Was bored so I thought I'd post up my laptop. Figured it might be a nice change from buying/upgrading advice threads?
Sorry for the bad picture.
I could afford a 1k+ laptop but, I couldn't afford all the money up front but, i bought an almost decent laptop, an Acer 5920G with a, T5250/2gb DDR2 800/8600m GT/no HDD. Then when i got some money i installed a WesternDigital "WD10JPVT" 5400 RPM 1Tb hdd and windows 7, then got a 4GB stick of DDR2 800 bumping me up to 5gb. I then got an HD4670 DDR2 which ran at 90-110c then I side graded to an Nvidia GT 240m DDR3 and finally a T9300 and AR9380 wifi card.
When I upgraded my CPU I did a PPL mod and over clocked the T9300 from 2.5ghz at 800mhz FSB to 2.95ghz @ 947mhz FSB, my ram went from 667 (chipset limitation) to around 700mhz. I also did some cooling mods, which apparently helped.
EDIT: my GT 240m is overclocked too
coreclock:550 @ 673 MHz | memoryclock: 800 @ 1003 MHz
I'm pretty happy with those temps. This is under some casual use and gaming. Gpu under furmark hit 85C after about an hour or so.
Well since i couldn't afford one i built one as i could afford/find the parts.
All i could really do now is a 1-2TB drive/SSD, a battery and or Better screen with higher Res, a friend with the same laptop installed 1440x900 screen with better image quality.
So far I can play games like, dirt 2, mafia 2, BatMan AA, BatMan AC at medium/high-high at a good 40-50 fps.
