    the main reason im upgrading ram for my laptop that has 512 mb is to run the games faster on my laptop since its got 32mb vram. all my friends said there is no way i can upgrade graphic card for laptop. so when i was looking for ram, there were PC3200, 2700 2100, etc... my computer has pc2700 memory right now but do i have to install pc2700 in it?
    i also heard there are limits for how much memory the laptop can hold. is that true?

    Your system memory and video memory are two completely different things. You can normally upgrade your system memory up to the limit the motherboard chipset can handle so yes there are limts to the amount of memory you can add. If your motherboard supports RAM speeds higher than PC2700 go for it, but you will more than likely have to do some adjustments once you do this. Contact the manufacturer or consult their web site to see exactly what the upgrade path is.
