How do I maximize the battery life on my laptop while i'm gaming? I already have it undervolted as far as it will go while still maintaining top cpu clocks. What i'm wondering about specifically is how to keep the graphics card from using too much power. I know it's an absolute wh*re with power usage. Anybody got any input? I know I could probably turn down the clocks.

But can it run Crysis?

turning down the clocks would be your best bet i think, unless you want to solder and manually undervolt that sucker...

I like overclocking more than actually playing video games.
