Right now i have 512 RAM and an ATI radeon 9550 graphics card and when i play WoW (the game i play most) i lag really bad at certain aspects of the game (like when i enter shattrath). Is improving the amount of ram i have more important or the graphics card? If its the graphics card, can anyone recommend me a good AGP graphics card (no pci-e slot on motherboard) that will allow me to play WoW at good FPS? (i heard the x1950 pro is not a good card for WoW). Thanks
I'd recommend upgrading both, personally. The GPU may increase your FPS some, but the jump from 512MB to 1GB of RAM is quite noticeable in XP.
If it is indeed plain DDR RAM (not DDR2) then I wouldn't recommend spending the extra money on old RAM. As IH8U stated, it's getting more expensive, and it would make no sense if you upgraded your motherboard down the road. (esp. since I can't think of any new motherboards that still support DDR)
