Recommended Posts

As my buddy's from the FFM know, im gonna get a new laptop.

It's a new ASUS W90(im taking laptops because the last desktop i had, i fried its GFX card trying to max out IV.)

So, here are the specs, the laptop should go in America first(at my dad's colleague from work),then a shipment to here.

Specs:

CPU: Core 2 Quad 9000

GPU: HD 4870x2

RAM: 6 GB

HDD: 320 GB

OS: Vista Home Premium 64-bit(gonna change it to Ultimate)

Fingerprint Reader

Wifi,LAN,BT are integrated.

For the rest.

Take that rayboob :P

lol UPS.

when i had my laptop i barely ever used it without the charger. cos when its off the charger (its ASUS F3JC btw) it will go into like a power saving mode. like, gives the graphics only 128mb memory instead of 512 = massive lag. wasnt really a gaming laptop to start with (1.66 core 2, 7300) but yeah lol.

you could get a desktop and not overclock? :P

That is one wicked labtop there mate.

If you ever do, get me one. :P I will be forever in your debt lol.

I'm just kidding there. But anyways that is one really high end labtop there. Dell laptops are okay, but I wouldn't count on it if it's for just gaming, you'd be better off using a Desktop PC, which is more for gaming than anything else. But I think the laptop Steam's getting seems it could handle it without no exception (Except for IV, which I wouldn't know much about).

And for the price of that laptop, it must be a big ass price for whoever is paying for it. You are lucky.

I think IV will run pretty easily in that. It has pretty much more than what IV demands.

The system requirements for IV are a load of bollox without patches, and even then they aren't especailly accurate.

@ Mpilk:

Custom built remember that, their builds suck balls, also they don't have ATI's GFX cards, that's why i hate em.

I should be getting some news by Thursday.

Personally I prefer Nvidia gfx cards to ATi

Mine still beats it in everything except perhaps the GPU, (4870X2 > GTX 275) and the fact that it's a laptop. But it was also $200 more.

Nice man.
