    after some money saving i decided to upgrade my RAM to 4gigs after encountering some problem with my Starbound gameplay but then here comes the question.. is this enough to play starbound with Frackin Universe mod with no problem?

    here's some spec of my computer now :

    Processor: AMD A6-5400K APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics (2 CPUs), ~4.0GHz
    Memory: 4096MB RAM


    Card name: AMD Radeon HD 5500 Series
    Display Memory: 2281 MB

    let me know if i have something to upgrade again..

    My personal specs are an i5-62000 @ 2.30 GHz and 8 GB of RAM and I can run FU just fine. I also have several optimisation mods installed to get me around 50-60 FPS on average (haven't tested the FPS but it's playable with a few lagspikes occasionally with a lot on screen). Your system should be able to handle FU just fine since you actually have a dedicated GPU.

    very well, thanks for the info.. i ask this because i was playing Starbound and got black box glitch due to memory error (was having 2GB Ram before) now i have 4gb shared with my GPU which mean 3GB Ram.. im still doubt about it.

    Except the game is more CPU dependant, not GPU, and their CPU is quite weak. Yours is fairly more powerful by comparison.

    Yours: https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=intel+core+i5-6200u+@+2.30ghz

    The game will run, but not well.

    It does use both, but the GPU really doesnt have much to do. Pixel graphics are super easy to pump out, so the game doesnt require a strong GPU. The rest of the game, the AI, world generation, etc, that all is done on the CPU, so you need to focus on that when judging performance of this game. That is why comparing performance between games is moot and pointless.

    I think its fine. It will run, but not as smooth as a gaming PC would be. It's just my thought, though. Not a hunderd percent correct.
