    dual core with HT, and the video card can play starcraft II quite well on medium - remember its only a 1360x768 screen.

    my 40" HDTV has the same res, so its going to make an interesting backup gaming system for the GF, cloning the image over HDMI and using a cordless mouse + KB

    i really am just curious as to what people think of the laptop, so please keep the opinions coming.

    I would still go with an AMD APU over it. The GT520 is quite weak in comparison to the APU+dedicated graphics available in the HP DV6 series and Asus K53TA/A53TA/K43TA. They also utilize a more powerful quad core CPU, which are oddly enough known for overclocking pretty well (2.4-2.8ghz stable)

    9.3 for that monster laptop of yours.

    It lacks a more powerful video card and an SSD for 10.

    scout: 6.5/10 for the desktop, its showing its age and i know from experience P35 + low multi 45nm is a bitch to OC.


    would like the system i built for my missus rated:

    corsair TX750 v1
    gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H
    4GB DDR2 1066 patriot ram
    500GB samsung
    8600GT 512MB
    athlon II x3 435
    some coolermaster mATX case (forgot model, sorry)
    15" LCD XD


    plan is to upgrade CPU, GPU and monitor later on in the year. its her first desktop, so its already godly compared to what she's used to.

    I would say 7.0/10. Once you beef up the CPU/GPU/Monitor depending on what you get could be anywhere from a 8.0 to a 9.0 more or less.

    I disagree, c2d's are showing their age.

    6/10, nothing special, I'd at least start her out with ddr3, it's not like the mobos are heaps expensive.
