Windows XP home edition
512ram
Nvidia Geforce FX5200 PCI
DirectX 9.0c
Intel Celeron
2.20ghz CPU

Now my settings in game are...

Driver: OpenGL
Resolution: 1024x768 (16bit)


Visibility: Medium
Obects lighting: Medium
Object Detail: Excellent
Landscape Lighting: Medium
Landscape Detail: Medium
Cloud Detail: Medium Clouds (I dont notice the difference)

And my sound is maxed out.


Now what if I change my resolution to 1280x960 (16bit)
Object Lighting: High
And then I change my sound quality too 22050 and then my playback channels to 16.

will this increase the performance of the game or, decrease it or stay the same?

Try it and see, all anyone else can do is make a guess. You would notice a big boost with another 512k stik of ram though. S!
