Both sticks are PC2700. I know what latency is, and my CPU-Z says that one has 2.0 and another has 2.5. I understand the relevance, but not the reason. if i'm clogging this thread with a space consuming conversation, please let me know.

Hello all; obviously, i'm new here.
Down to buisness:

I'm looking for advice on upgrades that will allow me to play more recent games; HL2 works fine on mostly high settings, but BF2 refuses to work; thus, i beleive i'm starting to fall behind.

Since you're new? welcome to Tech-Fourms eh?

Anywho, this ain't your fault, it's DICE's. BF2 suffers from lack of compatibility with a lot of vidcards. If you cheir their official list, it's pretty much "have a ATI Radeon 9000 and up, or an x200 and up, or a geforce fx and up, or a geforce 6000 and up or you can't play the game." So it's a kick in the teeth eh?

All you really need is a new vidcard. There's a lot out there. the 6600GT is a forum favorite, but if you wanna save a few bucks the ati radeon 9800 pro's pretty good too. the 9800 pro's more of a budget vidcard between those 2, but it'll play games like bf2 very nicely.

If those are too expensive? a ATI Radeon 9600 Pro or an Geforce FX5700 (not LE, they suck) will also play the game.

If you have a big-big budget (ya lucky rich buggers, lol) you could always get a Geforce 6800GT (I would also say the ATI Radeon x850 series are good too.. but they're overpriced.. dangit ATI, what happened to ya? you crapped out on your PCIE lineup...).
Later-A-Much, and LONG LIVE THE D!

serious question here cuz i just wondered, so dont like flame me or anything.

but why would people care what others pc specs are? i mean i dont get the point really...to feel envy/brag or what?
and if its bragging rights on your hard work and money thats fine but why would someone else care especially since they cant see it in action?

Another good reason is to see what kindof system specs others have. Ya know? so if you're buying a comp, and you see like, 10 people or more on this forum using a certain cpu like an AMD Athlon64 3200+ venice core, and they are plenty happy, don't you think you'd feel like you're getting quality parts?

Soon I'm gonna be getting a 6600gt. A rare one, it's an apollo 6600gt. Pretty interesting look onnit, looks like an old gf4 ti series vidcard, but it ain't. I've seen pics and how it preforms, looks plenty good to me.

that's a review, card looks like it comes with some good stuff, just need to put on some decent thermal paste is all really. One thing I like about this review is it shows some OCing mixed in. Note how much more a prefromance gain is with ocing the cpu over the vidcard, interesting stuff eh?
