How would this laptop do gaming?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at an hp dv6t laptop. The specs on it is an i3 2330m (2.2ghz), 6gb ram, 1gb 6770m. Would this be able to play games such as crysis 2 or battlefield 3 on medium settings? After a coupon and tax it would cost around $690 which is a pretty good deal. I'm open to all opinions. As a note I'm trying to keep the cost below $800 after tax.

Pretty solid specs for a medium range laptop.

Games like cod can be maxed out, but Crysis 2 and BF3 will have to be at medium or lower.

low to medium on some things depending on the resolution


Keep in mind that mobile cards are not the same as desktop versions of the same name...so performance wise this is probably a bit under the performance of a desktop 6670.

crysis 2 and bf3 are both pretty demanding though, many other games it would run at a mix of medium and high settings just fine thumb.gif

Okay so it sounds like a decent computer. Its at least an upgrade from my integrated graphics right now. What about selling my current laptop? Anybody know somewhere other than ebay or craigslist? Is gazelle.com okay?
