Regarding cleaning system. I have very stable system and well runing 2x200gb Travelstars in Raid0 hd's. The reason i wanna upgrade is so i can play some latest games on higher res with more details. My x1900 has some issues with running games at all. And I Am pretty sure its an GPU failure after several fresh OS installation - from WinXp to Win7 Ultimate. On top of that tried over 10 drivers. Everything is smoth and nice up untill when i start any 3D game. Emulators is exception. And while I Am thinking about upgrading GPU why not go all the way and upgrade CPU
Even i cant run alot of games, and as for mobility x1900 drivers The best one I have yet found is the one from Windows Update.
The m5790 CPU is bottlenecked, and outdated. Ill be replacing my system soon.
As for the other issues:
the m5750 and m5790 are almost identical in every aspect
My 5790 runs 4GB ram (but only 3.25 is actually used by the board due to its limitation)
I have the 1.19w bios that will allow the m5750/m5790 to use 4GB ram ( there is a thread I have somewhere here for it)
make sure you remove any bios passwords before flashing the 1.19w, and dont flash your system if you are not running either the 5750 or 5790
