Hello , I had an 9600gt and i'ved upgraded my system to a AMD RADEON hd 7770 and i dont quite seem to notice to many changes.
My proc is Core2duo e7400 2.8ghz
4gb ram ddr3 1333mhz (going to 8gb ram tomorrow)
PSU 500w
MB Asrock g41m vs3 2.0
And one more guestion , if u i wanna buy a new MB how do i figure out if i can put dual sided RAM memory in it ? cause on my MB dual sided memory is the only memory that works

No, it probably wouldn't do much for games. Also, your CPU is pretty outdated.

Also, what do you mean when you say that you don't see many differences?

I'm assuming he means dual-channel memory. To check this, look in the motherboard's manual, which is available on the motherboard's website.

The dual-sided memory has circuits on each part of the memory. Yesterday i was interesed on buying a 4gb memory stick (same brand as my 4gb stick which is installed on my pc). After i bought it and installed it into my pc it didn't work so i bringed my pc to the shop i bought the memory from and tested out 5 more memory sticks.
After a while i noticed that thier memory were single sided and mine was double (circuits on the both side) and they brought me a 1gb double-sided memory stick and it worked , so my MB supports only dual(double)-sided memory sticks.

No , it's double sided memory
Here are some examples:http://www.emag.ro/memorii/filter/cipuri-memorie-f143,d...


go to www.pcpartpicker.com and select your motherboard, ram, CPU, GPU etc. It will notify you if it isn't compatible with each other.

+ it's probably your CPU that's bottlenecking your GPU. or it might be your monitor? does it allow a decent FPS? atleast 60hz.

Upgrading your ram is always fine but i'm pretty sure it won't improve your performance at all.

Oke then it isn't your monitor, I would look into the CPU.
+ it's a decent upgrade, but still not a very high end GPU so don't expect too much on the latest games.
