Enough for Battlefield Bad Company 2? (and BF3?)

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Specs >

8800m GTS 512MB
4GB RAM
C2D T5450 1.83Ghz (Wil upgrade to a T8300/9300, possibly a C2X)
1920x1080 (Native)

Would like to replace my desktop with a lower end spec laptop, but still enough for gaming. Will this handle said games with reasonable FPS? WOuld prefer around medium settings but would go low for smoothness!

Its a Gateway P-6860FX so would it be compatible with say a GTX260m?

Yes. BC2 ran fine on my Pentium Dual Core @ 3.6GHZ and a 7800GTX.

I couldn't play it with a Phenom 2.2GHz quad core and a 8600GT on lowest settings.

At 1280x800 and a 2.2 GHz dual core CPU (i think T7500) and a HD 2600m (which is a little bit slower than 8600m), I could squeeze out 20-25FPS with lowest settings. But smoke and other effect led to some serious drop in FPS. It was playable but not enjoyable.

the 8800m GTS is more than double the power of an 8600m, so I would guess that I could get a bit more reasonable framerate once I upgrade the CPU. Sadly I just missed out on a T9300/SLI 8800mGTX laptop by getting outbid in the last 3 secs and not having chance to bid higher. That was a sexy Dell XPS

You're supposed to be getting fairly good performance with decent graphics
