Laptop Upgrade time!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm going to ask for 300$ to upgrade my laptop, and will toss another 300$ into upgrading my laptop, my lappy specs are:

GTX 280m SLi
Q9000 2.0Ghz


I was thinking a GTX 460m, a small SSD and maybe a 2.6ish ghz dual core or a new quad core


Thank you
I love Corsair

i am guessing an alienware m17x?

I might upgrade the cpu, and get an ssd...otherwise I wouldn't bother with anything else.

280m sli is faster then a 460m, so that wouldn't really be an upgrade...and two 460's would undoubtedly put you over budget

Dell m17x


Also, I have 4GB of 1066mhz ram

Is it possible to replace the motherboard to a newer socket considering higher end m17x R1's shipped with i7s?
