Has anyone used a ViDock2? It is an external video card box that plugs into the express slot.

I'm curious to know how well it works, $380 for the device.

I have no idea why you would need one with an FX, but as far as I have seen the express slot heavily bottlenecks the card.

The 9800 is nice but isn't top end imo, it's nice to have upgrade options. Why add faster ram or a faster cpu with that logic You have tested this device? When did you "see" it? I'd like to see some good feedback on this device.

OK this is what I know. At present only supports ATI, Nvidia version not out yet. The highest card it supports now is the HD4670. The image below shows 4670 on MSI. That score is not going to at present make it worth buying for any FX owner, sorry. Those with IGP's great option.

Hi guys, I had a few questions:

I'm trying to overclock my p7805u, but I'm not quite sure on the proper temps. It idles at about 43, but I've seen it go up to about 70 while gaming.

I was looking into upgrading something, most likely the cpu. Are there any quad cores compatible with this laptop?

Will 'undervolting' help lower the temps? Even though I hardly ever run the laptop on the battery (always plugged in) and even if I do unplug it, all I do is browse online and chat, never game.

If you can get a good undervolt under load you might drop as much as say 10F. Not sure what the plugged or unplugged has to do with undervolting.

Quads? It will physically fit in the socket it does have a higher TDP 45w vs the 25W you currently have. That might be pushing it. I do not know how quads work in FX's. I don't know if the BIOS can handle to get the benefits I just don't know.

So would I be better off getting a higher ghz dual core?

I say yes but that is my opinion only.

I think the best upgrade would be putting a SSD, in any computer the hard drive is the bottlenecked in both desktop and laptop platforms. You will notice everything will run faster and such an easy upgrade.
For cpu i remember i ask that question a few months back for a quad, i think it was a q9300 that we can upgrade in the lappy.
