I have a Macbook Pro from after April 2010
OS X 10.6.8
PRO: 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
MEM: 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
VID: NVIDIA GeForce 320M with 256 MB of VRAM total

I want to play Diablo III and it seems that this will really put a strain on my computer and the Frame Rate of the game will be awfully slow. I was wondering if I upgrade to 8gb of RAM will this help the performance of the computer while trying to play Diablo? (Would it enhance the performance of graphics card? Would it improve performance of the computer in general while gaming? Would it do anything?!?)

you can't go wrong with more ram. i think that´s the best way to increase your computer's speed.

here are the needed system requirements:

Mac® OS X 10.7.x or newer
Intel® Core 2 Duo
2 GB RAM
NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 330M or ATI Radeon™ HD 4670 or better

More memory is always nice to have, however, the extra 4 GB of memory is not going to do anything at all to help with the frame rate.

Here are the system requirements for a Mac:

Mac® OS X 10.7.x or newer
Intel® Core 2 Duo
2 GB RAM
GeForce® GT 330M or ATI Radeon™ HD 4670 or better
