Hey I currently have the 173X FX with the T7500 2.2ghz, I know its a p socket and wanted to know what is the highest ghz cpu I can stick in this thing without worrying about overheating or any other problems. Or if someone could tell me the order of acceptable cpu's up to a 2.6ghz I would greatly appreciate it.

The X9000 is the highest that will work with it that can overclock to 3.2ghz. or you can get the X7800 and X7900 which is less expensive and clocks between 3ghz and 3.2ghz as well

Anyone know if turbo memory is worth it? Do you see any difference then just running 4GB ram?

with turbo memory you add apps/games so they are cached and run faster/smoother. its managed via an intel app. Its alsp pretty cheap, less than $100.

I don't know a whole lot about overclocking but I want to know whats the safest configuration for my 8800m GTS 512mb for core bus and memory bus. Also when overclocking do you permanently keep it in the new custom configuration or do you only tweak it when your playing games that demand it?

Just got my 171xl fx in Monday. It's as fast as my system listed below.
I love it so far. Only thing I don't like about it is the screen has reflections in it and it is 1080p but does not seem as clear as my acer al2216w which only goes up to 1600 x 1200. What gives with these screens? Does anyone else have this same problem?

Is the resolution turned up all the way? May be because it's so small that it has to compress a bunch of pixels in one spot and so on
