Tech Hounds explore what can we do to avoid lag, stuttering, and performance - memory wise. It looks like 2 GB is a must if you want to run games at the highest details, but we think the major improvement of having 2 GB (or even 4 GB) of memory is not performance or lack of stuttering. It's game loading time - far shorter for newer games.
At one time or another, all of us have complained of too low or choppy
frame rates at least once when we're playing games. Low frame rates can be
detrimental to the gaming experience, particularly if it happens at that
critical moment when you've lined up for a frag and got fragged instead by
the one on your crosshair. Naturally, we don't want any lag when playing
games, so what can we do? A lot actually, but we must know what cause these
problems in the first place.. You can read on over here.
