I am the owner of an Asus g51vx-rx05 and I bought it from Best Buy about two years ago. I have had a question about the possible upgrades I could get with this laptop. I know it wont support a quad core processor. However, I heard that the 2.0 ghz P7350 can bottle neck the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M is this true? And basically I want to know if I can upgrade the RAM or Graphics Card on this guy. If I cant upgrade the graphics card would upgrading the processor be worth it for gaming. I am very curious because I am looking forward to Diablo 3 and SWTOR Online and I would like to run these games as best as possible all advice is accepted. THanks in advance.
There are no upgrades that make sense. A slightly faster C2D CPU is more of a sideways upgrade.
That GTX 260M graphics card is actually a good match for a 2Ghz C2D CPU. It's a well balanced combo.
Your best best is to just run the game at the settings that give you the best overall experience.
