Are the newer P series good? lol The list didn't have the new model.
Just look at the cache sizes on the chips. The P8400 has 3mb and the better chips have 6mb. The cache size does make it faster and your best bet might be a T9600 or even T9400 with 1066mhz fsb

i put some on my t9300 when i upgraded my cpu, i cant really compare results on that though. I also replaced the heatpad on my northbridge with as5 (some people say not to because the thickness of the heatpad allows the heatsink to fit firmly on the chip, but mine has been fine)

I used AS ceramique on my cpu, and gpu. On my GPU I saw huge improvements but can't say if it's the thermalpaste that helped because dust was blocking my heatsink and removed it when I aplied it

Just pulled the trigger...

P-7805u
P8400 2.26GHz
9800M GTS 1GB 55nm
4GB DDR3 RAM
320GB 7200 Hard Drive
DVDRW
17" WXGA+ (I have been hoping for this since anything but native looks terrible on laptops, and I would rather run higher settings @ lower res than lower settings/not at all @ higher res)


Have a 2nd laptop 320GB 7200 sitting around. Can't freakin' wait! Should get here Monday or Tuesday. Add me to the owners when I get it, I'll get some pics... of the insides too, I'm gonna put some AS5 in there.


Within a few months I'll probably upgrade the processor.

Edit: If it's good enough to run everything I play (the most extreme being maybe Empire: Total War) then you'll see most of my sig rig for sale soon.. and I'll just use my spare parts around to build a cheaper desktop.

Waited over a week - that guy never responded. Gave up.

Same thing with a friend - he never responded, even though he logged in. (And he was supposedly fine shipping to people with no rating on those forums, since he required money orders, not Paypal, so it's tough to scam)
