Adding more RAM may increase overall performance, but it will do little or nothing to improve game play. You need decent graphics for that & you simply don't have it. An external graphics solution is NOT cost effective. There are only a couple of options available & they generally cost as much as a low end laptop. The ViDock 2 is an example.

As I see it, you have two choices:

1. limit your game play to older titles that are capable of being played decently on your system

2. buy a gaming laptop that already has decent built-in graphics

option 2.5: buy a new gaming DESKTOP, because if it's for gaming, you shouldn't buy a laptop...

This has already been explained in your other thread.

You have a weak single core CPU & you don't have enough RAM. You'd need to get the RAM amount up to 2GB & add a gaming video card. And it's very possible that you would need to upgrade the power supply to be able to handle the gaming card. Even so, that still leaves you with a weak CPU.

Altogether you're probably looking at $250 or so to turn your system into a gamer, but it still wouldn't be a very good one.
