Default laptop ram

alright so money is tight and im going to put rebuilding my desktop on hold. the laptop on my sig is going to be my primary machine for gaming for a while. now it can put up to a gig of video memory so im thinking of adding a 2 gig stick of ram so ill have a 1 gig stick and a 2 gig stick. will this ram work?

specs say it supports up to 4 gigs. It says in your sig that it has 2gigs of ram already. May want to pop it open and see if your running 1 2gig or 2 1 gig sticks.

What are you using on the laptop? The 2 gig it already has is more than adaquite unless your using highly demanding programs.

no, you asked if it would work, not if it was worth it.

personally, I don't think a graphic intensive game like Bioshock is going to run on an integrated card. I could be wrong, but generally if you want to game a dedicated graphics module on your laptop is the way to go. Good luck with it though, I can help much on whether or not it will work for that game, I've only played it on 360 (it's a sick game btw, totally recommended.)

you said nothing in your first post about a particular game. plain and simple. the way you stated it you asked if that ram would work in your comp, I said yes, because it will. But I guess if your going to act like a 4th grader, maybe someone else will help ya.
