    Im not into gaming as much as i was before for my own good so i can focus on my education but i will still game. So instead of blowing cash on a desktop im gonna buy a new lappy. This should be pretty much max everygame..?

    I5 2450m, 8GB DDR3, 750GB HDD, and a 2GB GT640M. Sounds decent?..

    That should be more than enough, as far as maxing every game, it matters what you considering maxing. That might do it, but I'd bet on a lot of titles having frap drops, the Min framerate is always the most important, not the max.

    youll get like 30fps average on low with that GT640.

    I would get this if you want to do any sort of gaming on a laptop

    MSI G Series GT700NC-008US Notebook Intel Core i7 ...

    Do you happen to have a link to specific model or are those rough specs that you are looking for? It looks like it could certainly handle BF3 on low based on its benchmarks but you would have to take the resolution into account as well. I'm assuming you are going to be playing some BF3 since you are posting it in the clubhouse after all :laugh:

    It looks like his average FPS would be significant better than 30 at least from the benchmarks available on notebookcheck it appears on low he would be in the 47 fps range on average.

    Also that MSI is beautiful if you can afford to spend that much but im guessing the price of it would be a far cry from the specs he is looking at and while this Asus is probably significantly more expensive as well I think it is more of a middle ground between the two.

    Yeah itll play it at low at 30fps average, but then the minimum is going to be quite a bit below that.

    EDIT: Show me where you are setting that he would get 47fps. I could be wrong but i think the GT640 is just a rebranded 540m.

    NVM, checked and the 640 as 384 cuda cores and the 540m only has 96.

    Its a 15.6 lappy so 1366x768. I was thinking that i could of atleast got 50-60fps on low.
    Specs of the card

    NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M Kepler 384 625 625 900 128 11

    Heres a link. http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-640M.71579.0.html
    Seems it should be able to play all games nicely at med/high or even max. I honestly dont use AA so so i think it should be fine.

    Im on my phone atm so i cant do much. And today i leave hawaii back to good ol sydney :(

    Yeah , but expect Ultra setting to be playable.
    Maybe medium, which looks really good too.

    No I meant "Don't expect":laugh: I just looked that up. It will struggle even at Medium I'd think with Multiplayer and the larger maps.
    The GT650 with DDR5 is the route to go if you want to play BF3 MP at anything higher then low, like McPhenom said.

    had some good games with Dave and Mailman tonight! I love driving the M1 Abram so much fun, I can snipe anything out of the air with them with the main gun. And the guided missiles are awesome too! Any helicopter goes down right away when you hit one haha.

    Yeah playing with you guys was fun despite my .50 KDR at the end. I just had bad luck most of the round. A Kill Assist 96 from a grenade on a guy who then RPG'd me to death right before getting killed himself is a prime example.
