So pit, I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. Everything is exactly as it was the day I got it. No upgrades, nothing.

I would like to know how to get the best possible performance out of it for games like Left 4 Dead, Return To Castle Wolfenstein, etc, for the lowest possible cost.

Thanks.

Step 1) Read the specs for those games.
Step 2) Have betters specs than that.



So far, the best guide to Specs tweaking ever.

Close every program possible, and every process (if you know whats safe to close and whats not to; otherwise don't do this) possible to ensure maximum RAM is available. The more RAM the better. The video card often borrows space from the system's RAM so it can have more video RAM. This will also ensure your game is getting the most out of the processor, so other programs aren't hogging it, so you won't lag.

Close, or delete every program possible?

So...buy a shitload of ram, then?
