Well..after checking out a few things out..and I ended up getting the GeForce 6800GT Overclocked card opposed to the X800XL...for 2 reasons..The XL was PCI-Express(I have AGP) and I heard it sucked from the guy i got it off of compared to the 6800GTOC. Although it was a 100 dollars more..its deffinately worth it..I can run americas army on the highest settings, and it runs beauitifully with no video lag. Thanks a lot guys for your help.

I actually had 1 stick of 512, but 3 slots. So insted of getting a double upgrade to a gig, i went with 3 sticks of 512 which is awsome.

Kewl I'm glad you enjoy that card, the 6800GT is a great card, especially if you overclock it or if its pre-clocked. If its BFG or something that auto overclocks it, you could probably even push it a bit more if you wanted using Coolbits, though be careful.

You probably wouldn't have to bother though
