Hey Guys I've got this PC:

ECS 8200a motherboard

AMD Athlon 64 x2 250

2 GB ram ddr2

Had a nvidia geforce 9500 gt but sold it and ordered a geforce 440 ddr3


I was thinking of getting more ram like 4 gb or 8 gb but I think its pointless buying ddr2 ram since its getting old and they're alot more expensive than ddr3,so i decided to upgrade my motherboard so I can buy 8 gb ddr3 for 50 bucks and replace my athlon x2 for a phenom 2 x4,Would I see Huge difference between the PC I got now and the one I'm planing to buy...I use my PC mostly For gaming like world of warcraft,Gta IV,devil may cry 4 Etc

Thank you guys :)

What speed is your RAM running at?
Either way, I think you'll see improvement.
Make sure you have a 64bit OS, otherwise your 8 GB of RAM will be useless.

As long as you have a 64bit OS, I'd say it'd be worth it.
I can't speak from experience though.
