RAM & Frame rates

Hope someone can help. Currently my PC seems to be running at reduced frame rates (depending on what type of aircraft I use). I use FSX with most of WOAI installed. I also have Just flights 757, 737 & Volume 1 Airbus series.

I currently have 1gb of RAM, if I increased this to 4gb would I see alot of improvement. I also have a Nvidia 8500 GT, if I upgraded this would this improve my performance?

My c drive on my PC has 200gb of memory, I also have an Intel 4 machine.

I am more interested in the RAM, if it is worth my while or not?

Thanks for any help.

You have a low CPU and an older video card. Both of those plus the AI will slow down FSX.
That machine would be fine for 2004.

Hi 1gig of ram is not really enough, 2gig minimium.
I have 3gig with a p4 processer and i saw a big improvement when i upgraded from 1gig.
If you have vista like i do then 3 gig min.
Ram is cheap now so it is worth it.

Thanks for that, I thought that the RAM would not have that much affect, but there is no harm in upgrading to 4gig.

Certain add-ons may affect frames to, such as my captainsim 757, my pc runs fsx perfect in everyway, but i use that 757 and danm man it slows down like you woulden't believe.
