Hi!

I don't have SWG at the moment cause it isn't released yet in the UK... but i was just woundering what computer component i have to upgrade to get a higher RAM, at the moment i 256Mb which doesn't get me very fair on speed!

Also i'm thinking of getting a new video card, anyone got recommendations, 256mb min but i don't really want to spend any more than 125 ($200)

Any help is greatly appreciated

well to upgrade ur RAM simply find out the type of RAM ur currently using, and then buy the exact same kind of RAM. u can find this out by contacting ur computer company or opening ur computer to actually look at your RAM. OR better yet (i just remembered this) go to www.crucial.com and they should be able to match what RAM u need exactly.

as for the video card. go to www.pricewatch.com for good prices. and before u buy anything go to http://www.geforcezone.com/ and ask around the forums there. people at that site know a lot about that stuff and can help u a ton.

You need to make sure you have room for more ram. Do you have 2 sticks of 128mg? if so take them both out and get 2 sticks of 256. If you just ahve one stick of 256 and you have 2 ram slots in your mobo. Which you most likely do then just get one more stick of 256. Although 1 stick of 512 is actually better. Then keep your 256 mg just in case you need a spare.

A 256mg video card? A 128mg card will play any game out today and for the next several years. Newegg.com has some great prices and great service for hardware as does Googlegear.com

Look for a Leadtek card. I have had numerous and they are very nice and have great features. A ti4400 or Ti4600 are both very nice cards and are under the $200 mark yet will perform great.

Anandtech.com is one of the best reveiw sites and forums for all thing computer.

Go look around there and ask question.
