ACER ASPIRE 6920G UPGRADE?!


univrslsoljr

Recommended Posts

Hi! I am looking to upgrade my ACER ASPIRE 6920G laptop. It's an Intel Core 2 duo processor T5750 2.0 GHz, 667 MHz FSB, 2 MB L2 cache with an Nvidia Geforce 9500m gs graphics card (512 MB up to 2303 MB shared) and 4 GB of memory DDR2 and 320 GB HD.

Now I definetely want to upgrade both the GPU and CPU but I'm short on cash, so I would just like to know the best CPU and GPU I can get as well as which upgrade to actually buy to enhance my gaming performance. In short, I want to upgrade either with a new CPU or new GPU in order for my laptop to handle games much better.

Can you please give me suggestions or your experience with this?

Thanks in advance...

Also, if it is of any importance, I have the latest Nvidia display driver 179.28 and I have to say it overclocks quite well.

Oh yea, most importantly which I didn't mention before, I think my graphics card overheats or something because whenever I play games (Far Cry 2, COD 4/5, Crysis Warhead, NFS Undercover, Fallout 3...) I start out with lets say above 30fps (not on best settings of course) and then after some time it just freezes for a couple seconds and drops to like 10-15 fps. I have no idea why this happens (I think it might be the GPU or CPU temperature although it's actually not hot, maybe just warm).

So please help me with this as well if you can. Thanks!

Upgrading your CPU for games only is just a waste of your low budget. Your system is hardly VGA limited, so the only point what you should upgrade is the VGA only. The MXM-II VGA cards are fit to your laptop, but i'm not sure. You may ask an addict about this.

Also check the cooler: in the laptop you can not change the cooler, like in desktop PC, so if you got now realy hight temperatures on your VGA, then replacing with a higher one it cause more heat, what the cooler can not hold, so you risk that your laptop burn down to hell.

the best one you can get is probably the 9600m GT, which only has a little performence gain over a 8600m GT WHICH IS 9500m GS, as for 8600 suffers from the downclocking issues so does 9500m GS, I suggest you contact Acer for video card replacement since all 9500 and 8600 are defective.

I DO offer 9600m GT 512 GDDR3 editions for Acer laptops, but you are looking at about $350 USD just for the card, but this card does not suffer from the downclocking issues.

If you are interested, you can contact me at morrismurphy@gmail.com

Like they said, it's not worth upgrading. For your problem, it's not temperature related. What happen is that it downclocks for an unknow reasen. Look in this forum for the issue, there's a number of solution for it. It's the same problem as the 8600 user's have.

You need to have aspect ratio and screen resolution the same as your native which i think is 1366x768 and in 16:10. I dealt with that a while ago.
