    cheers guys , yeah i followed the xp tweak guide

    my vram is on my S drive (a 60 gig partition on my 7200rpm drive) where i only store user files, so it should have minimal read/write except that page file

    u know man thats the only thing that i haven't changed on my pc for ages, is my pc2100 ram.... just looking around for some of the good stuff! thanks for the suggestion

    gonna find something sweet on overclockers.co.uk i think.. i'm in the UK

    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Corsair_XMS.html

    i just got the Corsair 512MB DDR XMS3200LLPT TwinX (2x256MB) Platinum CAS2 (MY-017-CS)

    lets hope this works...

    although i have been looking into the specs of my vid card, and it seems its way under the standard for a 5600... like 8.6 gb/sec where its supposed to be 10 a sec

    and the vertex is lower as well

    maybe i won't get a card from the same company again, its really unstable in overclocking as well, like its a cheap solution

    Everyone that use to be regulars at tweak town knows that your video card is the problem...a geforce4 can kill your 5600.

    Use the search tool in the forums..many people critized the 5600 for the lack of fire power it supposely had before its release date.

    damnit :(

    well man there is the proof, research your purchases better

    i was just got by the need one day and went to maplins and bought the 5600 for 140 quid (about 200 usd) and i admit it didnt run much better than my geforce 3 ti 200, i put it down to the mainboard, and invested heavily in upgrading everything except the ram

    now i see that was a bad decision,

    so i need a 5900 ultra looks like?? man what a waste of money :(

    Personally I wouldn't check out THG...their reviews are known to be biased
