I have recently bought a new laptop, an ASUS N56VJ-S4149H. I bought it to use it in all possible ways I could want, so that would be gaming downloading and streaming movies browsing the web and programming software. So far it has been running great but one thing annoys me a little bit.
I frequently play Mount&Blade: Warband (it's a great game and you should check it out). Everything runs smoothly but only when I turn down the 'Texture Detail'. Otherwise it will lag a lot and I can't really play.
Now my question is: Is this a problem of not enough RAM? At first I was really sure it was but after thinking about for a while I'm not anymore. My computer only has 4 Gigabytes of RAM and there is still a slot open. So will the game's performance at higher graphical settings improve if I add another 8 Gigabytes?
The computer has an Nvidia GeForce GT 635M inside and an Intel Core i5 3230M CPU with 2,6 GHz.
