another stick of 1024? yes/no?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have 1GB now... Thinking about getting another so BF2 will run flawless. It runs good now, but I get the random lag spikes here and there.

2GB *SHOULD* help BF2 run great, right?

I'm thinking I just wanna upgrade to 2GB and get it over with, and not spend anymore money on my computer (for now), and Vista is coming next year, so I wanna be ready with 2GB for that.

Any ram suggestions?

For sure. Are you getting another gig to add to what you have now or are you getting all new RAM. I would sugges the latter. What brand is your memory?

If you do decide to get a 2nd stick to add to your current 1GB, be sure it matches speed and timings with your original. Same brand and model would be best in this situation.

Yup, I'm getting the same stick as I did 2 weeks ago...

To think, 2 weeks ago I was on 512mb pc2100 and in a short time, I will have 2GB pc3200... mmmmmm

I don't how how I managed to run on 512mb for such a long time.

A little late to this thread, but for BF2, 2Gs does make a difference. I recently added another gig (value ram tho) and I have no lag at any time. So now maybe my K ratio will get better!
