Right now I have a laptop computer, and it's not very old but it is by no means any good. It is a gateway and it has a tl-50 for a CPU and geforce 6100 for graphics (integrated obviously
...) I only have 512MB of RAM and 128 of that is shared for graphics. I get about 20~ or maybe a little less in CS:Source on all medium settings at 1280x800
I was wondering whether or not the best temporary option for me is to get more RAM. I don't know if it is my graphics card that is maxxed out or if my RAM is holding me back. Obviously, I am not expecting this computer to ever game great, but even if I could get 10 or more frames/sec that would be amazing until september since RAM is unbelievably cheap right now. So my question is, should I get more RAM or would that do nothing to the performance of the game?
Remember: I only have 512 MB and 128 of it is shared. Also, cpu-z shows that the ram is only running at 266Mhz. So if I do get another gig of say, 667, should I take out the old stick? since the new stick will be slowed down to 266 if I don't.
Thanks for the help in advance.
