Re: nvidia drivers worth installing?



You didn't state what isn't performing to your expectations,  However
you're using a fairly low end GPU, so there isn't much that can be
done to improve its performance other than to not use Composite (which
by nature will result in a performance hit).

So, the GPU that my laptop has performing as expected. In this case,
how do i improve the performance? As this GPU shares the main memory,
would increasing the system memory help?
