    Would work fine,however what power supply do you have?


    He's fine, that card doesn't take a separate power.

    Quote from 999Catfish

    There is no gaming laptop. Though that laptop could run games at a responsible FPS


    Not true, there are "gaming laptops," but they really are inadequate when compared to desktops. Meaning you can game on them but it won't be the best experience.


    Alienware is not really the best example they are greatly overpriced.

    is this laptop good for gaming? I would use this for literally everything. Please post! www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834214490


    It's pretty good, as always you can always get more from a desktop and building it yourself.

    Recording videos depend on more than a graphic card, it also depends on the CPU, RAM, and Disk Drive.

    The graphic card you have right there is the latest series. I have a 4850 and it records at 60 fps.


    Not really it's almost completely dependent on the graphics card. Any high clock dual-core or almost all quad cores with above 4 GBs of RAM will do.

    You don't want to max out his budget. All he wants to do is play and record minecraft. That card will easily handle it. Op, this may sound stupid, but are you on a laptop? Or is the computer you want to upgrade a desktop?


    You kind of are right.

    Yeah that's fine. Do you have a max budget we can recommend another card that can do a fair bit more if you would like.

    Quote from ClockEFFX

    So Ive pretty much finished my computer, but im upgrading my memory.
    I have 4Gb, should i upgrade to 8, 12 or 16Gb?

    i have a Intel i5-2500K x4 OC'ed CPU,
    GTX 550 Ti,
    And a HX750W PSU.


    8 you won't really use much more than 6 but it's good to have a little extra.

    My poor wording. When I refer to gaming computer, I also intend for that computer to be computationally capable as well, as my uses of my computer have always gone outside of gaming.

    I'll further explain my example. In Starcraft II, when 800 zerglings are running around the map, I still get 60 FPS on High settings, but the input is tremendously delayed. I see everything happen right away but I can't react, and in high APM games like SC2, that's critical to winning. Hope that resolves any of our confusion.


    A lower CAS latency would still help more here.

    Quote from HexellHero

    RAM does not affect the speed at which you can run a game (if you had a 1GHz processor with 12Gb ram it would be slow.)

    OT: seems fine. I can recommend Asus and Toshiba (to some extent) to be good manufacturers of laptops.


    Stop bumping already answered threads.

    RAM isn't used by the GPU, please realize. having more than 512MB of RAM will not affect your framerates, either, because that's not how RAM is used. Get or open up something like Starcraft II, which can have upwards of 800 little things running around each with it's own AI all at the same time and tell me how the game runs on lower clock RAM. RAM is for immediate storage and retrieval, not generating frames.


    It still doesn't really make much a difference, a lower CAS latency would help more than a high frequency.

    Get another harddrive. Its dum to use sata unless your gonna install like a 100 games. Its better to just install a solid state disk harddrive. And belive me when i say you dont need 1tb if your only gonna store essential things. Better to use an external harddrive for storing.
    I for example is only using 77gigabyte and i have already got everything i need installed.



    SATA is a protocol used for almost all current drives, Do you mean a SSD rather than a HDD? As far as having a TB you don't really need it but it gives you plenty of room to expand, I wouldn't suggest buying now though.

    Quote from Rumudiez

    fine suggestions for an i5 and cheaper motherboard, but that RAM might be a little too low. 1333MHz is okay, but for a gaming desktop it would be more relevant to use 1600MHz or 1800MHz. Higher than that and you just find cooling issues...


    The frequency doesn't really make that much of a difference.

    Yes, as I said I've already run Memtest86 for 11 and a half hours with no errors, and Windows Memory Diagnostic.

    AMD graphics are actually on the same die. Intel graphics are on a separate die from the cpu but are on the same chip.


    Thanks.

    Hmm after I updated and reinstalled all drivers this error stopped but the STOP codes: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQAUL 0x0000000A, 0x00000124,0x00000101,SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION 0x0000003B are now happening. I have re installed the Nvidia drivers twice already.


    That's a memory issue I believe, do you know how to do a memory test?

    What makes the lenovo's AMD Radeon HD 6620G better?


    It's dedicated, instead of being part of the processor it is it's own chip.

    Edit: That one isn't dedicated, but AMD graphics are generally better than Intel.

    Hmm it sets the RAM at 1376 instead of 1333, I have all RAM slots installed. Also I got this: The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x000000de (0x0000000000000002, 0xfffff8a010d018e0, 0xfffff8e010d018e1, 0x00000002dd0bc8c0). A dump was saved in: C:\Windows\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: 121611-20810-01. it was from a long time ago, will upload newer ones if you want. Could also post RAM and CPU timing from monitor if necessary. I have already ran Windows HDD diagnostics nothing, one stick RAM tests nothing, Memtest86 for over 11 hours nothing, and Windows Memory diagnostics.


    That error is for corrupted system files, specifically drivers.
    I can't really tell you exactly which drivers are causing the problem, but I am guessing the display drivers.
