    here a the situation not sure if the laptop is a AW area 51 Mx17 r1 or AW M17xR1 the reason on the back of the system there a label with "Alienware M17xR1" in the battery compartment a label with "Alienware Area 51-M M17X" also in the compartment a sticker with MB Revision A06, also A sticker WITH BARCODE PA8AN7827048 ; MB-F17WUXGABKRIPNTR1. the in formation on the memory is Kingston KVR800D2S0/2GR 74061736340 1.8V . so is this a AW area 51 M17xR1 or AW M17xR1, Im going to guess is a Pre Dell AW area 51 M17xR1 because I check the memory type is DDR 2 and DDR 3 are used in a the AW M17xR1. but I need a experts help. if so I can upgrade if is a AW area 51 M17xR1 system...and to what CPU,GPU and Memory Max.. the Laptop is connected to a LG 65" TV use by grandkids to play retro gamers with a emulator they having a blast with the old school games....

    thank you

    For emulation, your main need is a better CPU, which can be done with either the Intel QX9300 or the intel X9100. My vote is for the X9100, since most emulators really only benefit from dual core and not more than that. If you want ti to be a general purpose machine, definitely get the QX9300.
