I want to improve my gaming performace... - Page 3

It isn't possible to upgrade anything on most of the laptops except the RAM. Try using Razer Game Booster 3.6 and adding up some more RAM can help, but not that much.

Depends on the laptop.

My Alienware laptops handle games excellently.
Infact My M14X handles everything I want to play and mostly at max graphics but I got a new one because I wanted 1080P and to be able to play games in 720P eyefinity, which my new M17X R4 will be able to do, and I wanted an i7 for video editing.

laptops aren't overall bad for gaming, its that most aren't equipped with a discrete GPU.
But ones that are and have admiral GPU power can be usable for gaming.
Lapotaps like the MSI GT70/60, Alienware M1#x series, Clevo NP rebrands, and Asus ROG G7# and g5# all carry GPUs worthy of gaming.

My personal new laptop is an i7 3630QM, with a Radeon HD7970M graphics card. with 12GB of DDR3 1866mhz RAM it should benchmark well above a GTX 570 reference desktop card.
Considering the GTX570 was the first Nvidia card to do 3screen surround on a single card(galaxy made one that did that) a laptop of my caliber is powerful enough to compete with 2~3year old desktop builds. which many people do still have.
Granted the laptop costs an obsurd amount, but it is capable of gaming at the highest settings for many current and slightly older games.

Many companies do give you options to customize in a gaming laptop. MSI and Alienware both do that very well.
Its limited yes, but it isn't worthless for gaming.
the GTX780M will be capable of destroying the GTX580 desktop card, isnt't that impressive?

There is a lesson to be learnt here- do not buy laptops for gaming.

No no, I am saying that I don't choose whether we buy laptops or tablets or desktops, I just see what I have and try and sap out as much as I can out of it for gaming.

Now I have decided to buy 8GB Transcend JetRAM DDR3 PC3-12800 1600MHz SO-DIMM for my laptop. Yes, it is a laptop model that I am buying. Is this good enough? biggrin.gif

8GB 1600Mhz is ideal.

This all sounds good but don't forget to upgrade the fans as lap tops tend to run hot and if you over clock it. It may go in to melt down and the you will have to buy a new one or build one.
post #27 of 55
Other then RAM and adding SSD you can not so much. Overclocking the GPU is probably the biggest performance gain you can get from the Laptop.

How can you suggesting someone especially the like of him to overclock laptop's gpu? Overclocking laptop's gpu is riskier compared to desktop's gpu. Personally, I won't do it because I could risk my entire system.
post #29 of 55
alright here we go

1. Overclocking GPU/CPU on laptops, Generates alot of heat always will no matter what you do..
A. in your case with not having any knowledge of overclocking i would not suggest it ALTHOUGH, We here at OCN are of course here to help in any way we can and to the best of our ability to help you get the most or give you ideas...such as this thread is doing

2. Best be is to just add more RAM and get that ssd optimized...best bets...
A. This is because of the entry level you are currently at with hardware knowledge Which is where everybody starts out, learn about what you own the components and understand each function and you will be able to dive even deeper into the tech that goes into computers

3. You can if you are willing to do research on your laptop use google to
A. Look at what your laptop can handle in overclocks.
B. Find information from other owners and users who have done different modifications/used different tools to make it that much better
C. Completely ignore everything and search instead for something that will give you entertainment such as, showers in Germany or whatever
This i know seems off and out there but in regards to the other posts becoming bashing and some having negative vibes, i did it in this way instead...


So throw in some more RAM, throw in an SSD for overall performance of running applications (such as opening and file handling) , use Nvidia experience to allow it to set the game to the optimal settings for your computer, game booster shut off or hibernate applications that are either in the foreground or background and lessen the footprint on hardware use....
and um just learn about the laptop in general and in professional fields...
its a descent laptop....
Heck i have played on an intel atom asus 1015pn (netbook) Bad Company 2 and day of defeat source on it online with minimal graphic settings....still enjoyable gameplay...not the most visually striking still fun though...

I am not aware of any variant of the Acer 5755G with only 2 GB of RAM. Most likely the OP was confusing the graphics card's memory for the system memory. Chances are that the OP's laptop already has 4 GB of RAM, and as such the upgrade to 8 GB will make no noticeable difference in gaming performance (buying it was a waste of money; sorry to be the bearer of bad news). The biggest performance increase in terms of gaming will come from overclocking the graphics card. However, the OP doesn't seem to be too familiar with PC hardware and in doing so (overclocking) he/she might encounter problems that might seem difficult to resolve for a novice (such as what to do when an overclock is unstable).
