    Not the answer your looking for mate but you might want to consider also adding a couple 2GBx2 SODIMM sticks in lappy...Oh but wait you said you had x86 system, so I suppose you're maxed out already, eh?

    @omega91. then i would suggest you do an x2 with a nvidia card. The optimus technology would give you great fps boost

    As far as I understand 32 bit mobo is only capable of handling 2 GB of RAM. 64-bit MOBO is 8+

    @Omega91 nope. The speeds for the converter reduces the bandwidth to usb size. You will get a lot of performance lose.

    Hi, i was thinking about this ...
    This notebook will work with diy vidock ?
    Sony Vaio VPCF1290x ?
    corei7 - 6gb ddr3 - gt330m !

    Witch card is better than gt330 to plays 1920x1080 games ?
    5770 ? gtx 460 ? or more any ?
    I want a better card than gt330m that works with this notebook and
    performs GOOD with 1080p gaming !
    Thanks

    @donis,

    People have found that the gtx 4xx series works best with DIY Vidock. The most popular on this forum is the 460 due to its high performance at a reasonable cost.

    Yes, the gtx 460 has a mini-hdmi output
