150gb of ram
asus p5p800 mobo
That sure looks like a screamer, it should handle the sim wide open.
If you have trouble with the textures rendering quickly it will need more ram.
Let us know how you do.
so u whould recommend more ram my mobo can take 4gig and my p4 has 2mb on L2 what make of ram whould be best i have 3 sticks on 512mb kingston atm and i have 1 slot left so whould it be better to get a better make or get some more kingston
Well, one thing, if you have 150GB of ram, you're set for freaking life man! I know you mean 1.5, but it's still darn funny to see.
I would say maybe get 512 more, to set it to 2GB, I've got 2G, and so far, I've found multitasking to be a breeze, by that I mean playing Diablo 2, FS9, and surfing the web all at once. (in case you wonder, you CANT ALT+ENTER Diablo 2, I ALT+ENTER FS9, leave it, and play D2 while I wait, every now and then getting info from the net.)
1.5gb do u recommend a make ?? or is kingston good
Always stay with the same type, it's usually best if you buy it all at one time but Kingston is a good brand. I've used theirs many times.
If you try to get one more chip that is more powerful than the rest all it will do is force itself to run at the speed of the slowest of the bunch. In your case, the other three.
i was thinking of putting 512mb in each of my slots or 4 1gb sticks of samsung mem is samsung a good make as well ?
I never used it, make sure you have a guarantee that will be backed up. If you get 4 gigs you'll be set for the next version and for Windows Vista, good move if you can do it.

i can highly recommend Crucial Ballistix ram.
I use 3 sticks 1gb each,from Kingston and never had problems.Excellent products.
I agree with RadarMan the the best compination is to use the same manufacturer and the same number of gigabytes for each stick.
Although,in an older set up i used i have two 512 stick and one 256 and havent problems but im not suggest it.
Its obvious that i dont have to reffer to the ram clocks which must be the same.Maybe BIOS has the ability to automaticly set it up(or you can manualy set it) to the lower clock that on of your stick is working, but you have some other sticks that you have pay for more and dont get it.
As about your systems specs i think that you will not have any problems running FS in a high level of settings.
