I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A:New gaming pc specs

Looks like a nice system! Two things came to mind as I had a once over.

1. I'd do some research on that PSU. I haven't heard of that maker (which doesn't say much, there are a LOT of makers I have never heard of). No-name PSUs are a headache. See what some others say about it. It is possible that the one you have chosen is a big name maker, I honestly don't know.

2. Why get a ATI video card? I actually prefer ATI over Geforce myself (the Canadian in me), but if you are going to get an SLI motherboard, you may as well keep your future upgrade options open. Recommend getting a Geforce, so that down the road if you want to stick another in there you can link them up. Why tie your own hands?

Also, another thought... I know I said I only had 2 thoughts but.....

That Venus12, how loud is it? My last computer had a volcanoe heatsink/fan and it was like a jet engine in my living room. Drove me INSANE. :knock:

Ok, I am a novice when it comes to hardware. I am looking for a something to Boost my gaming to the point where The Elder scrolls: Oblivion would run fine on my system. Right now everything is factory. So I am wondering what I need to increase my capabilities to that point, Which I stated earlier. I am willing to spend 150$ right now for upgrades, and need to know what I would need for the job. I wrote down my specs when I joined. I dont know if you can see them,but if you need them I will be happy to post them. I am thinking I need a very nice video card and more ram. But how much ram and what video card? And maybe a price on how much I would have to spend. I am taking all recommendations. In advance I appreciate the help and advice.

Thanks.
 

A:Gaming Specs

I cannot find any information or pics of your system at the instance, so I cannot say anything definite.
These two should be good for you: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139008 + http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161287
The 4670 will in a few weeks be replaced by 5650, which will perform the same or better, cost a little less and produce less heat, consume less power and have DirectX11 capability (which you don't need/can't even use for Oblivion, but it'll be good to have).
More RAM would help, too, but I really can't know what kind as I can't find any info on things. Please post back in this thread soon so that I get an subscription update and won't forget to get further into this when I have a bit more time.

Hi, i was looking to build a gaming pc and have put together the following as a plan but wondered if it will be any good, will it play new games and at high settings\ or would you recommend any adjustments?, I have a tight budget so any help is appreciated.


CPU ? AMD Phenom II x4 Black Edition (AM3, 3.20GHZ, 8MB Total Cache), Operating SystemWindows 7 Home Premium (32bit), 4 GB Kingston DDR2 Ram, 500w Power Supply
Asrock K10N78M Motherboard, Gigabyte ATI Radeon HD 4670 1GB PCI-E Graphics Card
500GB S-ATA 7200RPM Hard Drive, Sony Optiarc 24x SATA DVD Burner
X Blade Silver ATX casing, 2 x Akasa AK191SM fans and standard Heatsink and CPU fans
 

A:Help for specs on gaming PC

Drop down to a Phenom II X2 55x series CPU and get a more powerful video card instead. Also, what're the specs on the PSU? (brand and model number)

Lastly, I'd recommend the Cooler Master HAF 912 and the NZXT Beta EVO as better cases. Choose whatever fits your budget best, but the HAF 912 is the better of the two IMHO.

I ordered a gaming PC about a year ago and now want to upgrade due to a faulty video card. This is what my PC would look like if I upgraded now;

motherboard: Msi 770-G45

Ram/memory: 4 GB DDR3

Graphics card: Geforce GTX 260

PSU: hec XP1080 1080W Continuous @ 40°C ATX12V / EPS12V CrossFire & SLI NVIDIA HYBRID-SLI Certified Modular Active PFC Compatible with Core i7 Power Supply

So, are these parts all compatible, is my motherboard compatible with a directx 11 gpu? Please reply if they look compatible or not. Have a nice day!

Yes

Yes, insofar as motherboards aren't dependant upon which DirectX API the card is capable of utilising. Graphics card compatibility is dependant upon the slot interface the motherboard uses.
Your MSI board uses PCI-E graphics slot
GTX 260 uses PCI-E graphics slot
Match made in heaven

The GTX 260 isn't DirectX 11 capable, so why DX11 is an issue is a moot point.

