|Hey guys I have a Dell M1730 that uses this as its CPU|
but because I have had so many problems with my computer over the years they are allowing me to get an Alienware M17x. All the components are upgrades but I'm not sure about the CPU. Instead I'm getting
Intel® Core™ i7-920XM Processor Extreme Edition
(8M Cache, 2.00 GHz).
Is this an upgrade? I run 2.8GHz normally but now I run at 2 GHz until it goes into turbo mode, which I game constantly and I have been told that overclocking will shorten the life span of the CPU(drastically). Any help will be appreciated, PLEASE help me before they send me something that could be worse.
