No fair, the latest ones let you have 1066MHz RAM?

Hey guys I wanted to ask you all what you think of me snabbing a G Skill Titan 128GB SSD. I found a New, Unopened one for sale at $270. I figured this might be my best upgrade to speed up my FX.

If you need something fast like that, it would be awesome. But I think Raid0 with 7200rpm drives is more then enough for me. Besides... the ram speed might limit your speed on a SSD drive

I have the fuzzy DVD problem. I have the 1440x900 display. What about you?

Im thinking its because of the odd display size that makes 480i video a bit fuzzy. Everything else like 720p and higher HD video looks as super as an HD video should on 1440x900.

I love my FX, best bang for buck laptop i've ever seen. I know i'll have this computer for a few years before i find a better one with replaceable GPU's and overclockablility.


BTW, the P-7805u; if i upgrade to an X-series CPU, will my mobo see it so that I can adjust the multipliers and voltage to OC it?
