    Hey guys,

    Another short question - the reseller that I'm buying from is offering to replce the stock 16GB (2x8GB) DDR4 2133MHz RAM with a few other options which include

    • 16GB (2x8GB) Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 2133MHz+$49
    • 16GB (2x8GB) Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 2400MHz+$59
    • 32GB (4x8GB) Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 2133MHz+$169
    • 32GB (4x8GB) Kingston HyperX Impact DDR4 2400MHz+$179


    Is it worth upgrading to the Kingston HyperX impact RAM?

    No, unless you like the thought of wasting money. If you've got money to spare put it toward something meaningful like a faster cpu or the gtx 980m graphics card. You won't see any performance difference messing with your ram given the laptop already has 16gb. Speed increase in ram translates to no benefit to most end users, and doesn't help fps with 99% of games. However, If you use specialist ram intensive applications you may derive some benefit.

    Like Grantman said If you've got money to spare put it toward something meaningful like a faster cpu or the gtx 980m , id go for a GTX980 ,

    Hi guys,

    Thanks for the advice, I have been seeing a lot of you have been advising me to get a GTX980 instead of the GTX970. I understand that the GTX980 is much better but the price step up is something that I find rather hard to swallow, the most compelling reason for my to get the GTX980 is that it would make the laptop more future-proof. What's the estimated difference in the future-proofing between the 970 and the 980? 2 years? 3 years?

    As others have said, the performance jump between a 970M and 980M is quite noticeable. I'd say about 15-20% increase in performance.

    As for longevity, it depends on how demanding the next gen games are more importantly how optimized they are. For example, the latest DOOM gives me a stable 60FPS on my 980M. It has good graphics and is properly optimized for PC. For Witcher 3, it is good overall but it's still difficult for me to get a constant 60 FPS everywhere with Ultra settings. (NVIDIA Hairworks OFF). As you can see, this game was released well over an year ago, and has received numerous patches. But the fact here is that the game is VERY demanding on GPU.

    On 980M:

    If you're looking for a short answer - 1080p gaming and 30 FPS; should be good for *at least* an year or most probably 2 from now.

    1080p and 60 FPS; depends on how demanding the game is.

    If you're willing to forego on FPS and graphics a bit (on 1080p), you can settle for perfect 2 years or more I'd say.

    So I'd *strongly* suggest to cut back on additional accessories and upgrades (RAM, SSD etc.) as you can easily upgrade them later for much cheaper prices and get the 980M *if possible*. The performance jump is worth it.

    Hey guys! I'm in the US now and typing this post from my new G752!! I'm so in love with this baby! One thing I need to check with you guys is how do I ensure that G-sync is one/working on this laptop?
