i have a : 845ebg2 intel 2.4 2*256 mb pc-2100 memory bfg 6800 gt oc 256 mb video card (new part) audio card: audigy 2 win xp sp1 as is (never figured out which proccessed are neccesery and which not) ok, heres the thing, if i play on high levels (not the highest) i get choppines , now the old cpu isnt hellping of course but what i am asking is what difference will upgrading the memory from 512mb to 1gb or above do, will it help? something i noticed in games is that of all things its the audio that preceeds the coppines, like the annoying orders in bf2 or the characters talking in half life : episode one. will memory help alot or will it be an insignificant change.? what else can i do? by the way: please no "just upgrade you cheap basterd...."
