    Default Trying to run Counter Strike 1.6 on my laptop

    As the title explains, I have a laptop with the following specs:

    Core 2 Duo 1.66
    2GB ram
    Intel 965 express chipset shared video

    I can run CS 1.6 right now but when I'm in firefights or on zombie maps my FPS drops to like 5 and makes it impossible to aim etc. I know the graphics card is **** etc. but all I want is to play some rounds of 1.6 every once in a while. I'm currently running my settings on OpenGL, everything the lowest it will go. Since I only have 2GB of ram, i was wondering if I bought another 2GB stick for $40 - would that bring me up to 30 or so FPS since my video is shared? Also if anyone has any tips to bring my FPS up like some console scripts I would appreciate it. Also before anyone suggests, I have updated my graphics card with the latest intel chipset driver. thanks again!

    Did you just ask if two gigs of ram will increase your frame rate by 25 frames?

    Counter-Strike isn't the most memory intensive game. If you can't run it with 2GB, 4GB isn't going to help you very much.

    Cool where do I put all that stuff?

    Also do you mean 25fps when you are in a firefight? that's where it really kills me, like I'm going in slow motion.

    No I didn't

    I said that I get 5FPS at the worst times, otherwise I average 15-25 or so depending whats going on. I was asking if its worth the 40$ to see a noticeable change.

    Open steam and find CS, than choose properties and under general click set launch options and than u just copy and paste the FPS config in there. Try it now and report back if it runs better. At least it did for me when i played Normal CS.6 even in fire fights

    Chil, Coleman. We're not trying to be sarcastic jerks - that's just the way we are. We're also just trying to help.

    I honestly don't think 2GB of ram is going to help you, but you're more than welcome to try.
