with an agp slot and I threw my current video card in there. Should I expect a significant performance improvement in my gaming(racing only)...as it stands with my current system I get a nice 32 fps average except in a couple spots in GTR2 with everything turned up high and draw distance far. The only thing I cant turn on is shadows or I lose like 5 solid fps. So I was wondering if that would do the trick and then eventually get a 512 card. Or if I'm not going to be able to turn the shadows on without a 512 card at all? I'm sure upgrading to a whole new system is obviously the best option, but it's not the best option for me right now as I just bought the card and the ram I have(which b.t.w. is all my mobo will take)
4GB of ram, what OS you running. I believe XP only will recognize up to 3GB if I'm not mistaken. Thats also kind of dumb because it rapes your dual channel setups.
for Dual channel your a1 + a2 = b1 + b2 (slots) and it works best if you have all the same chips. so you have 4 slots, that means 2 GB (4x 512MB or 2x 1GB) but then 3GB is dual channel is just dumb because its like an odd number in it all
