Would laptop driven by Core i5 430M improve gaming performance by upgrading system RAM from 4GB to 8GB?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
A friend on a gaming forum asked whether his laptop would play games better if he upped this RAM from 4GB to 8GB. Since his Core i5 430M chip has integrated graphics, I felt he would, but he wants to be sure before spending 60 BSP (British Pounds). It would take days before Intel's technical support replies.

If you kindly reply please make a good case so I can copy and paste for my friend to see. Thank you.

No, the 430M is weak and throwing more RAM at it won't do much. Take this from someone who used to struggle to run games on a i5 480M.
