Advice please.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have recently started playing Age of Conan and am planning to upgrade a lil to increase performance. However i can not decide which to upgrade, either another 2gig or maybe 4 of ram or getting a 3850 512mb.

I dont know enough to decide which will give me the best increase so am hoping someone can advise.

Thanks.

The video card will be the biggest upgrade, the ram would be minimal since the games doesn't use near the 2GB you have installed.

Go for the 3850

3850 or even 3870 is a MUCH wiser choice. I went from an X1950Pro to my new 3870 and doubled my performance I LOVE IT!
