Will getting more ram increase FPS even a little bit?

I'm gonna upgrade my pc soon, but due to budget constrains I am forced to buy the 2x4 gb Corsair Vengance RAM before the other components. I will have to make do with for another month or so. Anyway, since my pc is still running on an integrated Intel g620 gpu I used to get really really horrible fps even at low settings and 1366x768 resolution(it was just 2 gbs of RAM before). So would getting all that extra RAM improve the fps even just a little bit? Atleast enough to make the game playable? Like 25-30 fps.

    Having more ram will help your gaming performance and your system as a whole but due to your graphics card I wouldn't expect much of a difference.
  2. 8Gb is enough. more is unnecessary but helpful if you do other things while gaming

    Will it atleast make the game playable? I'll have to bear this until I get the AMD R7 260X 2gb gpu
  4. The ram upgrade won't do a thing for gaming, it's the either the gpu or both cpu and gpu that's holding the system back.
  5. Adding more ram won't do a thing. Not even 1 extra fps.
    Right click on you screen(Win 7), under gadgets pull up the CPU meter. The 2d meter will show your ram usage. You're probably not even using 50% while gaming.

    ok, so as of right now you only have 2gb?
    ... you need more, it will help some. But fully playable? Not with the g620
  6. its only a month so dont worry abt it.. more ram will make everything run smoother as you wont be caching to disk.
