Solved Gaming - Which Laptop to buy? Tags: Laptops Gaming Last response: October 12, 2010 8:46 PM in Laptop Tech Support Share Diode0 October 12, 2010 8:39:40 AM Hey, I was just wondering which laptop would be better for gaming. I am buying one of the two so please say which is better instead of giving me a different recommendation, cheers. Laptop 1: Intel i5 450M 2.4 GHz Dual Core (2.66 Turbo Boost)/ 4G RAM / 500G / 15.6" / GT310M 1G / BT / CAM / Win 7 Pro Laptop 2: AMD Phenom P920 1.6 GHz Quad Core / 4G RAM / 500G / 15.6" / 1G 5470M / Blu-ray / Windows 7 Pro Video card wise im sure the 5470m is better than the GT310 but I'm completely unsure about processors, help would be great.

Anyway,5470M is a faster choice. m 0 l Diode0 October 12, 2010 11:25:59 AM I only want to really play steam games on high resolution with all settings low and get over 50 frames, I guessed the 5470 would of been faster but with the processors and all included which laptop is actually better? m 0 l Related resources which gaming laptop to buy for wow ? - Forum which gaming laptop should i buy?! - Forum Buy a expensive brand gaming laptop or Clone gaming laptop which one is better for online game? - Forum Which gaming laptop to buy. - Forum Which laptop should I buy out of this selection for gaming? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

The particular laptops he chose aren't really designed for games, but that is not true for the entire industry. Diode: The 5470 is the better of the two, but I have no idea how that Phenom will hold up. The mobile Phenoms seemed pretty weak at best. m 0 l Best solution Maziar a c 244 D Laptop a b 4 Gaming October 12, 2010 5:20:11 PM Well since most games are GPU limited,then although the second one has a slower CPU,go for it because almost all steam games are GPU limited.
