I have recently decided to upgrade my old Fuitsu Lifebook ah530 to be able to run games (normally lower end) when away on business,
My specs are as follows so far -
Intel HM55 HD Graphics (Integrated 1.7g shared memory - Only 64m dedicated which is a pain) Cannot change in bios
Intel Duel core P6200 2.1ghz Processor
64bit windows 7
I can play quite good games like Left4Dead2 and Stranded deep, But I'd just like to up the settings a bit to get that smooth Framerate (graphics arent a necessity, it's just casual gaming really when away)
So My plan, As I dont think I can Can upgrade the HM55 integrated Graphics card with a more modern intel integrated card or change the dedicated memory - Or can i?) I am going to upgrade the following, Will this improve my gaming enough to warrant the expenditure? (i'd prefer just to upgrade this than pay for another, I'm tight )
8GB Ram -
Duel Core I5 540m Processor - Motherboard is FJNBB06 so should be compatible http://www.cpu-upgrade.com/mb-Intel_%28chipsets%29/HM55_Express.html
And possibly an SSD to replace the HDD - I've read these make a big difference in performance?
Dependant on which one will deliver the best results and which I really need, I don't potentially need to get all 3, just need to upgrade enough to be able to get things smoother, I'm headed towards the ram and processor avenue but Id love some advice!
Thanks for the help,
