  1. why dont u just build a desktop if you going to connect it to a monitor anyway?
  2. Hello vishalaestro;

    What graphics setting do you want to BF3 to run on? Low? Medium? High? Ultra?
  3. medium atleast for all games highest for counterstrike source
  4. The older games won't be a problem of course.
  5. will an alienware m14x will be good http://www.dell.com/us/p/alienware-m14x-r2/fs
    i have chosen the second one
  6. @ $1400? Going a bit over budget there.

    It's probably going to be good. Exactly how good we're not sure.
    Can you check back in a few days, maybe a week? Should know by then.
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M
  7. ok i will but what's ur suggestion
  8. Are you only limited to newegg as the only retailer you will buy from?
  9. yes
  10. What's your budget range?

    Here are a couple of laptops I would recommend:

    1) MSI GT780/783DXR : http://www.msi.com/product/nb/GT780DX-GT780DXR-.html (or just go with the 680, which is cheaper.. and since you are going to connect an external monitor anyway..

    2) ASUS G74SX : http://www.asus.com/Notebooks/Gaming_Powerhouse/G74SX/

    You can also look at Alienware laptops but they are generally not recommended if you are looking for something close to portable and... I really don't like the aesthetics of Alienware :/

    If you can hold off for another month or two, Ivy Bridge laptops are going to be released with Kepler GPUs from NVIDIA and the HD7000M series from AMD. Both GPUs are in the 28nm technology.. so lesser power consumption and lighter weights...

    If you are a resident of the US, you may also want to look at Clevo/Sager laptops.. They are usually cheaper than their counterparts. I'm not really familiar with these laptops though...
  11. go to sager.com and check out those laptops these are true gaming laptops and made only for gaming. Since your only using newegg iam assuming that your using paypal to pay for it. You can use paypal to pay for sager laptops but only if you purchase it through xoctic pc website which usually they give you a better deal for the sager than actual sager website

    :) To each his own, I guess... I personally don't like Alienware. It is very bulky and close to impossible when it comes to portability(not a desktop replacement at all). The 12 year old in me surely has a liking towards its design but now I've grown out of it :)
  15. exactly why i like sager so much richwork it can easily pass as a work computer that looks like it cant game. Though a sager can destroy in mobile gaming market.

    so just tell me a good gaming laptop from 800-1000$ providing a better battery backup because i will also use it for powerpoint presentation
  17. sager NP6165 has 15.6 inch screen not 17inch screen i did that because its a bit cheaper and seems that it would make it easier for you to use this as a laptop for presentations this 17 inch laptops are big.
