    Wish I'd be that lucky lol, it's a 001. Just stuck a P7350 in place of the T6400, added a 250GB HDD along the WD5000BPVT it came with, and so far so good. Need to look into a battery tho, the AS07B42 it came with seems to be on its last legs, it discharges in about 5-10 minutes.

    Came with a 1680x945 panel btw, but manually set it to 1920x1080 through the NVIDIA Control Panel.

    If you want the most performance out of it I would upgrade the cpu to a either a T9900 or x9100, screens aren’t pretty good on them ain’t they

    I'm going with what's available on here. I did find a T9400, which should be more than enough, but it's going to take a while until it gets here.

    Hi everyone
    I recently joined the forum as i came across a bargain Acer Aspire 8930g (T9550, 9700m) that i bought, i used to have this notebook and i loved it so much
    I saw this GPU listed for sale the other day
    [​IMG]
    It's a GTX280M M57TU N10E-GTX1 V1.0 1GB DDR3
    What do you think?
    Will it work on 8930g + 135w power supply?

    the 280x may not be worth the trouble, barely any faster really

    HD4650 (Acer OEM, 1GB DDR2) should work. I tested the card on my 8930G and it worked perfectly.

    8930G is Core 2 Duo + SATA II only, and Core 2 Quad for boards marked with MB.ASZ0B.004. No Arrandale mobos, only Penryn and Merom although I don't see why would you drop a Merom in there.
