I would say it's a matter of preference, for under $800, your limited. I did manage to come up with one you might be interested in for what your looking for in a laptop under $800. COMPAQ Presario V6420US It has all the bells and whistles and then some. It's a Very Good laptop for the money.

Fan is constantly loud.

I don't know how old your laptop is but most of the time dust build up in the heat sink and you have to clean it. The best way to do it is open the laptop and clean it. Don't try to do it from outside you will make it worse.

Can my processor support my ram

RAM is not likely your problem. What games are you trying to play? It could be that your graphics card is underpowered for the games you are playing. You are not using your motherboard's built in graphics I hope. It could also be that your entire system us underpowered. You should check the minimum and recommended system specs for each game to make sure your machine is up to par. Even if it meets the minimum specs, you'd do well to make sure your system is more powerful than that as you will not likely have the best experience and will not be able to run the games at higher resolutions.

Maxing memory speed, GB or MHz more important?

I don't think a difference of 133MHz of memory speed will make a difference in your gaming performance either way. Also, you won't be able to use more than 3.5GB of memory if you don't have a 64-bit operating system. Finally, it'll be a rare person who actually notices a difference in using 8GB vs 4GB of RAM. So, in conclusion, just buy 4GB of 800MHz RAM and spend your money and your time on a good graphics card, if gaming performance is your main concern.

Upgrade cpu

you can at most upgrade memory, rarely video, but I never seen ugrading a CPU on a laptop, most of the time the CPU is soldered and the MB does not support upgrade.

My games every so often and i have to reset the console

did you mean to say that your games freeze up every now and then? I have a fourth generation manufactured 360 the ones produced after the red ring of death epidemic and I still rarely experience my console freezing up and have to reset the console. These machines use micro processors just like computers and are sort of bombarded with various pixels and other binary information which can overwhelm the processor at times as such as what could occur with your home pc or laptop this occurs primarily from the software (games) pushing the console to the limit. If you'll notice that this may occur only on certain games and some game programming may also have glitches upon release. You can connect to x box live and check for any updates which may be available to correct any glitches. Hope this helps

Which is better laptop deal?

Hi !!

Ofcourse 2.4 ghz is better than 2.1 ghz but its not a very big difference if price difference is more than 100$ than go for first one else second one is good and the most important thing i want to mention is that it all depends upon your needs you havent mention for what purpose you are going to purchase. But both are enough for gaming, daily use and for techie as well.

Hope that helps
