So is it worth buying 4gb ram?
How many fps do u think i'd get in ,i.g., cs(100-150 currently low setts) /(50-60 rocket league currently)

Best Answer:

Piu: Effect on gaming is minimal. There are a few games that require a lot of system ram, and in those few games, you might get better performance. You should also get slightly faster boot time. You did not state the laptop brand and model number to match the ram and see whether it is a single slot or dual slot with one open.
The older games you show will have no effect, and since the laptop display is limited to 60fps, cs is not really showing over 60.

Check crucial.com to try to figure out the ram situation of the laptop.
Installing Speccy also shows ram details.
On the two games you show, adding ram does nothing.

Other answer:

Piu:
8GB of RAM will make a somewhat good change to your overall daily activity experience. It might even allow you to run some more games that require more than 4GB of RAM, but it really won't help existing games that are already running adequately under 4GB. You definitely won't see a more than 2 FPS change in frame rates.

Unfortunately, with a laptop you are basically stuck with whatever you originally bought. The only things that are replaceable in a laptop are the RAM and the storage (HDD or SSD).

Adrian:
FPS is almost totally determined by your video, the 840m. You cannot change that. As for ram, going from 4GB to 8GB will help a little bit with system response and possible loading software (like large games). However, once running a game, your FPS will still be the same.
Piu:
it's an asus x555ln-x0244h if im not mistaken
also i only need 5-10 fps to get a better experience in rocket league … do u think i can get it?
