    i went from 512 to 1gb and didn't notice much difference. i was expecting a wow thats quicker but nothings really shocked me. could i have done something wrong? - 2x 256 PC2700 generic, 1 x 512 PC2700 Crucial

      I don't think PC2700 is fast enough to make a big difference? I recently upgraded from 512mb of PC3200 to a gig of that and it made a huge increase in performance for me.

        I have PC2700 ram and going from 512 to 1gig made a big difference in loading speed, plus eradicated little hitches you'd get occasionally in-game.

        I have run the ram @ just 266, and @ 333, and I couldn't tell the difference so imo it's the quantity rather than the speed that's important (within reason, obviously not if it's PC100 )

          Ah ok fair enough Maybe it was the mixing of ram that was a disadvantage to Anoobis?

              :haha: :haha: my brothers computer has got 56mb of PC100. needless to say he's getting a new computer for christmas...

              would half generic half crucial. make a difference? i can use up all 1gig (yes i've tried ) so it seems like a speed problem somewhere or something

                :shrug:

                Afaik mixing brands shouldn't make a difference (although having identical sticks is always better I think). Have you got a load of **** running in the background or something.

                  nope i close as much as i can.

                  AMD 2400+
                  Nvidia FX5200 :cry:
                  plenty of hard drive left.

                  Ut2004 isn't my main game (UT>*) so i'm not too worried and i bought memory also for when uni deadlines hit and i have several CAD programs open as well as photoshop and paintshop pro (yes both). obviously having those open and running vaguely smooth the night before a hand in takes a decent hit on the memory

                      Ah hah! Well, there you go. Oh yeah, turn off the Windows Firewall as well. That might do the trick.
                      I disabled norton antivirus and internet security and no difference.
