  • Originally posted by eycel A 550m is a very powerfull graphics card indeed, and at resolutions of 1366x768 that card will score over 10k in 3dmark06 as well as do very well in vantage and 3dmark11.  When you start to get over 10k in 3dmark06 even th…
  • Originally posted by Ridelynn I chuckled when I read this. First off, I agree with the last paragraph. Good call. As far as the previous paragraph. Your entitled to your opinion, and you are correct in the fact that a lot of people do play games…

  • Originally posted by sudo First of all, lol at sitting far away from the tv comments. It's not 1980 and the TV OP is about to buy isn't a lamp tv... OP, I'm using a 32 samsung hdtv as my monitor, which means I'm sitting right in front of it and it…
  • The main problem with using a TV as a monitor is that you're almost definitely going to be using it at 1080p. As it is a TV, you should be sitting a considerable distance away from it. 1080p from such a far distance makes words unreadable. It's also…
  • Originally posted by Vindictus After I used it enough to get used to the buttons, I find myself using it for everything, non-gaming and gaming alike. You can program the keys easily to do whatever you need. It's quite nice. Indeed. It's great…
  • Originally posted by eycel lol 106, 108, rolf...its like your saying there is gddr3 in one and gddr5 memory in the other.  The cards are similar in performance, its not like the 555 is going to compleatly demolish the 550.  In game performance will …

  • Originally posted by Quizzical There are a lot of different ways to switch between a discrete card and integrated graphics, and they all have some serious drawbacks.  There is, you manually tell it to switch, but the computer has to reboot in order …
  • Originally posted by Quizzical One alternative is to get a laptop with discrete switchable graphics, so that it switches between a discrete video card and integrated graphics.  When you're not playing games, the discrete card can shut down and the l…

  • Originally posted by Quizzical 4)  That's probably the sort of thing that, if you need it, then you know it.  Honestly, I don't know what Wireless HD is, either.  My best guess is that it's a way to output the laptop's monitor signal wirelessly to a…
  • For that price, you could get an M17x with a 6990M. 12 GB of RAM won't really help you over 4 GB when it comes to gaming and there's no real reason to need 1.5 TB of space on a laptop. Overall, you'd get better gaming performance out of the M17x, so…
  • If you do decide on Alienware, get the 4 year accidental damage warranty. It might take a bit of hassle, but if you ever want to upgrade, just smash/spill something on your computer and get it completely replaced. Their policy states that they will …
