I believe 4GB is the max you can upgrade on your computer. Otherwise, it will be limited by the OS. Game performance can benefit from a video card upgrade too but for laptops, it's a little hard to come by unless your motherboard was designed to use a separate video card.

Upgrading your RAM will only make the game run faster and smoother; it won't enhance the graphics of the game.

You will get hit by your graphics component. Especially on a laptop. Upgrading RAM will make it load faster and things like that, but visually, it will be crap. Not worth it.

Or better yet, maybe list the full specs of the laptop. Try running CPU-Z software or equivalent.

Wooo, that's a pretty nice system. Yeah, try upgrading the RAM to see what it does. Im sure it will benefit heavy programs that requires a lot of loading time. Very similar to what I'm running:



But I have no video card .
