    I want to upgrade my laptop PC's processor and RAM.

    Currently sitting on an AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile Tech TL-50 1.60 GHz processor and 1 gig installed RAM.

    I have a 32 bit operating system and currently run Windows 7.

    I'm looking to upgrade my processor to something 2 GHz or higher and up to about 2 gigs of ram.

    My computer model is an HP Dv6324

    I was looking at AMD processors and they seem to have some decent ones for $60 or so, but I wanted to see if you guys had any good suggestions for a good CPU and maybe an idea of how much it would take to do an upgrade on average:x:

    Thanks :wavey:

    Max out the memory first and see where that gets you - two DDR2 PC2-5300 modules will put you at the max for that notebook. The trouble of finding a compatible CPU, installing it, dealing with more heat/power usage - all for about 400MHz of performance - will almost certainly not be worth it. If you are still set on trying to do the CPU upgrade, a Turion TL-60 should be a drop-in replacement.
