I am still tweeking my system a little bit at a time. because I'm trying to start as a E-tailor and be very active on this board I have been very busy. Some important notes about my system. I am useing this drive on ASUS N53JQ-A1 > Multimedia Entertainment note book. I have a core I7 740qm cpu. This note book has a Mobile Intel® HM55 Express Chipset. This notebook has 4 sodimm slots. I have 16gb of ram and asus says on there site that 16gb is the max but several bench marking programs say that this machine can handle 32gb of ram (side note I checked about getting 8gb chips you can get 8gb of 1333.mz but they are not a consumer product as of yet 1 8gb so-dimm chip cost between 600-1600 a chip depending on the speed way out of my price range at the moment.) it has a NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 425M with 1GB DDR3 VRAM dx11 I do not have any dx11 games but it plays all the dx10 and lower games that I have increabble at maxxed out setting and zero problems this gpu is 3d glass capable but asus does not give you a screen that will support that you have to have an external monitor with at least 120mh refresh rate and buy the glass and acssaries.The paging file has been turned off I also did a reg tweek that will never make a page file as well as turning it off in the advanced sysstem settings
I still have a lot of programs and drivers to load
