Hey all! In the process of getting an Alianware Area 51 M15x and would like to know how good of a gaming rig it is. I know its old and a laptop so its going to be less than a desktop but most of my knowlage is in Desktop rigs and not lappys. I have a desktop with basically the same specs and it plays all the games listed on maxx with a Dell 22in 1680x1050. (yeah its a low res but Im not a rich man. (I know the lappy will not be as good as the destop cause its well, a laptop...)
Would like to play MW3 2 and 1 (would love to be on high...)
Dirt 2 and 3
FSX and Wings of Prey
SO here are the specs,
AREA-51 M15X 15" WUXGA W/CAM SIL-RIP-PNT R1
CPEN,INTEL T9300 CPU,2500/800,6M,FCPGA6 SCREENED
ELPIDA 4GB DDR2 PC2-5300 SO-DIMM 667MHZ Y9535
M15X PRIMARY 120WATT AC ADAPTER-ACCESS
M15X ODD SMARTBAY KIT-SILVER-PNT
M17X / M15X NVIDIA 9800M-GT2 512MB
SILVER BRACKET FOR MD2GTX, MD2GT2
SEAGATE 160GB 7200RPM FFS HDD REV3
8X DVD+/-RW NEC AD-7590A
INTEL PRO WIRELESS 4965 A/B/G DRAFT-N MINI-CARD
INTEL MOBILE INTEGRATED HIGH-DEFINITION AUDIO
Just hoping I could get lots of ppls ideas please. Thank you all in advance!
Like I said I know its not the laitest and greatest, but for $405 I dont think its to bad! Or is it??
Ahh I see.
The "GT2" is that the same as the "GT"?
You say "old" like its not that great in reality? I mean I know it came out it 08 (long time ago in g-card world) But is it decent?
Also "that level of performance" do you mean (compared to todays standards) low level- mid? I know from the link you posted prostreet, MW1 (and perhaps 2) will play on high to max settings but Idk about the others... Your expert advice/thoughts? Thanks for your time!
Ok well seller "said" he never gamed that much. But I really have no idea how much... I only game a few hrs on the weekend anyways...
Well I have looked all over Nvidia, wiki and other places but have never seen a GT2, only the GS, GT, GTS, GTX. (for the notebook line) all the 9800ms have 51.2GBS. Just different clocks ect... A little less than the desktop line... but its in a notebook...
I dont think the GPU will be limited by the CPU (above) will it? Or would I need to upgrade that?
Also, what is the max ammout of RAM could I put in it? will 800mhz work?