I'd recommend a better graphics card.

If you are on a budget, you probably wouldn't need 16GB memory for gaming just yet. A $60 savings on 2x4GB modules, would go along way in getting a better graphics card. I'd recommend at least Radeon HD 7790 or the newer release Radeon R7 260X.

A:Help Required for Gaming Specs

I would recommend at least 4GB of RAM (any more than 4GB of RAM you will need a 64bit version of Windows).

Any reasonable Nvidia or ATI graphics card will do.

Although if you're doing this in the next two years I would recommend waiting before you buy because the price of everything will drop and the speed will increase.

Processor wise I'd go for an Intel i5 at the minimum or any other Intel quad core equivalent (you might be able to get away with a mid to high end i3), although the chances are an i5 will be considered slow in a couple of years so buy it nearer the time of building if you have the chance, it'll be cheaper and faster.

I hope this helps.

Hi everyone, I'm looking at getting my first computer specifically for gaming; but I haven't got much of an idea of what specs I need and what I can get for the amount of money I want to spend.

I'm wanted to spend around £500-£600. I'd want to be able to play new games and ones which will be coming out in the relative future (mmorpgs/fps etc) and games such as skyrim, battlefield, hitman, crysis 3, gta & far cry 3 -which I know require a good graphics card etc. would it make sense getting windows 8 or not?

can anyone give me details as to what specs I need to look for and/or recommend me any computers in the £500-£600 range?

thanks guys
 

A:Gaming computer specs?

Windows 7 is probably a better choice. It doesnt matter though. This is what I put together: http://goo.gl/fkXSku. Add in the Corsair TX650V2 PSU, I forgot to include it in the cart. The cart is on Amazon by the way. It is a bit over budget, but it will play your games at very high, if not max settings.

I was thinking about buying a LCD monitor but I heard that they arent as great for gaming as CRTs because of refresh rates and clearness. Still my bulky CRT needs to go so i was just wondering wat kind of refresh rates i want and contrast ratio and so on. I use my comp for gaming with games such as CS:S, BF2, AOEIII, and Oblivion as well as for casual use such as web browsing typing up word documents ect. Please help.
 

A:What specs for gaming monitor?

How much can you spend?
Remember the basic rule: You get what you pay for

There are some great LCD´s on the market, but if you want very good image quality, and no ghosting, you have to pay for that. Also, to get the best image quality, you should use the LCD at its native resolution. Of course you can use it at other resolutions, but the image quality won´t be the best.
Unfortunately, if you want a big monitor (17" or 19") and want to use the native resolution, you need a powerful computer to run the games smoothly at those high resolutions.

If you, like me, don´t have a cutting edge machine, look for a 15" LCD. Its native resolution its 1024x768. That should tax too much your machine.

A:Are my PC specs good for gaming? What to improve?

The CPU and memory are fine. The only thing to upgrade would be your GPU. You might also have to get yourself a decent power supply to be able to run the GPU. What's the power rating of your current PSU?

Hi I'm new to this but I've been looking at a cheap gaming PC and I found one for about £500, I need to know if these specs are good to run games like bf3 and skyrim at good settings.

AMD FX-4130 3.8GHz Quad Core Processor

8GB ram

500GB hard drive storage space

Nvidia GTX 650 1GB Graphics card

Asus M5A78L-M LX V2 motherboard

DVD-RW

500w PSU

I can't really pay much for my PC but is this okay for the amount I'm paying and can you please suggest any upgrades that are affordable also what system settings can I run on games like bf3.

Thank you for the help

A:Good specs for a new gaming computer

Well, those games will not require anything hard core in terms of specs. But, to answer your question, it all depends on the particular games you play and, at what resolution you like to play at. So, no-one will be able to give you a one size fits all gaming spec. But, here is what I'd look for:
Quad Core CPU, 4GB RAM,Dedicated GPU and 7200rpm HDD.

You will need to provide us with the following if you want us to recommend specific parts.

