    i have an amd 2600 with a geforce 5600 with 256 mb ram

    when i play far cry it places me on medium settings, the game runns smooth for ht emost part but inside sometime the frame rate goes real slow

    i have 512 ddr ram,

    question is, if i get some more ram will it improve the game play?

    no not really its really the video card....

    i have fx5600 128mb and i can play on medium settings i think the problem with urz might be because fx5600 256mb is worse than the 128mb version...

    They key to gaming is having 1. A good video card 2. RAM - and lots of it. I&#39;d say 768mb at minimum.

    Try following the msconfig and services.msc, and defragment part of my guide (link to it in sig).

    hope that helps you, you shouldn&#39;t need to buy a new graphics card, the one you have is just fine, all your specs are fine.

    I have 768Mb and its useful for quick loading times and no stuttering at the beginning of a map/game, but I reckon its mainly your video card holding it back. 9800&#39;s are still good cards and are quite cheap these days, go for a pro if you can.
