do you think that upgrading from 128 to 384 is enough ram or should i go up to 640? this is w/out video games.. just for regular comp stuff.

RDRAM ey?

Rare and old - but expensive lol


Well I found this lot it may suit your budget, may not - depends what you can afford:

SAMSUNG Original 184-Pin 256MB RAMBUS RDRAM PC-800, Model MR16R1628EG0-CM8 - OEM

Item# N82E16820151102

$179.00 [2x the stick you suggested]


APOLLO nVIDIA GeForce FX5700LE Video Card, 128MB DDR, DVI/TV Out, PCI Model "APV-P5700LE 128M" -RETAIL

$89.00


A processor wouldn't fit in your budget unfortunatley but this should keep you going

Here's a link to Gateway's selection of RDRAM. Since I don't know your systems maximum, I don't know what to recommend, but I doubt you could afford the maximum (if you're like me).

as diablo said just the ram and gfx card won't make it run doom etc. brilliantly - the cpu does play a role
