      I think I'll buy more memory since that's never a bad idea :-)

      I've talked to a computer guy today and he told me that in my case
      (Photoshop CS4 & 3D) the most important thing was the GPU in the
      graphics card, not so much the graphic card's memory as long as it is
      more than 256 MB. I'm thinking about buying something like the Asus ATI
      EAH 4670 which is about 80 EUR here in my local store. Its GPU is much
      faster than the one in my current graphics adapter, plus: The card I
      have now has problems with Photoshop CS4 (or the other way 'round) so
      Adobe advises anyone using this card to turn the GPU support off... If I
      can find a card that is known to work with CS4 without problems, I'll
      get one AND more memory.

      Thanks again!
