    What do you use your PC for? What type of use is the performance a problem for? What are the details of your system: CPU? hard drive(s)? graphics board? What is your budget?
  2. Are you an OCer??

  4. People have reported better performance in BF2 w/2GB RAM. Also, your current system is likely not running in dual-channel mode -- if so, running in dual-channel mode at DDR2-533 will be more than enough throughput to saturate the 800MHz FSB of your CPU.
    Thus, I would:
    1) Sell you current memory on ebay
    2) Buy 2x 1GB (or 4x 512MB if it's a *lot* cheaper) DDR2-533 or better (but run at DDR2-533 speed on your board).
