and mine is

HP DV6-3050TX

  1. Best answer
    CPU wise,they are pretty much even.
    4GB RAM is enough for today's games/most apps, there isn't much of a difference between them unless you work with multiple pages of heavy Image/Video editing.
    5650M is more powerful than GT 425M.
    And for HDD,well its a personal choice.
  2. Thank you..........I will tell him the same so that he wont waste money unnecessarily :)

    and My laptop is running good but my desktop is due for an upgrade:-

    Need help in Upgrading my HP Pavilion a6450in:-
    Now it has:-
    Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4Ghz
    2GB RAM
    Nvidia Geforce 7100 128MB GPU
    320GB HDD
    LightScribe DVD Supermulti and another expansion slot left free

    Now I need to upgrade few components:-
    Nvidia GTS 250 1GB GPU
    LG Blu-ray Burner
    1TB HDD along with older 320GB
    Transcend USB 3.0 through PCI slot
    and A TV Tuner through PCI slot
    And a 500W PSU to run these instead of 250W factory fitted.

    1.Is it possible to do all these upgrades?
    2.Does fitting a higer watt PSU destroy the system?

    Ps. reply
