It could also be that your hard-drive needs a good defragmenting. But more RAM would surely be a good idea. Oblivion and MMO's are the type of games that can really use much RAM. Going from 1 GB to 2 GB did wonders for DDO loading times.
While playing newer games (ie:Oblivion,Auto Assault, DDO) my framerate goes to hell upon occasion and acts like its having difficulty trying to load. I have most, if not all, settings set to the lowest possible in each of these games and yet...
Norton is feard by gamers everywhere and notoriuos for slowing down machines. But if you've got the machine connected to the internet running both an AV and a firewall is a must, othervise you'll end up with load of crap that'll slow you down to a dead stop. You might want to run both Antivirus and spyware scanns to make sure that isn't what is slowing you down, maybe issue a log to the HijackThis forum.
I do like running my norton firewall if I'm playing onlines, but I don't suppose I need AV... do I?
More details of you're computer hardware is really needed. If you got the MB model correct it uses RDRAM which Intel dumped years ago because it is so ridiculously overpriced. Which might not be what you wanted to hear. The good news is that upgrading the RAM is just pop out the old and pop in the new.
I suppose it is a good idea to go to a gig, but I'm not exactly upper class. Actually, I'm like poverty level.
I imagine it would be cheaper to just buy the memory and do it myself if I could. Is installing new mem a hardcore process or is it just a "pop out the old-pop in the new" kinda thing? I'm using Asus' P4T533-C MB I think...

Any way you guys could help me in shutting off the ones I don't need so that I can free up some mem?

Yup, you hit the nail. When your using RIMM's (as you do with RDRAM) you need to fill all slots. We with DIMM modules don't.
"c-rimm" is basicly a stick w/o any memory in it, they put in to fill slots because (surely this isnt needed anymore) supposedly, at least with my MB, you couldnt have any empty memory slots...
apparently ya had ta put something in there.
basically i have four slots, two with real rdram in them, and two with c-rimm fillers...
at least, i think thats what the deal is. maybe most folks call em somthing else, i dunno.