A:Good specs for gaming PC? First time

Did you already purchase the items above or is that what you have in mind for purchasing? What is your overall budget for your Gaming PC? What types of games are you going to be playing on this PC? The AMD FX-8350 is a good CPU, but if you want any kind of future proofing, I would suggest getting an Intel. If you let us know how much you can spend, we can help you build one that will be better for future games.
Also, no you do not need a SSD (Solid State Drive), but it will make boot times and load times faster. My suggestion with that, is purchase a smaller SSD (120GB maybe) for your operating system and also purchase a larger (1TB+) Hard Drive for everything else (applications, storage, etc).

A:Wondering if these specs will be alright for a new gaming computer?

Firstly, hello and welcome to TechSpot.

Your pretty much spot on with your thoughts regarding gaming computers - Though with the CPUs you need to consider the number of cores (and threads), and the clock speed.

The AMD Phenom 1055T is an outstanding CPU for overclocking, though its unlikely you'll realistically find games able to use all 6 cores - That said, more is better as far as I am concerned.

That said, I don't like the hard disk. For a gaming computer you need to be having a 7,200RPM speed hard disk, or a SSD. You could also probably get a better GPU for the same money as well.

Your best bet to be honest, is to let us know where your from, and your total budget, along with what you need (e.g. do you need a display, keyboard and mouse as well?) and we can then "build" you something thats perfect as a gaming computer.

Hello everyone I am graduating with my B S this Friday and my parents asked me what I wanted for a graduation present and jokingly I said a new computer and they went for it So now I m in a pickle of sorts cause I do want one The one I am using now is about years old it is running ok but obviously is becoming quite inferior This computer was custom built with my friend s help so was pretty good at the time it was made Now I am about to engage heavily into computer gaming with SW The Old Republic coming out and will probably also play Diablo when that is released so I am hoping to get a computer which can handle these games on the highest settings That being said however my dad is pretty firm about getting a computer from Best Buy or some type of retail seller IIRC this is frowned upon by most computer experts or at least for those who build their own Can I get your advice as to good models for the kind of gaming I will be doing Or at least the minimum specs I should be looking at or things brands to avoid when picking one out I was really hoping Specs retail computer? gaming for good a to get something relatively top-of-the-line but I don t think the budget could exceed K nbsp

A:Specs for a good gaming retail computer?

Best Buy do sell computer components so you're not limited to buying a prebuilt (ugh).

No Best Buy in my country, but a quick look at the site shows you can build a pretty good system for that budget. Bear in mind you could save around $500-600 by going with a more basic setup:
Intel 2500K CPU+ Gigabyte Z68 motherboard + 8GB RAM $649
Power supply: Corsair TX650M $100
Windows 7 x64 Home Premium (OEM) $110
Chassis : Corsair Carbide 500R $122. You can save ~$40-60 by going with a more basic case.
Hard drive: WD Cav Black 1TB $150 (Prices are obscenely high at the moment)
HP DVD rewriter $30
Basic component cost (so far) : $1141
Now...
Graphics card. If you aren't planning on upgrading again in the short/medium term, then I'd suggest spending enough to see you through the current and upcoming game releases.
XFX HD 6950 1GB $243.

Monitor...Your choices are a cheaper TN+film panel, or a more expensive IPS panel which offers better color range (gamut) but may have higher latency (detectable ghosting with fast motion).
HP's 2511x (25", 1980x1080) is a very nice TN based LED panel ($230) or
HP's ZR24W (24", 1980x1200) is a very nice IPS based panel ($405)

Total: $1634 or $1809

Peripherals, if you don't already have them:
Mouse : Razer DeathAdder 3500 ($60) -Highly recommended. I use one myself- very nice ergonomics and fully featured.
Keyboard: Razer Arctosa ($50)
Mouse pad : Razer gaming pad ($15)
CPU cooler...
If you are planning on NOT overclocking then the boxed Intel heatsink will work fine...However, if you are planning an overclocking adventure (the 2500K is usually good for 4.7+ GHz in daily operation) then I'd suggest an aftermarket cooler:
A mild or medium overclock - mid-priced air cooler such as the Corsair A70 ($38), a medium-high (say 4-4.3GHz) oc needs a good air cooler such as the CoolerMaster V6GT ($51), while a 4.6 or more I'd recommend either a very good air cooler (none on the Best Buy site that I could find), or the Corsair H100 all-in-one water cooler ($110).

