What to upgrade?


Recommended Posts

Help tech guys!

I have 1.25GB RAM and a 6600 sli ready

Do I:

1.) Upgrade RAM to 2x 1GB

or

2.) Upgrade card (buy a 2nd 6600 / another card)

Which will give me the "best bang for the buck"???

Of those alternatives the other Gfx card is the best choice. That is, if GRAW or even general gaming is the reason for the upgrade.

Yeah, its for GRAW/general gaming...and I know they are both relatively inexpensive, but I don't want to go crazy just yet.

Graphics card. :shifty: I already tried the 2gb vs 1gb of ram and load times seemed a little quicker but gameplay seemed the same.

Please lie to me, I bought 1 gb RAM extra for a total of 2gb RAM this very day.

<_<

I'll lie if it will make you feel better. :P Both of my sets are Corsair XMS and the only difference is the 1gb set has better timings than the 2gb set. Sorry! Most tests I've read mention a dramatic increase in performance going from 512 ram to 1gb ram but only a slight improvement in some instances from 1gb to 2gb. Edited by KRP 56
