Replaced Lenovo G570 43347PU RAM w/CMSO8GX3M2A1333C9 kit


Recommended Posts

This is the laptop:




I purchased it locally (Fry's) a while back for $399.99.


Newegg had a great deal on Corsair's 2x4GB 1333MHz SO-DIMM kit:




$41.99 at the time of my purchase.


...and here are the Windows Experience Index results before & after:


Before / After


6.5 / 6.6 Processor


7.2 / 7.3 Memory


4.8 / 6.3 Graphics


6.2 / 6.3 Gaming Graphics


5.8 / 5.8 Primary Hard Drive


With an overall score (lowest score) change of a full point, from 4.8 to 5.8.


I'm very happy with the graphics jump, the integrated Intel HD 3000 makes good use of additional system memory - I'll try adjusting some more settings to see if the gaming graphics can get a bigger bump.


Bought the laptop as a backup for my desktop, so far have only tried Left 4 Dead 2 and Dirt 2, both worked fine before the memory upgrade.


Now that I've doubled the RAM, I'll try installing a few slightly more demanding titles and see how they perform!


Very happy with my purchase - Corsair (as usual) rocks...


Now I just have to be patient for the Vengeance K90 to come out for my desktop, may also go for a M60 to go with it - depending on my final budget and what Amazon & Newegg prices are like.
