Gaming Performance G550

My laptop and specs :-

Lenovo G550

Windows 7 (( Now Its Windows 10 [Upgraded] ))

Processor - Pentinum(R) Dual-Core CPU @2.3GHz T4500

Installed Memory (RAM) - 4.00Gb

System Type  - 64-bit Operating System 

Hello. Since many days,  I'm trying to download low spec games which might work In my G550. But, most of them are lagging or so. I just wanted to know Is there an way to increase the performances by changing the RAM or anything that might make the game work smooth, If yes then till how much can I upgrade, 8GB or? Is there any problem by upgrading to windows 10? Please help me out.

Re: Gaming Performance G550

Hi Avinash2872,


Welcome to the Community Forums.


Similar to this article, increasing RAM may not significantly improve gaming performance not unless that you notice RAM usage getting to 100% when playing especially if you are running multiple programs along with the game.


Specification of RAM for the model:

  • DDR3, 800/1066MHz support, 2x SODIMM, up to 8 GB Max

Adding the same capacity and specification of currently installed RAM will max it out.


About Windows version, did you have same gaming issue when you had it running on Windows 7?

You would be able to determine if such is OS related based on this comparison.


Related upgrades topic that is worth reviewing here and here.

Others rather consider SSD or CPU upgrade but take note of the costing if such upgrades are worth it than getting a new Windows 10 ready machine instead.


Hope this helps answer your query.
