I think you should upgrade to a Radeon 9600 XT instead of more RAM, it will do you a lot better

lol yep . . .

better off doing that . . .

reason i have a laptop is that my room used to be REALLY small (all it could fit was a bed, a small desk and a chair, in such a way that the closet and bathroom were still accesible . . .

but after we remodeled, i've been itching to get a desktop, now that i have room for it!
