K so this is the deal guys i bought a 1g ram to add to my laptop making it a 2g ram

I know the processor [2.0Ghz AMD Turion 64 MT-37] definatelly works for my laptop cause of the comment i found but......

Which one ? the [2.0Ghz AMD Turion 64 Mobile MT-37] or [1.8GHz AMD Turion 64 Mobile ML-34]

They both have the same features only a little diffrence in frequenzy thing that stumped me was the prices i found Embarrassed

 

[2.0Ghz AMD Turion 64 Mobile MT-37] =$63.00Angry

[1.8GHz AMD Turion 64 Mobile ML-34] = $20.00Stick out tongue

 

If a .2ghz diffrence dont make much diffrence in speed or will be slower then what i have already i rather pass

i am about to get the 1.8GHz AMD Turion 64 Mobile ML-34 cause its way cheaper 3x cheaper

Also for the fact that mine is a: 2.0Ghz Mobile Amd sempron 3300+.....Going down to 1.8Ghz feels kinda wrong!?!?!Huh?

 

WHAT YOU GUYS THINK?!?!Confused

p.s--I had a post before named:

AMD Turion 64 ML-40 or AMD Turion 64 MT37 Lancaster 2.0GHz Processor..just a to let you know got most info there incase you guys forgotBig Smile

So are you saying that if i get a 1.8ghz one its just as good as if i got the 2.0ghz one i will see no change in speed

there will be small diffrence but, overall the diffrence of a .2 is really small. But going from the 3300+ to the 1.8 will seem like a big speed jump

The MT-37 will be slightly faster, will use 10 watts less power (increasing battery life), and should run cooler than the ML-34. Whether or not the MT-37 is worth $43 more than the ML-34 is open for discussion. Personally I would get the MT-37, especially since you know it will definitely work. Here are some pertinent excerpts that I ripped from Wikipedia for you, rtism:

Model naming methodology

The model naming scheme does not make it obvious how to compare one Turion with another, or even an Athlon 64. The model name is two letters, a dash, and a two digit number (for example, ML-34). The two letters together designate a processor class, while the number represents a performance rating (PR). The first letter is M for single core processors and T for dual core Turion 64 X2 processors. The later in the alphabet that the second letter appears, the more the model has been designed for mobility (frugal power consumption). Take for instance, an MT-30 and an ML-34. Since the T in the MT-30 is later in the alphabet than the L in ML-34, the MT-30 consumes less power than the ML-34. But since 34 is greater than 30, the ML-34 is faster than the MT-30.

Just to let you guys know I just installed my 1g ram to make it a 2g ram total and i see a improvment in the time it takes to respond from 78-59% ram usage to a max of 23-38% usage Big Smile....I have a gauge(widget) that tells me the ram/cpu usage perforamce

 

My cpu is coming soon and will let you know how that goes in the perforamce change and how hardAngry or easyWink it was to install it

btw atm it alternates from    100%-90%; 65-31% usage mostly in high usage area if buzy watching movies and/or multitasking...so weshall see Confused shalt we


Ps btw it says i need a thermal paste change anyone have any clue where i can get cheapest and most reliable one?

Many swear by Arctic Silver, but I prefer the less-expensive Arctic Alumina and have had great results with it. I look forward to reading about your CPU swap, rtism!

I use arctic silver 5, only because I have like 3 tubes and you dont use that much of it. You can pick it up at Radio Shack, but it is overpriced. Like $10 instead of $5ish. Worth it if you need it that day, but newegg has a ton here.
