    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? :D

    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.