You'll need to make some compromises along the way- especially if you are paying for someone (Geek Squad) to put the system together - wasted money IMO. There's enough online help and guides to allow you to put the system together easily- although your father might have other ideas on the subject. Decide what you need, and what you don't, and whether you would be happy with a gaming orientated TN monitor, or would prefer the better colour reproduction that the IPS provides. Your best bet here would be to see both types in the flesh- so a reconaissance to your local computer shop could well be in order.
Juggling the options around should keep you within budget. If you need/want a speaker sytem, gaming headset, webcam etc. you will need to make further compromises...or add some funds towards your folks nice offer.

Good luck.

I'm swapping my xbox for gaming PC and was wondering if these specs where decent enough to run games like arma 3 and battlefield or like dayz ?

And if it's worth swapping xbox one for it
 

A:Are these pc specs good enough for a starter pc and to swap an xbox one for this gaming pc

No, it is an LGA775 platform. It is old and outdated. For Intel look for a LGA1155 platform or better yet the latest LGA1150 platform. I wouldn't even look at LGA1156, which is the platform between LGA775 and LGA1155. Save yourself a headache and only look at the last two CPU socket platforms.

If you already have the platform, there is still life in it. However I wouldn't advise buying into the platform at any price, especially for a gaming rig.

For photoshop and basic everyday things like e-mail,spreadsheets,surfing the web,etc. it is more than enough. For gaming 3D, you are better off with a dual core with a dedicated graphics card. AMD Turion 64X2 or Intel C2D with ATI or Nvidia dedicated GPU and possibly a 7200rpm hard drive. Asus laptops are geared more toward gamers as are the Acer Ferrari series laptops. Alienware would be the best but are very expensive. Serious gaming is best done on quad core desktops since gaming laptop produce so much heat. I'm also not familiar with gaming on Linux. Gaming is best done on Windows XP.

A:I want to buy a Laptop, Need Specs

we need to know you max budget and country you are in
a lot of machines come with webcam and mic integrated - so that would solve the skype issue
a lot of the small light machines do NOT have a DVD included - so that means taken more equipment around - there a couple of exceptions, I looked at a toshiba and samsung yesterday - 1.92 Kg
I play and make videos, I run lots of software programs simultaneously,Click to expand...

I would suggest you need a good CPU and a machine with 4GBs of memory
now you will pay a lot more for the CPU _ hence the need to know budget

A lot of machines have HDMI output now -even the cheap range - so that should connect to a HD TV - what connections do you have on the TV

I purchased quite a good machine on Wednesday - HP Q62 series - i3 processor, 4gb memory HDMI for less that £400 in UK (on special offer at Staples)

A:HP 6735s laptop specs

Hi Jaffa,

It depends what you want to upgrade.

Is this your lappy?
HP Compaq 6735s Notebook PC specifications - HP Small & Medium Business products

Realistically the only upgrades worth considering would be a bigger HD and some more RAM. Going to 2GB at least would make it feel a bit more snappier.

As for the 3200, it depends what you want to do with it. If it's for games, then unfortunately no, it's not much chop in that department.

As my post says I need the specs of both drives, paticularly the type of termination (active, etc). (I am definately NOT a SCSI savvy person)

Heres my problem I have a proprietary graphics computer that uses standard SCSI hard drives up to about 340mb for saving images. It is compatible with most Quantum LPS/Prodrive and Conner drives, especially the 120mb and 270mb versions.
Anyway I got a large number of IBM WDS3160's due to the lack of the latter and they do not work properly.

With the ibm drives I have problems with line noise and detection.

What is the difference (electronically) between an IBM WDS-3160 and a Conner 30100 drive? Is there any way I can get the IBM drive to function similarly to a Conner 30100?

Please note that I am only using one drive in the system.

Thanx for any help
 

A:Need IBM WDS-3160 specs and Conner cp30100 specs major trouble

I believe I've found a difference between the two drives, it seems that the conner unit automatically enables SCSI parity and the ibm drive makes no mention of it.
Do any of you think this could be the issue? If so how would I enable parity on the ibm drive?

