I am currently playing Starcraft 2 and would like to upgrade my existing laptop to run the game near its full potential. Take into consideration that this is an Alienware model (so compatibility may be an issue)... here are my current specs
N- CORE 2 DUO
2.16GHZ T7400 4MB 667MHZ
9750 NVIDIA 7950 GTX WITH 512MB DAUGHTER
2x SEAGATE 100GB 7200RPM SATA NCQ
8X DVD+/-RW NEC AD-5540A REV 1
I was thinking that with the current processor and ram that I would be able to focus on possibly upgrading the video card. Definitely need some sound advice on what route to go and what card I should be looking at purchasing. Also with the addition of a more powerful video card, what other things I may need to focus on to support it, i.e. extra cooling or power supply. Thanks!
i have the same laptop and i upgraded to 2x 8700m (these are the only other cards you can put in the 9750) and the only other thing i would suggest is if you have the cash to blow you can always upgrade the processor to a Core2Quad mobile. If you do the most recent bios upgrade it should support it.
