Default What upgrades for my computer should I get?

Im fine with my Geforce 7600 for now, these are my computer specs:

AMD Athlon 64 processor 3500+ (2.20GHz)
1024MB Ram PC2 - 4200 DDR2
200GB hard drive

I was thinking of getting more RAM but how much more?

More ram, would be great, you could also possibly upgrade the processor to a dual core.

Yeah, getting more RAM would improve Windows performance alot. If you play alot of RTS games you should also consider a dual core. The AMD 64 X2 series would suit you fine and you can pick up a 4200+ X2 for like $79
