AA = Anti liasing.
Nothing wrong with a constant 50-90FPS.If that's right then the game should be playing smoothly.
Are you Vista or xp?And what processor do you have?
If your motherboard is sli enabled then you can run two 8600gt's together.

To be honest I have just played COD4 with my settings down to the lowest and it made it worse my FPS was down to 50-90 constant.

I will be ordering some new memory asap but do you guys think a new GFX card in my price range is also a good idea.

do you think if i add another GFX card it would solve the problem and if i do would i have to add the GFX card as I have now.

Also would some more memory help, I have 1gb now but was thinking of upgrading to 2gb.
