Hey guys... Fooled around with setfsb and even though there are settings for it to recognize the cpu speeds it does not work

GOOD NEWS though... Found a newer version Nvidia app that allows you to overclock the GPU

http://www.nvidia.com/object/nvidia_...ools_6.03.html

Let me know if it works for everyone... Works for me on Vista and Windows 7 X64

Yeah, I sure hope they do... If not, no worries. I got the 2yr Protection Plan from BB, so when Quad's are mainstream, my laptop might accidentally just fall out of my hands, and get run over by one of my consumers power wheelchairs (i work w/ mentally handicapped), and OOPS! Looks like I have to get a new notebook!

What's funny about that, is I told the geeksquad kid I was planning on that and his response was just, "me too dude..." lol!

So a very noob question, as I am one .

If I swap out CPU's for a faster one, would my FSB change? Like could I go with faster ram than the ram in my sig?

You can swap to a CPU that will up your FSB to 800Mhz but on your chipset you are limited to a 667Mhz Memory bus. So the answer is yes and no.

Got mine GatewayFX two days ago at local BestBuy. It has P8400 processor, 4GB ram and 1GB NVidia 88000M GTS video card.

I found this discussion while looking for HD upgrade and just like to thank you all for already answering some of my questions.

HD in my laptop is 320GB 7200RPM SATA, so I will try to get the same for Raid0.

ATM I have 5.2 windows rating because of processor, but I am not gonna change it as atm I need just faster HD and more room. (Current rating for HD is 5.9)

What model is that? That sounds killer, I wish we could mod our 6860fx's to have that card.

Does the 6831 officially support Vista 64bit OS? The reason I ask is that on the Gateway Website many of the drivers are 32bit only. If you cannot get all of the drivers from Gateway is there another source that is available.

Thanks
