    New Processor...help please...

    I'm looking to get a new processor for my Asus G50v laptop for under $100. The currently existing T5750 at 2.00GHz just isn't cutting it. It's alright, but it's not great. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I got it cheap at best buy. My GPU is fine...i have the nvidia geforce 9700gt. It works jsut fine. And it has a 7200rpm disk. It doesn't feel slow...it just lags a little bit in really intense parts of games. COD World at War in particular.

    Sorry to say, but you are not going to find anything more powerful for $100. Mobile cpus just cost to much.

    Here are some prices you are likely to expect at other shops.

    As you can see the only thing for $100 is a cpu that isn't even as good as what you have.
    Yeah...that's what Ive been finding. I was hoping that some one might know where to get one cheaper...but I'll probably just have to fork over more $$$. Thanks for the link tho.
