/In be4 terminator jokes


Anyways, I have an Hp DV7 laptop. Here are my specs:
Hp Pavilion dv7 Notebook PC
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 cpu m450 @2.40GHz 2.4 GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 6.00 GB (5.80 GB usable)
I think I have about 600 total GB of memory on the computer with about 300 of it available.
Video card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650

I currently play starcraft 2, but I generally keep my settings at medium to have the game running at a solid speed. If I turn them up to high it slows down a bit, but its not unplayable. I feel like my video card and my processor are holding me back, in gaming and in general as well. Since the video card would be really difficult and expensive to have swapped (i think) i do want to invest in a better processor.

Theres a bunch on newegg.com, but Im not sure which one to go with. Id like it to be powerful and Im willing to spend up to $200. Any suggestions or help please?

You should take the Motorola 68000. It is a superb chip running at 7.15909 MEGAHERZ !!!

You even get to run splendid games like Doom with a colour pallette of 4096 DISTINGUISHABLE COLOURS !!!

Intel ? Screw that alien technology. What's the point in having a chip that plays Battlefield 3 if the Motorola 68000 can do it without ESRB ?

Upgrading your processor will barely affect gaming performances. A lot of games run on 2 cores, so having a quad core won't help... You should upgrade your video card. But since it's a laptop, you're screwed.

Yeah, sorry to say it, but you cannot upgrade a laptop CPU without basicallt taking apart the whole thing. Of course, that doesn't matter, because you can't even buy laptop CPU's anywhere other than ebay.
