I want to improve my gaming performace...

post #1 of 55
Thread Starter 
I have an Acer 5755G laptop, with Intel i3-2350M, NVIDIA GeForce GT 630M and 2GB DDR3 RAM. OS is Windows 7 64-bit and I use DX11. I know this is not a very good system for gaming but I want to know how to improve its gaming performance, so what should I do? What do I need to upgrade?

What do you mean by upgrade? I don't think the laptop is upgradable like desktop. What kind of games do you play? If you want to play smoothly with the GT 630M, you need to lower down the graphics settings of the games that you play. For 2010 and 2011 games, the gpu is capable of medium settings for most of them. But for 2012 to 2013 games, you really need to play in the lowest possible settings. I made this recommendation based on the benchmarks of your laptop that you can find here. As I said, its really depend on the games that you play but you will need to play in the lowest settings for more demanding games. Oh, you could also lowered your resolution in the games too but it won't be pretty.

You could also try application such as Razer Game Booster to improve your frame per second but it won't make big difference. Last but not least, you could also try lowering the settings via Nvidia Control Panel, it can give you a big boost too. Oh, don't forget to upgrade your driver. If none of them helps, I'm afraid that you can't do anything except to buy a better laptop or build a new pc.

Sound advice also if you are using Geforce Experience just optimize settings this will likely disable MSAA and enable FXAA and will give you optimal performance from your machine. If that is not acceptable for the games you want to play then as Moustache says build a new desktop PC!

I use Razer Game Booster. I think I can upgrade RAM in a laptop. The benchmark is of a different model, because my laptop uses Intel i3-2350M. BTW I am able to play Assassin's Creed III at 1366*768 at medium settings at a decent FPS. I play CS:GO at the same resolution with all settings at maximum. It's even smoother. So how to much should I upgrade my RAM so as to be able to keep the FPS constantly smooth?

I hate NVIDIA GeForce Experience it just puts everything to lowest possible settings. Truth is I can handle those games at higher settings for a decent FPS.

8GB is the sweet spot for gaming.

Only if its fast enough. 1600mhz RAM is currently lowest "best speed" for current gen hardware. 1333mhz gives a small bottleneck.

The real honest answer here is, there really is not a lot that you can do to improve your gaming performance. Adding more RAM is all you can do really (8GB 1600MHz is what you should be aiming for).
Whilst this will improve your gaming performance (2GB is just not enough for gaming anymore especially while running Win 7) it won't make that much of a difference.

You can upgrade the video card just look up a vid on youtube on laptop dissassembly and find out what type of pci slot it uses last I knew MXM 3.0 was the latest for lappys but could be different now since its been a few years since I was in the laptop game.
