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.

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 :(.
