Can anyone suggest me a gaming laptop with DVI-D? - Page 2

What monitor is it? You running 3D on it to require the 120 Hz?

EDIT: Never mind, I see it in your profile.

Are you ok with Maximum 100Hz using HDMI cable? Still smooth on gaming. I am using HDMI cable with custom resolution on laptop with nvidia card hooked up to external 120hz monitor. Run smooth on sport games and FPS games.

HDMI can't do more than 60hz @1080p, no matter what the box might tell you. The input won't accept it. I'm probably upgrading to a Catleap soon, as well. So, I'll be pushing for 100-120hz @1440p.

I think I'm gonna keep my desktop at this point. It's just frustrating lugging it around. I've been doing more LAN type stuff lately, so I thought the laptop would be a nice thing for me. The guy who was supposed to pick up my desktop was a no show.
In progress.

Why not build yourself a really small ITX gaming PC then? If you're going to lug your full sized monitor around, bringing along a ITX case, keyboard, and mouse won't kill you. I just built a ITX based i7-4770K and it has room for a full-length 300W video card if necessary. =)

I never said I was going to lug my monitor around. I just want it for when I'm at home. I have an ITX build already. Look at my sig rig tongue.gif

Ah ha!

I guess I don't completely understand your work flow then. When I'm home, I use my 3930K desktop with the big graphics card and big monitor. When I'm on the road, I use my Asus G750 laptop with the slightly smaller and less capable display. I have a reasonably good experience in both places, and I don't try to use the same machine or all purposes.

Sort of like you with the ITX and a laptop. Best of both worlds - two machines. =)

That's also really expensive. I don't have another $1000 lying around to throw at a laptop right now.
