My current setup:

Asus K8V MoBo
AMD 3000+ 64 bit proc
512 mags of RAM
2 80 gig 7200rmp IDE drives
Asus N6800XT with 256 on board AGP graphics


Need more RAM!

Which should I do?
A: Another 512 to make it a gig.
B: Pull the 512 and put two 1 gig sticks in there and make it 2 gigs.

If option B. What do you reccomend? Link to good deal?

Thanks

Yes, I do game with it.

So Corsair is good? It has been a while since I went out looking at computer components. I started looking this morning and saw Corsair all over the place, but had never heard of it.

crucial ballistics memory is also good memory but i've never tried it in a gaming system.

crucial is what i install in all my customers desktop systems. if its a gaming system its good to have the "heat shield" on the memory to disipate heat.

I hear ya. But if I have been running these games already on a simple unheat shielded stick of 512 and the thing has not caught fire yet, why do I really need them?

Is it a heat issue or a performance issue that you say I need the shields?
