    and i am wondering if there is an easy way to overclock it with a program, i am new to the overclocking as my last computer was a single core amd athlon 64 and i have never tried to overclock anything.

    Not sure about that one. Asus only supports OCing on CPUs with unlocked multis...this one is not unlocked, so you would need a program that OCs the FSB like "setFSB". But in order for that to work you need to know what system clock the system uses...

    Here is a good guide that may help you:

    would you recommend i just upgrade my processor to a intel core 2 duo running at 2.8 ghz with 6mb L2 cache or would overclocking be just as good?

    First off, it is NEVER a good idea to overclock a laptop. That's a very fast way to kill it because laptops are very limited on the amount of heat they can disperse. And if they find out you've overclocked it, you're screwed warranty wise.

    Secondly, laptops can be very limited in how far you can upgrade the CPU's. You would need to do a few things. 1. See if other laptops in that same model series use that processor and 2. Make sure those laptops have the same mobo's/chipsets as yours.

    Or 3. Download and run CPUz and see if it will give you the motherboard model #. If you find out the model # and chipset, you can see what CPU's it will support without a BIOS update. Laptop manufacturers are rarely going to release BIOS updates and if they do, it isn't so you have more CPU options.

    It can be done, but there's much more to it than just slapping a new CPU into the thing.

    Hope that helps.
