Default Laptop Processor

I am currently using the processor displayed in my signature, but I purchases Counter-Strike: Source. Whilst I have the processor displayed (1.1Ghz) I cannot play Counter-Strike: Source without a **** load of lag. So does ayone have any suggestions on a processor I should buy?

I don't want anything to big, just so it can handle CSS.
Something thats 2.0Ghz - 2.8Ghz (Roughly).

So please if you guys at TF could help me out it would be great.

Oh and it shouldn't be to pricey either coz I'm not really into spending.

its probably your video. you probably have integrated video. upgrading your processor will help, but it won't be that great since you will still have integrated video, and since its a laptop.. i'm pretty sure there' sntohing you can do about it.

as for processor.. they don't have 2.0 - 2.8ghz for pentium M. you're looking at between 1.5 - 2.0 ghz. just look at your budget. the more money you have, the better processor you should get... i wouldn't recommend anything lower than the pentium M 740 ~ 1.73ghz.

that should be equivalent to about 2.8 ghz pentium 4.
