I probably will buy another 4GB of RAM however, since its not too much. I pretty much want to be able to play stuff like Skyrim, Diablo 3, Rage, and Fallout on at least medium settings with a smooth framerate. is this possible for this laptop?
http://www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/home-office/-/products... < upgrade to a gt 650m and upgrade to an i5 2310m for 670$ or for 640$ with the 3rd gen i3 with the coupon code NBQ1148 which will pretty much run almost every game on ultra on its native resolution
the 7730m will run almost every game on high while the gt 650m will prolly max most game on ultra at its native 1336X768 reolution
the 7730m would max out all the games you listed on its native resolution
however there really is no diffrence between 6 gb's of ram and 8 gb's of ram and i wouldnt spend the extra 50$ of 2 gb's of ram....
Even battefield 3 only uses 4 gb of ram max..
and if you can go an extra 70$ i would still recomend you get http://www.shopping.hp.com/en_US/h [...] aoid=35252 upgrade to a gt 650m and a i5 3rd generation for only 670$ or an i3 3rd gen for 640$ which is a considerable performance jump of 30%! from the gt 640m and 7730m
