    Hello beautiful people!

    In 2013 I bought my first ever clevo Sager NP9380-S (CP370SM3), and boy it was a beastly machine! Now Im not sure wether I should go for a new clevo or upgrade the components. If I could get your guys expertise and suggestion I would appreciate it! So this how my setup is:

    17.3" 120Hz 3D
    4930MX Mobile extreme edition
    16GB DDR3 Ram @ 1600Mhz
    GTX780M 4GB SLI GDDR5

    Even by today's technology, that's a fine system. What will you use the computer for 80% of the time?

    The 120hz is 50pin EDP IIRC. SLI supporting machine so no optimus.

    Sorry for the delayed reply and thank you for your inputs, much appreciated.. means alot! :vbthumbsup:

    I would say my level of expertise is pretty solid, what can I do to make this beast alive again? I might get someone else to do it if its too complicated. So lets hear it. :)

    For gaming I would say. With current build I can't max out today's games. High settings pretty much. What's your thoughts?

    Will I really be able to run the latest gpu 1080 on this? that would be awesome! :)

    If you're going for max settings on current and future titles, that's a tall order. The right mods might help you get some better video cards in there. Your CPU should handle most anything current just fine; I don't see a bottleneck there, at least.

    People have been experimenting with 1060s and that ilk. A 980M would certainly be doable.

    Yeah CPU is still really good as you said, no need to upgrade it. But just out of curiosity is the 4960X the highest CPU I could run? Not a significant difference there.

    980M seems to be the right choice as of now. But the question is run 980M SLI or a 1060? Not sure about that.
