you can put another gb of ram in your laptop, laptop uses so-dimm usually, you just have to find out if its ddr or ddr2

it'd be abit harder than for a desktop of course, and yes it will make your warranty invalid, so check with the manufacturer, maybe you can send it to them to have 1gb added, and you keep your warranty

lol farhan do you ever think before you click post?

hmmm my first question... WTF is a ddr? lol srry i dont have a 2nd

oh well i mine aswell give up i didnt rrly plan on buying it for PC lol i was just checking. I guees ill wait until xmas.

ddr is double data rate, just a type of ram. ddr2 is a newer version of it..basically to figure it out, when did you buy your laptop, that will probably help determine whether its DDR or DDR2. i got mine in xmas 2006, it has DDR2 667MHz , when did you get yours?

OK, simplified.


For at least 6 years now we've got the so called "DDR" memory. Might even be longer, no idea, but for this it doesn't matter anyway.
So, just assume all memory (RAM) is called DDR x. x will be the number for the version. Newest is DDR 3, but you don't need that. Only benchmarks really show the big difference, for gaming you're fine with high-end DDR2 (low end too BTW). High-end DDR2 costs less than DDR3 low, so just forget about DDR3.
Well, each has their own DIMM slots. Mem banks. Those things you can put your RAM in. With their own I mean, each version has a slightly different DIMM.

6 DIMMS here. It's probably a nehalem board or something. If you don't know what that is, it doesn't matter. You probably have 4 slots. I don't think you'll have more then that. You'd know it if you did (since it's something pretty special).
Soo... DDR2 doesn't fit in DDR3 slots. Your mobo is built for a specific version of DDR, you'll need to get that type of RAM. I think CPU-Z can show you which "version" you are using. Just google it.



Disconnect your computer once and open the case up. Look around and compare it with pictures on the web. Upgrading RAM is very, very easy. It's much easier than you'd imagine it to be. For me it is something like a 2 minute job. For a normal case I don't think it's going to take longer than 10 minutes. 15 being the absolute max. Just press the RAM strip into the slot. That's all. Very, very easy.


But what are your specs? If you've got a slow CPU or GPU, the extra RAM isn't really going to help.

^ good explanation. but uhh

the thing is, he has a laptop, so its not as simple as checking if you have ddr ram on a desktop, since desktop you just take off one side of the case, but laptop would be a whole lot harder i would imagine...

i doubt he would have DDR3, is that even in laptops yet?

Too bad I only have an Asus Nvidia 7300LE, like this one:

Runs on low FPS with the ENBSeries mod activated and when driving custom cars @ 640x480. Any cheap but cool cards that I can use?

I'm getting one of these Huck. Wont have to upgrade for a long while after this, worth the money.


Also depends on what kind of slot you have.

Laptop.. Well, CPU-Z will tell. But not every laptop can get it's RAM upgraded.


And yeah, if you're not some fanboy that hangs to nVidia, then you should get that HD4870.
If you're on a smaller budget, then HD4850. You won't regret it. And it's a pretty cheap card. High-end like for a midrange price.



I'm waiting for nVidia's GT200b, which should become the new GTX 280. It it's fast enough I'll get it. Or I'll wait a bit longer, for when I switch to Nehalem and then go SLI (as X38 doesn't support SLI, but CF).
Meh, prob get that GTX 280 and skip Nehalem wand get Westmere (or what ever its called).