Thanx

When you purchased the laptop, did you erase all the bloatware that usually comes along with it? You can look into optimizing the laptop by getting rid of services and processes you don't need and you can think about purchasing a SSD for a real speed increase in read/write.

First, what 'types' of hard drives are there? Yes, I really don't know what I'm asking, but every time I read a laptop review, there's either a Serial ATA, HDD, or just normal ATA. What's the difference between them? I've noticed that most laptops have SATA; is it the norm for laptops?

Second, what Intel processors can be used in laptops? I know that the Core family is obviously used, but what about the Celeron? I've never seen any Celeron processors in laptops. Would Celerons be better performance and efficiency-wise?

Third, if a laptop has a NVIDIA graphics card, is that good? I read somewhere that if a NVIDIA graphics card is in a laptop, that's good enough for a frequent gamer even if it's the worst NVIDIA card. A side-question: what's the least best ATI card needed for a frequent gamer?
 

A:Quick questions on laptop specs

SATA is the standard used in both desktops and laptops nowadays. Faster than ATA. HDD just stands for Hard Disk Drive.

Intel Core 2s are pretty much the best laptop CPUs. Celerons are old and quite crappy.

Hmm. Depends on the games you're going to play. The crappiest NVIDIAs and Atis are both enough for very light gaming, but you'd need to look for Nvidia 8xxx series or GT1xx series and Radeon 3xxx, preferably better for something you could actually call 3D gaming enjoyably.

A:Laptop built - plz comment on specs

"Building" one is not an option, in the context of buiding a desktop.

All laptop parts are usually proprietary to the maker, there is no such thing as a "generic" laptop motherboard, case etc.

Hence buying a branded one, but perhaps exercising what customisable options within any model is about as far as you can go.

My advice is, find the lightest you can get with acceptable speed. After lugging it around all day, you will soon see what I mean.

The laptop you suggest seems a bit heavy for me, but the price goes up as the weight goes down .... The weight suggests its more of a "desktop replacement" than a very portable laptop. I would be aiming for something under 5 lbs, but perhaps I am a wimp...

I had a free old Dell Inspiron 1100 fall into my lap today. It needs a screen and I'm also thinking of upgrading the processor.

Can someone tell me how I can find out what socket type the processor is and what the fastest Pentium 4 processor is that it will take?

I have seen Pentium 4 processors before that were the same speed and because of some other detail about the processor, one would work in a certain system and the other would not. So, are there details about the processor selection I should know?
 

A:Solved: Need help with specs on thios laptop.

Sorry to have bothered. It's a socket-478 and 2.4 GHz is a fast as this board will handle. Fortunately, I had a 2.2-GHz in a drawaer in the shop. I replaced the 2.2-GHz Celeron with the 2.2-GHz Pentium 4 and the performance jumped considerably.

Celerons are definitely better . . . than nothing.

Mr Steve2007

A:Trouble finding HP specs. for my laptop

No need to put back the same hard drive but if you want to do that you can just pull the old one and look at it. HP used a variety of different brands of hard drives then and still does. You can replace it with any 2.5 inch wide and 9.5 or 7mm thick SATA laptop hard drive of which there are infinite options. Your model is past ordinary support. HP has pulled all the Manuals and spec pages.  From what I can find, it was a 100gb 5400 rpm drive which is too small really in today's computing world. I suggest a 250 or 320 gig drive and in the US you are looking at around $40 for it on amazon.com or similar.

A:Need help please in comparing laptop specs, which is the better option??

While the bus on Intel and AMD processors is different, the AMD may have the 1600Mhz HyperTransport bus while the Intel one uses a 667Mhz Front Side Bus, and the clock speeds are slightly lower on the Intel but the overall performance should be quite similar. The design of the Core 2 Duo's is very efficient and well suited to laptop designs.

The integrated video on the Intel one might actually be better, synthetic benchmark numbers (like 3DMARK06) on the Intel GMA X3100 are actually quite good for an integrated graphics chip, better then on the Geforce 6150. Neither is a gaming solution but for average use and the Vista Aero interface they are more then adequate.

