Bulldozer is a different Slot , look for a different CPU like a Phenom II or a Phenom Clocked at at least 2.3. That 1.8 Quad is going to be pretty slow for games.Originally Posted by Big-Pete
ok guys so ive just aquired an acer aspire M3201.
it has 2gb of ddr2 (2 1gb sticks)
but some good things its got a 9150e, adn has the capability to get 8gb of ram in the system
so what im thinking is:
6gb ram= 2 more sticks of this with the stuff thats already installed
SSD= OCZ 120GB Solid SSD
and possibly one of these 6670 1gb GDDR5
note the GPU is buss powered, as i dont want to put any more strain on the PSU.
what im thinking is how can i make it even faster,
the cpu is a 9150e and i think its am2 ????? ergo its a 1.8quad core, is there anything i can stick in there to make it even quicker???? also whats the difference between am2/am3/am3+??????
could i stick a bulldozer in the rig with the right cooling?!
i am on a budget mind.
