Towers are my "Desktops". They use more power than my laptop. It has nothing to do with what your asking, I just happened to mention it.

Use Nvidia Inspector to Overclock your GPU.

A Good stable clock would be 900 Core/1800 Shader/1625 Memory Clocks.

Just download N.I. and you'll understand what I'm saying.

Click the "Unlock Max..." button in the top right.

EDIT: Core Clock is half the value of the shader clock. Change that to adjust core clock.

and what about the overclocking? and upgrading?
oh yea and the ram at the start it says 4 socket and the 2... idk what it means
DDR3 1333 MHz SDRAM, 4 x SO-DIMM socket for expansion up to 16 G SDRAM (Quad Core), 2 x SO-DIMM socket for expansion up to 8 G SDRAM (Dual Core)

This means if you had have gotten the i5 you would have only had 2 RAM slots, seeing as you have the quadcore you have 4 RAM slots! smile.gif

Use MSI Afterburner, make sure you don't go over spec with the temps and voltages. Don't overclock the memory, my Asus has a single memory chip that's only passively cooled and apparently it's blown for other users that have overclocked. I don't have the same laptop as you, but i'm just warning you before you blow your new $2000+ laptop..

Memory clocked at a max of 1625 is fine. Any higher is pushing it.

If you get RAM, you could call ASUS to get RAM rated for your system or you could go on Newegg and get RAM that is the same speed and timings as the RAM in your laptop.

The cost shouldn't be that much given the price of RAM these days.
