    when i first get into a game like half life 2 or battlefield 2 it has to load everything so its really laggy. i turn corners and it loads. an example in battlefield when i first spawn i have to look around a lot to get rid of the lag. afater playing for while i have no lag at all and it runs perfectly. my gaphics aren't maxed out because if i put them higher than medium the game will have to load for a longer time. im wondering if more ram would help this cuz im going to have a gig soon.

    when i mean load i dont mean loading to play.

    For those games yes I would say its your RAM and not your GFX card BF2 especially as it precaches EVERYTHING so the more system RAM you have the better 1 gig will certainly help both those games out.(even with a Gig BF2 wont be perfectly smooth at High settings)
