Hey guys, looking for a cheap ass laptop that'll run borderlands 2 on mid settings, and things like dota2, leage of legends, and heroes of newerth on high settings. I also would PREFER a 15.6" screen, but if a 17"er just so happens to be on a good deal, then so be it.
These are the 2 best I could find for this price range. (really striving for under 600)
Please tell me which is the better deal. Or if you think there is better bang for the buck out there, link it plz! THANKS
from looking notebookcheck I found the following info
The performance of the 96 shader version should be exactly like the GeForce GT 540M and the 144 shader version like the GeForce GT 555M (see both gaming benchmark pages). Demanding games of 2010 should therefore run fluently in medium to high details. However, certain 2011 games like Anno 2070 or Skyrim may need reduced detail settings for fluent framerates. According to Nvidia, the GF117 version can be clocked up to 800 MHz and should therefore perform similarly to the average GT 555M. However, exact clock rates will differ between laptop models and manufacturers and the performance will likely range somewhere between a GT 540M and GT 555M.
I would look into the video cards specs a little more and see what version of the gt630m you are getting or see if you can overclock the video card to bring it to similar performance level as the gt555m.
