Yah that won't improve your gaming performance sorry to say. like 99% of games can only utilize 2gb of system ram total anyway because they are 32-bit executables. Someone who tells you going from 8gb to 10gb of ram will improve gaming performance does not know their stuff.

With a laptop where it's hard to upgrade main components. your best bet is to ensure you always have the most up to date drivers, also disable unneeded services in your operating system. the razer game booster is a good bet. You could upgrade your cpu perhaps.

Yeah...this may come as a surprise to some of the people on here, but my gaming rig only has 4GB of RAM, and I've never had performance issues. It's kind of just a logical extension: Since DirectX more or less requires you to make your program 32-bit, all games we know of use a max of 4GB. Plus, the consoles have a severe lack of memory, so any developer working on both tends to be conservative.

If you check the thread he went from 2GB to 10GB. He had 2GB and 1GB of that was going towards the IGP so in essence he only had 1GB of usable memory for windows, so a 8GB stick is a big improvement for him.

I know the extra 2GB won't be a big help but it won't do any harm, will it? How do I know the speed of the previous RAM card?
post #49 of 55
is your unit's RAM now running in single or dual channel mode.?