Which Intel P4 Processor and what storage options to use?

Hello everyone. I need to spec out a new testing PC for work, so I'm asking for some opinions. The role this thing will play is a VMware test machine. I will be creating VMware images to run application tests, break/fix, troubleshooting, etc. The operating systems on the images will likely be Server 2003 and XP. So I was thinking of 2 gigs memory, but that may be too conservative. The help I really need is with the CPU and storage. I obviously want a multi core/hyperthreaded CPU, but which one? Hot swapapble RAID would be nice, but what level, and do I need a stand-alone RAID controller or can I use the mobo's?

Thanks all, in advance.
 

A:Specs I need, give me specs. Opinion Sollicitation for work PC...

The Xeon Line of CPU's usally do very well in a server like setup. Alot of the time you can get the dual CPU motherboards. If you perfer though maybe one of the new Intel Dual Cores will run well, although im not sure, most servers I know of run dual Xeon's.

As for storage, if you have the money, get SCSI contolers and RAID SCSI drives. They are alot quicker.

And 2GB of RAM seems fine.

My friend asked me to fix his laptop since all he knows how to do is go online. I took it home with me and took a look and the thing has so much spyware and adware in it that it takes nearly 5 min just to start up. So when i finally got to windows I looked around and he doesn't really have any programs or files that I can't replace or re-install. So what I want to do is restore the laptop back to how it was out of the box. Only problem is he has no recovery disk. It is an Averatec laptop, an older one, and wanted to know if there was a way to do this without the recovery disk? I called averatec and they wanted $20 for the disk and it will take 7-10 days to get it. I was kinda hoping to do this this weekend. Thanks in advance.

hi all
Having decided to keep my CSc camera and editing raw files, I have exposed the speed / capabilities of my currrent laptop (dell xps i7 (2nd generation) with 8gb ram). Last year I installed an ssd which made a colossal difference but think the processor (i7 2670QM 2.2ghz up to 3.1ghz) is now limiting (possibly the ram too 1333MHz DDR3).
i have a budget of around £1200 max and don't have space for a desktop. I borderline hate dell as I have had two of their laptops, and work laptops, which have all had issues. So would rather not stay with dell.
Any recommendations for that price? I have seen hp 360 and Lenovo yoga as good alternatives with great reviews.
Is an i7 a must or an i5 good enough too? Is 16gb ram key or 8gb enough with later expansion if needed?
thanks

Laptops are quite cheap these days - to get a machine with 1GB of memory is quite common - staples in UK had a deal just before xmas for a machine for £399

I use photoshop on 512M of memory editing 27MB files OK
my laptop is a HP dv5094ea
1GB of memory
seperate 128M graphics card - few have seperate cards - most are intergrated
AMD Turion64 and it works great with PS

however, I do prefer a big monitor when doing detailed work - so you may find this the limitation

I replaced the Hard drive with the one from the Toshiba, but now the CPU thinks it's still a Toshiba! It's trying to look for drives that don't exist, the Bit rate is mixed up, and i can't do certain things because of it! The OS was from the Toshiba, and i'm not sure which specs are contained in the Hard drive. Please help!

A:Toshiba Hard drive specs on HP Laptop

Hello there, It's apparent that you are trying to run the HP machine by replacing its HDD with a third part HDD (Toshiba in this case).However, the computer works best (with all its features and modules) only with the platform that it built on (which includes the operating system as well).Please try to replace it with its geneic HDD and the OS it came with, and check if it works fine.I'm sure there would be no problem after that.  Cheers!

Ignore the language, I just want to show you the specs (scroll down a little bit to find it).

FYI I upgraded this laptop's RAM to 3 GB.

I use Driver Genius regularly to keep the drivers updated. And of course Ccleaner to keep the system clean.

I'm pretty sure this OS is free of virus/malware.

Not sure if you know DotA (defense of the ancient), but this laptop can barely play DotA. I use 1024x768 screen resolution. When the battle starts, it lags. Thanks to the lag, I often lose the battles. -.-

And no, I am not interested to play other games. Just DotA on this laptop.

