    I understand the benefits of SSDs, but I don't know if it is the best time for me to upgrade to them. Maybe I can live without it for some additional time. I'll have to think about it during this weekend. Anyway, thanks for your help!

    I'm using Sapphire TriXX. It was recommended previously by other users of this forum, and if I remember correctly it is the only one that allows OC to our GPUs.

    Having problems with Sony VAIO C VPCCA15FG
    due to the GPU.

    AMD Radeon™ HD 6630M / Intel® HD Graphics 3000
    Switchable graphics ;
    Although in games , I'm able to switch and utilize the AMD Radeon™ HD 6630M and everything goes on smoothy but it seems that when it heats up to 60C (monitored using GPU-Z)
    The GPU starts shutting down as in ( GPU utilization 100% drops to 0% gradually ) which causes game fps to drop and performance drop as well.

    This happen just 5 mins the game started , and there's no way or solution that I can find online.

    Do need some help here.

    OK, I downloaded and used the unofficial patch and it solves the problem.

    Thanks

    EDIT: Now I have the problem that I cant control the volume and brightness with my FN key, any solutions?

    Hey! I have a VPCCA36FG since about a month ago.

    Suddenly when I tried my webcam it says "webcam not found". I think this has something to do with the driver. Sony website doesnt help me much, what am I supposed to do?
