      Depends, run UT3 and have task manager open too, go into the 'performance' tab and check to see how much memory or 'RAM' is being used. if it's barely coping - say you have like 50mb of free memory left than yeah you should consider upgrading. Although if you're only playing UT3 you might want to reconsider.
      Under the perforamce Tab which area covers memory? is it Physical Memory (K) or is it Kernal Memory (K) or sumthing different?

          Oh, and late reply to Epickiller

          I'm good with my 8800gt. Best bang for buck. I replaced 2 7600gt cards in SLI mode with this single 8800gt, and it is way more than twice as strong. Runnin about 40-50 FPS in UT3 VCTF which is cool with me. My 7600gt SLI setup wouldn't do it really playable, and would freeze up. Now I'm playin for hours and hours, and its me that gets tired, not my video card. Cool.
          Gamespot has an article about UT3 and various card specs and tests. It got me on to the 8800gt. http://www.gamespot.com/features/618...result;title;1

            Wasted time is right, it's physical - but don't worry too much about that, just look at the chart (the long bottom one) and if it stays really near the top while playing UT3 I suggest an upgrade. Post a screenshot if you'd like.

                Page file is kind of pseudo-ram. Its really your computer using your hard drive like ram when you don't have enough real ram ta run your application. Your application being UT3 in this discussion. If the page file graph is running high, it means your computer is needin more ram, and is havin ta use your hard disk as ram, and this is not good.
                Page file is not fast enough. ram is way fast.
                Does that make sense to ya?

                  It does, the graph doesnt seem to run too far up the top, and the game seems to run fairly well on 1024 and 3/5 for everything...maybe I dont need that extra ram afterall?
