I have:
-3.00ghz p4
-geforce 6200 (agp) VERY overclocked
-512mb ram

and so far, the game runs at 18fps at lowest settings at lowest resolution.

I am thinking about either getting 2GB ram OR a 7600gt. They both cost around the same. but which one would increase the performance better?

I'd go for the 2gig RAM first, then update your graphics card.

You are better off wating for a graphics card, since they are too expensive, but will drop in price. For instance, the GF 8800.

I can't really do that.. my mobo has agp not pci-e. 7800 is the best you can get for agp. ati cards don't fit in my motherboard for some reason.
But i also found a 256mb 7800gs in the same price range! how 'bout that?
and does memory affect performance in just cause that much?

2GB RAM should be the minimual. You are better off looking for a new mb, you'll need a new one soon enough.:rasp:
