The i5 may be dual-core, but a GT 630 will not be enough for higher-end gaming. What games do you plan on playing? | Report abuse fastreaction Graphics card Expert August 24, 2012 9:06:35 PM For gaming? A desktop . Cheaper and better, take my advise and you won't regret having a strong desktop . - Fastreaction | Report abuse jasperg97 August 24, 2012 9:13:25 PM Thanks for the answers guys, im not wanting a desktop as i also want the laptop for school work, general use and having a portable computer that i could take to my friends house and stuff. I was sort of steering towards the i5 as the gt 650m is supposed to be so much more powerful than the gt 630m. As for games, anything and everything from COD to GTA V when it comes out. I heard GTA was quite CPU intensive though and was just wanting an experts opinion if an i5 would run it lag free | Report abuse gamerkila57 Graphics card Authority August 24, 2012 9:18:54 PM go for a laptop with amd APU as the graphics will be 10x better and it will cost less http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... | Report abuse fastreaction Graphics card Expert August 24, 2012 9:21:18 PM It will depend on the resolution. That GPU (GT 650M) is absolutely not an high end gpu card. If you want to play on high/ultra on 1920x1080 you would need a GTX 680M. Expensive and that's why I suggest buying a desktop. - Fastreaction | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>GT 650m i5 vs GT 630m i7 for gaming> Related ressources: ForumGt 630m or gt 640m ForumI3 3110M with GT 650M 2GB notebook ForumIs NVIDIA GT 630M 1 GB not enough for gaming ?
