How much difference in fps does .26 ghz really make?

Hey! i'm looking to buy a laptop for gaming. i would appreciate any help deciding on a processor because i don't know it impacts gaming.

right now all I play is WoW so that's what is important (but the most demanding game i might ever play is Age of Conan)

So my question is, how much of a difference in fps would there be between the P8600 (2.4 GHz) or T9550 (2.66 GHz) and which should I go with?

Thanks for your input!

  1. You probably won't notice a difference between the 2, maybe a few fps in some games but your fps is going to be most dependant on your video card. I hope your not looking at something with integrated graphics, it'll never play anything like Age of Conan.

    Nah, the HD 4650 :) I am hoping that could play Age of Conan with low to medium settings if I ever do
  3. you shouldn't really notice that much of a difference between them, but i'm curious do you have access to what the Multiplier and BCLCK is set too on it, like he stated above graphics card is going to ahve the most affect on your gaming experience

    the higher the BCLCK is the harder everything on your ocmputer will work.Multiplier only effects the processor BCLCK, everything
  4. Maybe less than 1 percent? The difference is so little you'd have to run benchmarks to notice.
  5. Know your bottlenecks first, is your GPU limiting performance, or the CPU?
  6. maybe i should give you a level 80 character free save you on time lol
  7. Depends. (How's that for a concrete answer?) If it's the difference between 2.0 and 2.26 GHz., quite a bit. If it's the difference between 3.0 and 3.26 GHz., probably not much.
