I have a G5 single processer that has 1 GB of RAM.. When ever I play WOW I only get like 10-20 FPS and it should be like 30-60. If I was to get 3GB of ram total would that help or is it more my graphics card. My G5 is two years old so that could the problem. I also have the settings all low since when they were higher i was just getting 5-10 fps<br><br>achine Name: Power Mac G5<br> Machine Model: PowerMac7,2<br> CPU Type: PowerPC 970 (2.2)<br> Number Of CPUs: 1<br> CPU Speed: 1.8 GHz<br> L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB<br> Memory: 1 GB<br> Bus Speed: 900 MHz<br> Boot ROM Version: 5.1.5f2<br> Chipset Model: GeForce FX 5200<br> Type: Display<br> Bus: AGP<br> Slot: SLOT-1<br> VRAM (Total): 64 MB<br> Vendor: nVIDIA (0x10de)<br> <br><br><br><br>

It appears that there a TWO HERE that would fit the bill. The Radeon 9600 Pro at $185.00 or the Radeon X800 for $380.00. Considering the age of your machine, I'd get the 9600 and then use the extra $ for more RAM.<br><br>
VRAM is video memory, only upgraded by replacing your current AGP video accelerator card. Have a look at OWC for options. Click on the "Video" tab in the upper, right area and then select "Video Display Cards..." for a list of accelerator cards. The "ATI RADEON 9600 PRO" is likely good bang for your buck.<br><br>- alec -
