If you want maximum performance,go with i7 950/2 GTX 485Ms/6GB RAM(HDD capacity depends on yourself) ziyuanqu February 4, 2011 7:19:45 PM thank you maziar. well i think SLI GTX 485M would way above my budget.

This got me pretty confused; can you tell me the pros and cons of Radeon against Geforce. Thank you Maziar a c 236 D Laptop a b 4 Gaming February 6, 2011 3:48:24 PM 6970M is faster than GTX 470M but 2x6970Ms are sometimes slower than 2 470Ms due to drivers. ziyuanqu February 6, 2011 4:09:36 PM ok. One last question. what about the heat produced, which one is hotter when gaming? Maziar a c 236 D Laptop a b 4 Gaming February 7, 2011 5:32:06 AM 6970M has slightly more power consumption http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-6970m-mob... ziyuanqu February 7, 2011 1:19:50 PM Thank you very much Maziar a c 236 D Laptop a b 4 Gaming February 8, 2011 8:37:33 AM No prob,post some benchies if you bought it ziyuanqu February 8, 2011 11:52:33 AM sure will... what software is there to benchmark? i already know CPU-Z, Core temp, Prime95, PCmark 05, Itunes, Cod 6&7 and Crysis. Maziar a c 236 D Laptop a b 4 Gaming February 9, 2011 4:58:09 AM Any games that you have are great.(Including COD6,7 and Crysis).Metro 2033/Stalker are also great for benchmarking.
