T6600 - E8435 Upgrade worth it?

Hey all i have an acer aspire 8735g laptop and was wondering whether or not changing the Intel core 2 duo T6600 @ 2.2Ghz with a Intel E8435 @ 3.06Ghz. I will be using the laptop for gaming and the current CPU is hitting 100% load the majority of the time during games.

Thanks

    I would not recommend this upgrade. Unless your desired CPU is supported by the BIOS, you are likely to have an expensive paperweight.

    Also, the stronger CPU will add more heat and stress to the system. Possibly even more than the system was designed for (assuming it works at all).

    Performance wise, you wouldn't see a massive increase in capability either. Some, but not earth-shattering. The other components would not change.

    Bottom line, keep your money and stick with what you have. You'll be happier in the long run.

    Good luck!
  2. Ah thanks for the reply ill start saving up for a newer system then :).
