    Question Would more RAM benefit me?

    See my sig for specs of my system. I'm just wondering if I will benefit from more RAM. I ask because after I play games like WarCraft 3 and Tribes 2, upon first opening things like Internet Explorer and other programs, they don't open as smoothly as they would on a fresh bootup. Would more RAM help to eliminate that "stall" in opening programs?

    I had to make the choice between 256 or 512. After some reading on this board, I decided to be safe and go the 512mb route since I do game and such.

    512mb certainly wouldn't hurt

    The best choice is to use 512.

    if you have windows tweaked it should be ok for now ,but if you can afford it i say buy a 512mb stick and sell the 256mb or use them both.
