G53 sx a1
I am looking at upgrading the RAM and adding a SSD.

As far as I was aware, when purchasing the computer, it should have came with 12 Gb RAM DDR3 @ 1333MHz. Looking through the other posts, I decided to run HWiNFO and found out that I do have 12 Gb RAM but at 667MHz. Now that is a problem in my opinion as it is not quite what I purchased but it's too late now as the computer is old already.

I could not find exact details if this model actually comes with a designated space for the second hdd/ ssd or if the DVD bay needs to be replaced with the hdd/ ssd. I saw that some other G53 models can have a second internal hdd with an optional tray.

Could anyone offer any thoughts/ advice on the two topics?

BTW I am considering either adding either a 250Gb samsung 840 evo or a 500Gb ssd of the same make. I was also reading that the cloning of the existing data to the samsung ssd might not be as easy with the provided software as there are two partitions.

Thank you,
RS
