CPU= Intel Pentium 4 Mobile 2.80Ghz
Memory= PC2700 512MB one module, with one open slot
HDD= Fujitsu 20GB 5400 RPM
Video= NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 64MB Integrated, dedicated VRAM
OS= Windows XP Home SP3
I have noticed that some older games that I play like ones that require 1/4 of my system specs are sluggish on this system. I tried to play starcraft, Diablo II, hech even Guild Wars, and they all run very slow as in 7 FPS.
I was wondering if there is an easy and cheap upgrade that can resolve this issue, was thinking of buying a 512MB RAM stick for it, but didn't know if that would make any difference.
I know I am going to upgrade the HDD and battery with this system eventually. Someone was telling me I can buy a PCMCI video card, but didn't know anything about it, as I would like to have a better video card on this system.
I am welcome to all suggestions, I know I should just buy a new one which I will do early next year, but this laptop will go to my mother once I buy a new one and wanted it to be upgraded for her as well.
