P.S I have the option to upgrade my card to a AMD Radeon HD 6970M for 250$ more, should I go for it?








The requirements for Diablo 3 haven't been released yet, but it's Blizzard, which means that the requirements will be stupidly low.

That can easily handle Ultra on SC, so I'm guessing that it can run Diablo on at least High, if not also Ultra.

By the way, how much is that costing? And where are you getting it from?
From Digital storm online. Its the level 2 x17 laptop.

Cost: $1,629.00 (default), $1887 with the HD 6970M upgrade.

Thats pretty expensive.

I built a superior desktop for like 600 dollars less. 2gig 6950, i5 2500k, 8gb 1600mhz

Only problem is I don't have use for a desktop in college, wish I could but I need an all purpose laptop for school work and games. :/ And not really a computer wiz, not all too comfortable building one.

I see.

Just out of curiosity does that CPU have turbo mode? I think it does, like up to 2.9GHz maybe? But Im to lazy to look it up and remember.

I'm not positive how laptops work. I build desktops all the time, but desktop power consumption isn't as big of a concern as laptop, since the laptop is on a battery. If you can turbo boost the CPU, then turn on Speedstep, C1E, and C-State (it should come already on 99% of the time anyway) it will go to 2.9Ghz under a load (if that is the right turbo boost clock) and drop down to a lower clock when idle to reduce power consumption.

One way or the other, it should run games fine. CPU clock speed isn't as important as the actual make and model of the CPU. Like a i7 990x at 3.5Ghz is still better than my 2500k at 4.3ghz.
