I would be mostly gaming (Farcry 2, Metro, Crysis, MW2, etc.) What would be the best bang for buck? Thanks!

If your games have quad core support you can also get the 955. m 0 l RiJ September 13, 2010 9:38:57 PM So does the 740 out beat the 720 in performance? Haven't seen much for benches or anything like that for the 740. m 0 l Related resources GT 720m vs 8570m vs GT 740m - Forum i3-400m with GT 740m or i5-4200 with GT 720m - Forum Choosing laptop to game i7-3537U + gt720m OR i5-4200U + gt740m - Forum Wounded 955 or new 740 BE? - Forum NVIDIA GT 720M or NVIDIA GT 740M and why? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Chances are that you can unlock a X3 to a quad but not guaranteed. m 0 l RiJ September 14, 2010 12:21:05 AM Best answer selected by RiJ. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
