P4 LGA775 3.0GHz running at 3.15GHz, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro and only 512mb RAM. i was wondering if upgrading 1gb or 2gb of PC3200 Dual Channel RAM will help performance in games a lot and if there is much difference between 1gb and 2gb dual channel ?

Thanks

Really depends what games you play. If you play anything better then Battlefeild 1942 it will help, battlefeild tents to use 700-800mb so having 1GB would be good. But in the new games like Battlefeild 2 and F.E.A.R 2GB is becoming the recommended amount.

Dude do u know what u get in 3D Mark 03? (i have basically the same CPU and Card.)

Welcome to the forums.
