can max out FEAR on 1024X768 when paired with a good C2D


if you would go for a gaming laptop
don't consider anything less than 8600GT

so look for 8600GT, 8700GT, 8800GTS, 8800GTX , 9500GS, 9650GS

keep in mind that current 9 series laptop GPUs are just a refresh of old 8 series cards

9300 same as 8400
9500 same as 8600
9650 same as 8700

if you don't mind 17" screen, grab a Gateway FX laptop (the one with 8800GTS) from BestBuy for $1350

Cool that looks great, but it looks like the Gateway FX sacrifices CPU power for the GPU.
post #43 of 48
Man O Man...Just get yourself a gateway FX. The cpu may be a little crappy but nothing a upgrade can do for later on. I have one myself which was a replacement for a Quad core desktop at college. Having a desktop is too much of a pain to move between locations when you are in college.

With my setup I score 9896 in 3Dmark 06
