Would a am2 4000+ slow me down when gaming with 1GB DDR2 667MHz and a 7900gs? Would I be fine or should I get a better cpu?

You should be alright with it. It's listing for $60 @ Newegg, so go for it. If anything it'll only speed you up depending on what you're comparing it to right now.

Quite a bit. The jump from 1 to 2 is where most people see their difference. If you'll look around at sigs, most here are running 2Gigs. That's the sweet spot for XP.

Wrong, after 1 GB the difference isn't that much compared to going from 512 MB to 1024 mb.

Is that so? Some guy is selling brand new Buffalo Select Memory for $30. Would it be worth the upgrade? http://img123.imageshack.us/my.php?i...ne12007it6.jpg

Fine, I'll rephrase - it's where I saw most of MY difference.

Preferably an up to 2x1G where as 4 modules are less friendly with the controler and will default to a 2T CPC.
The extra volume will improve load times with some games like BF2 which cache a lot of textures. When I had 2x512s, the people with 2x1G of ram left incertion point several seconds before me.

Truth be told 2gb will be better. Obviously. While you may not notice it outright, its the little things that it will help. Not to mention games with large maps and lots of players (BF2142 things like that)
'bout time.

Damn Duke loving the Avatar.

And the X2 4000+ will be fine in most games of today, at the moment games tend to be more GPU and RAM intensive than on the CPU at the moment.

As long as the CPU is above a half decent P4 your set in most games.
