I guess I'm really not using a laptop to replace my current desktop, it's more of an additional computer I can use around traveling and whatnot, but I decided that if I'm gonna drop cash on one I should at least get something nice!! I'll eventually get around to building a new computer/replacing this current Desktop SOMETIME because it's getting pretty outdated. I'm completely fine with how my desktop runs right now however for everything else! It pretty much does exactly everything I need it to do besides playing some higher end games.
That's exactly the kind of games I was thinking about!! Probably emulators like GGPO, Skullgirls, SF4, KOF XIII SE, Civilization 5, Team Fortress 2, some shmups, etc. are gonna be the bulk of my gaming, because I really don't buy a lot of "recent" AAA title games for my PC, like Crysis and Skyrim. I'll usually buy those on PS3 instead. The most recent game I can remember trying to play but had trouble with was Dark Souls, I couldn't run that worth a crap 3: But Pentagram hit the nail on the head, my PC's being bottlenecked by the REST of my system, since I have an okay graphics card (GeForce 9800 GTX, 909 rating on that benchmark site) but nothing else in my computer is up to date for gaming.Derp wrote:...as long as you make sure you get one with a powerful GPU you should be ok if you're not expecting it to run recent games on high settings. If you want something to play games like Ultra SF4, Skullgirls, KoF XIII SE, LoL, DotA 2, SC2, etc., games that don't have high sys requirements, you shouldn't even have to spend that much.
AND you make a really good point about heat, I didn't think about how hot a Laptop would get. O_O I guess I could live with it, although I assume if I'd be "gaming" with it, it'd be on a table wherever I'm at instead of my lap. But I'll have to keep that in mind while I'm shopping around, it didn't even cross my mind!
I'm completely new to Guilty Gear BTW! I never played any of the games before, I hopped into training mode with Sol for about an hour and watched some Guilty Bits episodes and I can already tell this game's gonna be REALLY complicated. O_O I'm gonna have to find a character I like- which I really like May so far!!- and we'll have to practice with each other!!
