whether you need an upgrade is all dependent on what kind of applications you use on your computer. your ram and videocard should be able to support most games on regular settings.

hmmm...well are ur 2 512's exactly the same (RAM sticks)???

edit: becasue if so u can do dual channel which is like changing ur current one lane highway to a two lane highway...so it will go faster...now i don't know if it would beat ur current 1.5gb's...but it may run faster...also i would maybe suggest a new mobo down the road...mainly because u could get pcix16 slots...
