Well the thing is that old (old old old xD) video cards might not support smaller resolutions than 1024x768 so that's why I sad to get newer graphic card.God you're clueless.
Different monitors support different resolutions, 1024*768, 1280*1024, etc. It's completely up to the user to pick the resolution they want, and higher resolution doesn't give you high resolution textures. Resolution refers to the number of pixels on the screen, more pixels means a sharper image.
Ram makes a difference in loadtime, and overall performance. If you only have 256mb, and you load say moradon, then EMC, then eslant, then CZ...all the areas are loaded on your PC, making it alot slower. 512 is ideal, where 1gb WILL give best performance. Speed of ram is not important, as long as its at least DDR.
Video card is NOT as important as CPU for a game such as Knight Online. This games graphics are very limited and doesn't use any fancy directx features the newer games and video cards support. As long as the video card is not intergrated, and is something within the last 4 years it will be sufficient. 80% of this game is CPU, 10% ram, 10% video card.
It really bothers me to have people on here actually thinking they understand this stuff, whereas they are completely clueless.[/b]
And about the cpu usage you're right. My friend just got a "new" computer but he still has his old graphic card and his fps increased by alot.
Not sure about the amount of ram because I just ran anound the moradon. I'm not gonna argue about it because I didn't go to emc or cz, just logged off.
