lenovo y510 processor help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm definitely going to purchase the lenovo y510. Specs as follows
Core 2 Duo 5750 (2.0GHz, 2MB cache, 667MHz FSB)
2GB PC2-5300
250GB HDD
Intel X3100

I do have a couple of questions though if any knows. Can i expect to be able to play source engine games at playable settings on this laptop? I'm talking no eye candy and lower resolutions, just able to play, gotta have half life 2 and CS:S on the go.

I've read that there are drivers out for the X3100 chipset that enable hardware based T&L improving game performance by a noticeable bit, does anyone have first hand experience as to whether it's worth it or not?

you will be able to play CSS fine. its very CPU dependent compared to more modern games.

about the 'other' drivers I would just try them out. There are some that improve performance a little bit, but not significantly afaik.
