    Hey everyone, im building a custom laptop online. I would like to know the best processor for crysis without having me to overclock. Im not comfortable with that so please tell me a great processor to run crysis as great of fps as possible. I was looking at quad core 3.0 ghz and core 2 duo 3.0- and above.


    IM NOT OVERCLOCKING so just tell me whats best for crysis and all games too, Thanks

    Wow, a crysis playing laptop. Now that's a challenge...

    IMO a 3.0ghz quad core laptop is overkill, even for a desktop :D; for the best fps possible a duo core of the same speed is fine (if they have such thing).

    What specs do you want to play crysis on this monster laptop; what is the video card on it?

    first overclocking a laptop is a dumb idea. they are meant to run stock. Oc the proc you heat up the rest of the system. laptop oc = failure.

    With that said a P9600, T9800 or a low end quad

    Why do you want to spend so much on a lappy?
    You realise that it will never touch the performance of a desktop, for a lot less money.

    Google


    Moneys no problem, i play torneys for vegas 2 for a living so laptops a must. Also google custom laptops , they can easily get on desktop level in performace. Benchmarks show it, only over clocking is the difference

    Might point was that you couldnt touch a PC for half the money once it has been OC'd, but if you can warrant the expense.

    Where are you getting it from, maybe we could take a look?

    Well based on what Acid888 posted I would get the Q9650.

    And what is the point in how great an iphone is in their marketing campaigns if it cant even do flash?

    What I said doesn't much matter, as I'd much sooner have a desktop for $2000 that can kick this laptop in the balls! :nutkick: :rockout:


    I speced the laptop up to the max price he said, 6K (+$440) and it didn't look so bad.

    That was my point, lol.

    I would rather build myself a matx lan box than a lappy.

    Bang for the buck and performance this might be hard to beat...

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834220503

    Looks like it's not on the egg right now, so might have to do some searching. But I seen another forum where a guy hit 4ghz on the processor and broke a 20k 3d06 score, thats insane for a laptop!

    Even not OC'ing that laptop still comes with a 4870x2 and that proc's good. A quad core with todays games isn't going to get you any farther as most games use only 2 cores. And it's going to be hard to find another laptop with that kind of graphics power.
