Hi TH community,

You don't need to know the ram speed, cuz nobody in OEM biz will overclock the ram. A simple way to determine the ram speed is divide the cpu fsb by half. That's stock. i.e.

T7350 is 1066mhz FSB / 2 = ~667mhz DDR2.

This chart helps you decide on the mobile cpu:

The fastest gaming lappy in your selection would be HP Pavilion dv7-1070 with NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT.

thx for the response :)
I'm leaning towards Aspire 15,4" 5930G-734g32MN....
Though I'm not sure....
The Toshiba Notebook Satellite A300-16I seem fine,

HD3650 mobility has performance little above 8600m GT
but it's 180 Euro less.... Is it worth it?
It will be about 4 days before I get the money so I guess I'll have time figuring that out (though any suggestions are more than welcome)

Thank you for helping me out :)

Not true at all - my XPS M1710 is running DDR2-667 with a 667FSB (T7600). Most newer laptops use DDR2-800 or DDR3-1066 for the higher end stuff (they tend towards a 2:1 ratio), with DDR2-667 reserved for more budget models.

ya that is true some laptops have a 667 fsb or 800 so if 800 in half is 400 your not running 400mhz ddr2 you would be using either ddr2 667 or 800
