Default Add another stick of 512?

I got an Emachine (look at sig) and was considering blowing my $60 BB GC on another stick of 512 RAM, but i don't know if it's worth it since i could just as well buy a copy of NBA Ballers and have $5 left over. I do heavy video editing periodically and some photo/audio editing occasionally (less so than video) if that makes any difference. Also got an ATI TV Wonder VE that i use (PCI) which slugs my AMD a little. Otherwise pretty stock

Depends, 66 dollars isnt going to get you a quality stick of ram, and going from 512 to 1024 isnt going to make a HUGE difference. I would get NBA ballers if i were you since its probably going to be more fun than having 40 windows open instead of 30 in XP

I'd personally upgrade the video card to a Radeon 9200/9600

alright, cool, thanx. I don't do much/any 3d gaming so an ok graphix card is satisfactory. Will probly get Ballers before next week
