My bad... You are right! I misunderstood and thought you had a FX171

You are right with all of the upgrades except the GPU as it is soldered on

Is the video slow or fuzzy? Did you try installing a updated or new display driver?

just picked up a t9300 off of ebay for $250. i was gonna get this x7800 on ebay for $170, but its an es verison. wasnt very interested in a cpu that was probably over used and abused

cant wait to see how much faster she runs, my t5550 started out great, but now with all my apps it stutters!

Nice... My X7800 I had was also a ES chip and worked fine for me. I also got a T9300 now but my laptop is soon to be sold again as I have one of those craves to get something new again.... Such a awesome laptop.... Think mine might be the most upgraded ever...Ever! Raid0 320GB 7200rpm drives, Bluray burner, 4GB turbo memory, I wana cry, but it has to be done.... Maybe I should run a 3Dmark bench

Are you watching good quality video's like 720p resolution video's? Also... have you tried using a different program to play the file with?

I changed my mind again lol

I cancelled the order for the Gateway after finding a bargain late last night. Bought a Rock 620 Extreme Edition, highly spec'd but pretty cheap (X9100/9800GT/4GB DDR3/320GB 7200), the only problem is its 15.4" but I can live with that.

Should arrive tomorrow, would be good to see how it performs next to the Gateway FX series so I'll bench the cr*p out of it and let you know

I installed these drivers and lost over 200 points on my 3DMark06 score. Anyone else experience this? I am next going to try the customized drivers that MadMule recommended.
