Graphics Board Tips--Part 2 of 5
Extra memory means better performance. Does this sound familiar? Of course, this statement is true regarding your PC's RAM, but now it's also true for your graphics board. These days, high-performance graphics boards come with 16MB to 32MB or more of memory. In general, gamers report that you'll notice the improved performance as you upgrade to more memory, even just a jump from 16MB to 32MB. If gaming is your passion, decide if running 32MB of memory on your card is within your budget. Regular business application users don't have to play this upgrade game--they only need 4MB or 8MB on their graphics boards.
