I'm currently using a laptop for gaming. It's the Dell G3 15 3579. Eventually, I'd like to start collecting parts to build a new rig. I play Valorant and my son plays fortnite on this laptop.

I noticed today that it only has 8GB of RAM. Is it worth upgrading the RAM, will it have noticable impact, or should I use that ~100 for new pc parts? If it's worth it, should I go to 16, or 32 GB?

Thanks in advance.

Try it.
If what's in the pc now is a single stick of 8GB get another 8GB stick.

Thanks for your response. I'll open the cover and check what the current ram alignment is.

Is it worth going to 32gb, or is 16 enough for most tasks?
