I may attempt to overclock if I wasn't satisfied with the performance, although I have no experience.
I will most likely buy a new rig after 3 years, right now I'm on a low budget since I won't be working full time until next year (uni student atm)
Right now I'm running on 6GB of ram on my HP DV7 laptop, and according to the performance gadget, I hardly utilize it as I rarely run programs in the background.
This is a unrelated but: my laptop has a i7 720QM processor, and it is beginning to spike when playing SC2 on LOW settings (I used to play on medium lag free), should I attempt to get help from someone or is this normal? Whenever I alt tab to check the gadget the processor is always at 100% when gaming and the fans roaring.