Kindly give me suggestions to improve the performance? Maybe downgrade to XP?

A:This laptop specs aren't good enough for Windows 7 Ultimate?

If you upgraded RAM to 3GB I'm not sure downgrading to XP would give you much more than let's say 5-10% speed up, if that much, probably not. The problem is with laptop you can't upgrade much beyond memory and you already did that. I'm not familiar with the game, but is it graphic intensive, CPU intensive or both? Lower resolution to 640x400, see if it helps any, check system resources during game, does it run out of RAM and trashing the hard drive, is CPU pegged at 100% and can't do no more, is the graphics too intensive and need to lower the settings? At the end there is not much you can do. You could try to see if overclocking is possible for CPU and GPU, could probably get 5-10% if it's doable, maybe upgrade CPU all together (I think they go up to 2.4GHz). At the end new faster laptop may be less expensive in the long run.

The laptop just runs very slow. I need the laptop to run faster. No games are played on it. Maybe some overclocking or just some basic cleaning info or value changes. Thank you

$220 for what? 1GHZ and 4.4"?

I made a previous post about a computer I was planning to buy and whether Fallout 3 can run on those specs. But there's been a change of plans. The computer is sold out and outta stock so this is my second choice to buy Costco.

Would this computer with these specs run Fallout 3 at least above medium settings?

I just bought a new laptop, it's Toshiba L300. I loved it so much, but then I tried to run Sims 2 in it and it's so slow even though I already lowered all the settings, it's still slow. Now my questions is: Can I increase the specs of my laptop so I can play games in it especially Sims 2 and 4?

A:Is it possible to make my laptop a gaming laptop?

Laptops are very difficult to upgrade. If money was no object, you might be able to do something, but practically speaking you are stuck with what you have.

There are "gaming" laptops, but they are quite expensive compared to a desktop. And they are prone to high temperatures and expensive to repair.

A:looking to buy a gaming laptop

I got my gaming laptop a few years ago and haven't had any problems running Saints Row 4 on max..
I like my Asus ROG (Republic Of Games) G73JW. http://www.asus.com/ROG_ROG/G73Jw
It's pretty big and heavy to haul around though. They have several configurations of the new model. http://www.asus.com/ROG_ROG/Notebooks_Products/
You might be able to find an older model like mine on Amazon a little cheaper than a current ones.

You concerned about battery life, size, or weight?
Fair warning, most "gaming" laptops have very poor battery life and are often heavier than regular laptops.

Just pick a few and read reviews of them. Amazon, Newegg, places like that. see if the positive comments overwhelmingly beat the negative. Even then, remember some new items can be bad or the person just didn't know how to setup or use it right. Read both, positive and negative on the ones your considering, then just go for it.

AMD Athlon 64 3400+ mobile
Radeon 9600 mobility
512mb of ram.

Anyone know if this will keep me going for the next few years playing most of the newer games? I can easily upgrade the ram, because I know 512 is sub standard these days.

Thanks. Kainy.

I am getting a laptop for college and was wondering what is the best I can get for the price range of $900-$1300. I've been looking, but am having a hard time determining what will run the games I want since they are compared based on desktop configurations. I really want to be able to play the games Elder Scrolls: Oblivian, F.E.A.R., WoW, and Half-Life 2.

Thx for any help
 

A:Gaming Laptop Help

unfortunately Laptops designed with gaming in mind are very expensive. Alienware makes some and so does ABS. But they charge an arm and a leg for them. What you have to look at is what the system requirements are for the games and then look for a laptop that meets or exceeds those requirements. A budget of $1300 is not a lot I am afraid.

Please Help.

Tell us the laptop brand and model, or the configuration. The problem is usuall that Warcraft 3 won't work on many laptops... due to memory, audio capabilities, of video graphics hardware or drivers.

Similar performance. Just a matter of chipset preference. Intel/nVidia or AMD/ATI

Although the intel build has a better audio chipset.

Warranty should be the same for both, so it boils down to brand preference and/or price.
