Which Upgrade Is Best! Tags: Computers Laptops Last response: December 22, 2009 6:56 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share originunkn0wn December 22, 2009 5:05:57 PM I'm looking at purchasing 2 computers that are almost identical. They differ very slightly, are both gaming computers and cost the same. Option 1) Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T9900 / 6MB L2 Cache, 3.06GHz, 1066MHz FSB Single 1GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 280m (1GB Total of GFX) Option 2) Intel® T9600 45nm "Montevina" Core™2 Duo 2.8GHz w/6MB L2 On-die cache - 1066MHz FSB SLi ENABLED DUAL (2) 1024MB PCI-Express nVIDIA GTX 280M's (2048MB Total) w/GDDR3 DX10 Video Cards Which would be my better option to choose for a final configuration? Is the difference going to be even noticeable? Both configurations would be 4GB DDR3. Thank you for your help. PS.

However, depending on the games you are playing, you may notice a difference with the GPUs. As long as your games can use SLI, two cards will be better than one. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Laptops & Notebooks>Which Upgrade Is Best!> Related ressources: ForumWhich Nvidia card is the best upgrade ?
