BF2: More RAM or Graphics Demanding? - Page 2

Ram.

Go for more ram.

Your x1650 and my 7600GT are pretty much on par, and I can max it out smoothly.

I do have an X2, but I'd vote ram.

RAM, definitely. I know I can crank all the settings and keep above 45 FPS but the only problem is when I do, the game stutters BADLY at start because it has to load all the huge files onto my measly 1GB.

Although...

Not real smart getting 2GB of DDR ram now...

I think your best bet would be to get a better GPU now, and hold off on the ram until you can get some DDR2. .. Or even DDR3.

2gb is the best for BF2 and BF2 can't handle 4gb it crashes to the desktop because the next map loads to fast
So if I play BF2 I have to take out 2gb.

6600GT's and up should run it fine on medium to high settings with 2gb of ram, The graphics AND ram both have a large impact IMO...
