Updating

I want to update my computer, to get better frame rates. I have a Nvidia GeForce 4000 128MB video card and 512MB of RAM. Should I get a new video card or more memory?

Chris,
What about the rest of your specs?

CPU speed?

doubling the memory to 1024 would really help, but in your case, a better video card would make the most difference.

My first move would be a better video card. Then, if you can afford it, I would go for another 512 mb stick of memory too.

I think you would get more noticeable improvement with the video card.

Others may have differing suggestions, but that is the way I would go.

All depends on how much you want to spend really.
