    Will 2Mb make games run any smoother? specifically high end games like starcraft ( uses a lot of cpu ) diablo 3, possibility battlefield 3???

    maybe like 5-10 extra fps? that would be huge in my opinion and worth the 250

    No. Unless you are playing at ultra-low settings, your framerates will typically be limited by the mobile GPU (GT 650m) long before they are limited by the CPU.
