I'm considering purchasing an additional 1GB memory stick which would give me a total of 2GB -- this is primarily due to the fact that my frames in BF2142 are not at where I would like them to be.
I currently have 2 x 512MB PC3200 Corsair DDR DIMM's in dual channel
My question is, if I buy a 1GB DIMM of PC3200 DDR, will my BIOS/Mobo get mad and screw up the dual channel?
My motherboard is ASUS P4C800-E.
The bigger picture of things: I currently don't have the money to buy the super gaming system that I'd like.
I cannot upgrade my video card (ATi x800 XT PE) because my motherboard doesn't have PCI-e slots, and my CPU is still quite decent (Intel 3.2GHz P4 w/ HT and 1MB L2 Cache). So I was thinking a much needed memory upgrade would solve some of the performance hits I've suffered in newer games like BF2142.
So if a memory upgrade would work with the above question, do you think its the right choice until I have the money for a whole new rig?
Thanks for reading
