What gaming laptop should i get? Tags: Prebuilt Laptops Gaming Internet Explorer Systems Last response: December 25, 2011 10:49 PM in Systems Share adamandkate December 22, 2011 8:22:20 PM Im looking at a new gaming laptop. Im looking for something that will be suitable for 2/3 years (ie a laptop that in 3 years time will still run most new releases even if its minimum graphics etc). My budget is about £1000 and i dont need an OS. Im thinking about this one (but im open to other ideas) http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/vortexII-17/ with the ram increased to 16gb 1333 or 8gb 1600 (which is best) my concern is that its a 2.2ghz laptop... arent there games already that reccomend higher? eg crysis 2 wants 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo. Would it be worth increasing to the i7 quad core 2.2ghz. Im totally out of the hardware loop. I used to understand it when you needed a 486 or a 233mhz. but theres so many variables now! thanks for the advice.

You shouldn't need more than 8 GB of RAM, unless you do heavy video editing/rendering. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
