Just To Be Sure

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I will probably be getting an M14x soon and want to review the specs before ordering. I want to make sure it will run the games I want at the settings wanted. Here are the specs gaming wise-

i7 2630QM w. 2.0GHz @ 2.9GHz Turbo Boost
W7 Home Premium
4GB DDR3 RAM @ 1600MHz
1.5GB DDR3 GT 555M
7200RPM HDD
900p screen

And the games w/ settings wanted

Maxed out
Halo CE
Halo 2 Vista
KOTOR 1 & 2
SW Battlefront 1 & 2
L4D

Medium/High
GTA 4
Bad Company 2
Black Ops/COD 4/ WAW
Skyrim

Will my laptop support these games at the wanted settings? Thank you

Here's a very useful site for integrated graphics performance: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-...ist.844.0.html

Here is your specific one


You should be fine with the medium/high games, but maxing out the ones you have mentioned I'm not too sure about.

My sig rig has trouble maxing out some of those games (aka console ports BC2 and BO, but GTA4 plays perfectly.)
But maybe that i7 can do a better job with them.

But for the most part, it'll play them on med/high settings.

What about those easier games though? Will it max out Halo 2?
post #5 of 8
Easily.

E4500 and 4850 maxed them out. But Halo 2 is a pain to play on PC, it's got crap graphics that hurt my eyes, and a tiny FOV that gives me headaches.

But the rest like Star Wars and L4D? Sorry, I'm coming from integrated graphics.
post #7 of 8
It'll do fine with the rest of them. It'll max most games from 2008 and earlier, while med/high for 2009 and future.

I was just wondering before finalizing. I thought GTA 4 was really tough to run w/ laptops.
Can't wait to play those games.
