I would have to say the 2 gb kit becuase it looks like you have crossfire(correct me if im wrong) but even if you don't I think BF2 will like the ram better than a small vid card upgrade.

I guess... I don't play BF so I cant tell whether you need ram or Video more.

I owuld say video card, but soon with dx10 games around the corner expect the need for 2gb to keep graphics up.

I'd say neither, I don't really see what's wrong with what you have. Why not save your money, instead of having the biggest and baddest stuff?

I'd say the video card. That card you have might struggle a tad, with 1680x1050. Cause you have to run all your games at that resolution now lol.

So, video card...get ram as soon as possible after, though.

I think your videocard is still decent for now, and besides, DX10 is just around the corner.

The only thing really lacking now is the ram, get the 2 gig while you can.
