I have a Compaq CQ 45 121 TX, laptop, Vista 32 bit Home Premium.
Intel Core 2 Duo Mobile processor P8400 - 2.26GHz (Penryn, 1066MHz front side bus, 3MB Level-2 cache)
RAM 3GB (2+1 in two slots), 800MHz, 200-pin, PC2-6400, SDRAM Small Outline Dual In-Line Memory Module (SODIMM)
Nvidia GeForce 9200M GS, 256Mb, 8@550MHz, Core Speed 550 MHz,Shader Speed 1300 MHz, Memory Speed 700 MHz
I use this mainly for watching videos or playing games.
Some newer games (offline ones) seem to lag a bit, specially when the GPU temperature reaches above 60 C.(as shown by RealTemp)
I was wondering if I could replace the 1Gb RAM stick with a 2Gb stick. Will it make the performance better in gaming ?
I have also thought to installing XP or Win 7 instead of Vista. Could that also help ?
Any suggestions are appreciated.
