Other than the attitude, the advice is appreciated. How much ram would be good? The reason I'm thinking it wasnt the ram is because my friend on this nforce2 with 256megs, a r9500pro and a slower 2100+ cpu doesnt stutter, just when the level initally loads. And he definitely gets more than 40-50 fps idle.
