I'm considering purchasing a new custom-specified laptop for gaming purposes (and some miscellaneous software testing every now and then) and before I submit my order I'd like to know what components I should choose from which provider in order to get the best available.
DDR3 RAM: Kingston, OCZ, Crucial, Corsair or another provider.
Same for the audio/graphics cards: Creative, ASUS, TerraTec/Radeon, GeForce, etc...
Also, I might have misunderstood a bit when you asked about size.
I usually use the standard resolution of 1024x768 when I play in order to optimize the fps (on heavy/fullscreen games), but on web-based flash-games, I use the resolution that fits the screen the best without having it look weird/stretched more in one way than the other (vertical/horizontal).
I hope this will help you a bit more than my initial info.
PS: Toshiba. Not HP.
Alternatively, a site where I can find info from all providers regarding all types of cards would also be useful in the future, for comparison purposes.
(Google has never failed me before, but today it did. )
