My System Specs


Actually guys, the CPU helps A LOT in Source based games, especially the older games like CSS, DODS, and HL2. I noticed a subtantial increase in fps when I when from my P4 Prescott to my C2D E6600. Source Engine physics take a huge toll on the CPU, so in this case it would benefit in this case, with both the higher clock speed and cache. Newer games like TF2 and L4D are the games that really up the ante on GPU power.

Overall though your laptop is seriously lacking in the GPU area as well so I would really upgrade to a new laptop when the funds become more available.
