Sony vaio - gaming usage??

Iv customised up a sony vaio for 740 with the following spec - do you think it will run BF3!?

Intel® CoreTM i7-3612QM,2.1GHz
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
500 GB Serial ATA (5400 rpm)
8 GB 1333 MHz DDR3-SDRAM
AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7650M 2GB

couldnt get an ssd on it or performance Ram - my concern was the Graphics!!

  1. Hello dunn2k;

    It will run BF3.
    You'll probably need to run on Low graphics settings to get a smooth, fluid gaming experience.
  2. What kind of budget are you working with?

    For just under $1000 you can get a HP Pavilion dv6t-7000 Quad Edition 15.6" 3rd Gen Ivy Bridge Core i7 Laptop
    Includes Core i7-3610QM 2.3GHz, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD & 32GB SSD cache, 15.6" 1920x1080 anti-glare LCD w/ Geforce GT 650M.
    With Blu-Ray, Bluetooth and backlit keyboard.

  3. im in the UK and my budget is £800 very max.....but i dont want a really chuncky one lol.... i cant seem to find that hp in the uk mate - checked on hp website :/
  4. The new Ivy Bridge models have only been out a short while.
    But I suspect when they do arrive the IVB/GT 650M combo will be over budget for you.

    Size wise & weight wise the 15.5 Sony and 15.6" HP dv6 are nearly identical.

    Got a link to your Sony model?
  5. basically i just configured the E serioes on their website- ill link it anyway :) https://shop.sony.co.uk/shop/b2c/cto/navigate/(xcm=PCM_b2ccrmstandard&layout=27_184_176_151&uiarea=1)/.do?from=Accessories&to=looks

    i guess in essence a gaming laptop is out of my budget - this is as gd a spec as iv found for the price and i know the build quality is good too
  6. i priced up a cyberpower system but customising takes the price up a bit much

  7. my desktop is currently running a MSI 6850 1Gb GPU - how does that compare with the 2Gb 7650M in the laptop??
  8. HD 7650M will perform a bit less than a desktop HD 5570
