A RAM upgrade or a GPU upgrade?... which of these would better show off what Tiger has to offer?

If Apple continue to use the 32Mb cards in the eMac/iBook/Mini arent many new switchers going to miss out somewhat on the full Tiger "experience". With these machines being so popular with switchers I would think Apple would want them to see EVERYTHING Tiger has to offer?

I believe 64MB of VRAM is required to take advantage of some of the visual effects like the "ripple."

RAM is always a good idea.

it depends on how much of what you have now. If you only have 256MB of RAM, then you want to upgrade that. If you have 512, and you ever notice that you hear your Harddrive, you want to upgrade the RAM. If you don't, then you could upgrade your videocard to a 128MB card, or even 256 if you wanna spend the $$

Not just the amount of VRAM but also the level of the GPU. Meaning how much of shaders etc. it can handle ;)
