Just bought an Evesham A410 Voyager which comes with the AMD Turion MT34 cpu
and the ATI mobile X700 graphics card. I would like to play the occasional
game of Counter Strike Source when I'm working away but have found it jumpy
when I've played. I've checked all settings etc and the system hould be up
to a game - I'm guessing its the 512mb of ram. I'm new to laptops etc and
need some advice on ram - Do they use pc3200 ddr (SODimm)? Is my notebook
capable of running dual channel? what ram do I buy?
Thanks in advance.

Are you running off battery or mains power? Your cpu and graphics are
probably running at half-speed, if it's battery.
Does the HD light flash during the stutters? More ram will help, if
that's the case, as it will prevent pagefile access.
As has been recommended, buy your ram from crucial.com, using the memory
selector, but do check what configuration your current ram is - i.e. you
may have 2 sticks of 256MB and no free sockets, meaning you'll have to
discard some of what you have, in order to upgrade.
