Double my memory?
I currently got 128 MB PC-100 RAM, and I Wanna put in another 128 MB PC-100 (Putting me @ 256 obviously)

Here are my Specs :
P2 450Mhz
8 MB STB nVidia 128 Velocity (I can play Q3 @ 800X600 smoothly, so its not as bad as it sounds, but yes, it is still pretty crappy)
Win98 (1st Edition)

Will I see the difference if I double my RAM?
I play games like Q3, UT, Rainbow 6, Deus Ex, GTA 2, NHL 2001, etc.
I obvioulsy do a lot of multitasking too...

Do u think I should upgrade?
Thx.

I think you could definitely see a performance increase by moving to 256 RAM. It would sure help for multitasking, and there is a good chance that it would help for game performance, as most current games like to load as much as they can into RAM. Adding more RAM would allow the computer to use the SWAP file less, therefore speeding up the system.
