I play Counter-Strike: Condition Zero alot on my computer but it has very low FPS(24 Max), I know it's because my RAM is only 224 MB (I know you can only get 256 MB but my computer says its 224 MB). I want to get another 512 MB Stick but my friend says it could be my Graphics Card thats giving me low FPS, I have $100 to spend on my computer what do you guys think I should do.

You might have a graphics card that shares RAM memory, which would account for the 32K difference in your RAM. For most games with high graphics, 32K for Video Memory is not adequate. If there are user preferences in the game, you can try adjusting these for "best performance."

I don't know how many MB my graphics card is but I think its a Uni-chrome IGP (What ever that is :thumbsup: ) I was thinking that if I get a graphics card I may not have enough RAM to run it.

The issue about getting a new video card would be compatibitilty and not your current amount of RAM (this may turn out to be a secondary consideration). You might want to start a new thread in the hardware forum for advice on this; you will need your computer brand, model, and motherboard information, as I remember.
