View Full Version : Upgrading GS74x (basic model)

Hey everyone.

Is there an ASUS preferred SSD manufacturer? How much are the larger ones?

I'm trying to improve performance and I think my 8G ram and 2G GPU will hold out a while longer but in the meantime I've heard SSD's are the way to go.

Any input is appreciated!

Thank You,

No, Asus doesn't have a preferred manufacturer for SSD upgrades. Any 2.5" SSD should theoretically work. Since the G74 is SATA III compatible, it makes sense to get a SATA III drive.

Many of us around here use SSDs in our G74s. Intel and Crucial seem to be very commonly-used and well-reviewed....I wouldn't hesitate to recommend either of those. You can research pricing on sites like Newegg and Amazon.
