I dont know much about a good computer hardware stuff for running games or in other words, video cards, ram, sound cards, and other stuff like that.

qeustions:

1) Is the higher the ram the better your gaming performance is?
2) What video card could handle all games but is not too high of price?
3) Is the more video cards you have in your mother board the better it is at gaming?
4) What is the most important hardware to run a game?
5) (none realated question) Is a ATI Radeon 9250 128mb any good?
^5) If not what would be good around its retail?[/i]

Answers:

1) Yes. i recomend 512 or more if you want to be a gamer

2) RADEON 9600 128MB Or nVidia GeForce FX 5600 Both Cards Run from 40 to 60$. They run with all the games todate With hi settings (But you Should at least Get the nVidia GeForce FX 5900XT 128mb ($115).

3) The max amount Of Video Cards you can have in MotherBoard Is two. (SLI & CrossFire MotherBoards) and it depends on what cards you have in them. but yes two is better than one :lol: (could someone explain this better?)

4) I wouldnt buy the ATI Radeon 9250 128mb. get a better card. (lol that card sux for Gaming) for that price get the GeForce4 MX 440 128MB

i recomended 3 cards but they'll all play better than that Radeon 9250.

But really get this card if you have AGP:

also do you have AGP or PCI-e?
(or do you run your card through a PCI slot?

Whats your computer specs?

That card has problems on guild wars (which after building or buying a computer a computer I'm willing to buy). Radeon 9000 or higher is recommended. Is this because they programmed the game to work better for radeon because more people use it?

You can have more than 2 vid cards in a machine, you will have to use PCI cards cause I have never seen a board with more than 2 AGP or PCI-X slots, but you can run more than 2 cards.

No you can run more than two I have built computers with support for 6 monitors (which required 3 vid cards). It is done all the time and really is easy to do with the right cards. You freaking moron.

your "yer a smart one! " comment offended me,

I don't mind if you thought I was wrong and you pointing it out, but don't be insulting, I was not insulting when I pointed out your error, we are all here to share what knowledge we have to help others, everyone isn't going to be correct about everything but don't insult people.
