Hello All,

I have a ASUS X53U SX181D laptop.
Main configuration of the Laptop are as follow :-
Processor - AMD APU C-60 (1 Ghz)
Ram - 2GB DDR3
HDD - 320 GB
Screen - 15.6 inches

I am thinking of upgrading my laptop's Ram so wanted your opinion about the same. Basically, I am planning to upgrade my Ram to 6 GB i.e. adding another Ram stick of 4 GB DDR3 capacity but a bit confused whether or not it is worthwhile because it seems it would Bottleneck with the processor.

So, please guide me whether or not to go for the upgrade keeping in mind the price of 4 GB Ram and the speed increase in laptop's functioning.

Regards,
Joojo

It's always worth adding more RAM regardless of CPU model but you didn't post Windows version (ie x86 or x64).

32-bit Windows: max addressable RAM is approx 3.2GB so no point having more than 3 or 4GB total.

64-bit Windows: As much RAM as your laptop can take.
