Hello. I want to have some opinions about upgrade my notebook. It has the now the best I can get to it: - 920xm@3ghz - 180W AC Adapter (orginal from MSI - it's Delta Electronics charger not, some chinese or Dell's with changed cable) - HD5870M orginal MSI And I want to upgrade 5870M. I can have dell K5000M 4gb for ~205USD (let it be 210, because exchange rate is changing) Or GTX 970M from Clevo SM for 390$. What you would do ? Is the 970M almost 2x times better? I know that it has some impressive scores, and it's a cool card. My 5870M have now in stress max 64C so it's cool. I want to keep it down to 80-85C, nothing more, and good performance. I don't know if 970m would work, but gx and gt from 1 gen. are compatibile with almost anything I guess (because gx660 works with almost all cards, gx640 works with k5000m and k3100m and k4000m, 765m, so i guess that it also works with the 970m). Or I am mistaken ? Don't say to buy new or used other laptop - it works well for me, and I buy it for little money, so I want to maximise it without, wasting loads of cash. Is it possible to overclock k5000m still in gx? I know that it has some problems with coooling, but I take some copper radiators, take of the bottom case and stick it too my fan, so to keep it cool - and it's really cool now - cpu still got 80C in load (but it's 45nm 4c/8t i7 with 3ghz, so it needs to got a little hot with such a thin case), so I assume if my 5870M is so cool (60-64C), k5000M with small OC (maybe to 850/1500mhz), can do max 85C?
I work at Best Buy in the Computer and Tablets department and the general consensus between me and my co workers is that Acer has terrible build quality and is highly unreliable. However I would love to hear people who have actually owned Acers and that had the opposite to what I previously stated as I'm just looking for a budget laptop for my Dad.
