Hello, new here, been lurking and learning.
I have a two week old G75VW and I just finished upgrading the ram to 32 GB. I bought the Corsair Vengeance ram and installed it, thanks to the tutorials and tear-down manuals here. It really wasn't that hard. Also added a Sandisk Extreme 240GB SSD, again, using the knowledge gained here and it went smoothly,

Any other upgrades that are recommended??

Thanks for all the great info!

Paul

you can change the wifi card if you're not satisfied with its performance (i found that my atheros can support up to 150mbps, if it's connected to the right AP); unless you need to go further and void warranty in order to change the cpu (unfortunately gpu is difficult and expensive to be upgraded).

you can take a look here (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?28758-GUIDE-G55-G75-Upgrade-Notes&p=220259&viewfull=1#post220259) for some system arrangements. you can also try this (http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?31265-To-SSd-or-not-to-SSD.-A-look-into-ram-caching-on-a-stock-drive.&p=245339&viewfull=1#post245339) to see if it worked well for you.

if you are in warranty, i suggest you do not change wifi card.

I don't plan to do that upgrade. I have the BB extended warranty as well. Accidental damage warranty has saved me a time or two! But thats another story...

If you switched to 32 GB you've already voided the asus warranty correct?
