    Upgrading my gaming experience, I guess

    I allready own the wii and have had great times with it but know I am going to purchase a Portable Pc and would like to know if itll be able to power COD4, CSS or eventually Chrysis. All I need to do is to play the games without too much problems in the lowest graphical quality. I was going to buy this Insiron on dell but do you you think it'll be sufficient cuz i dont know wich processor is good or wich graphic card to use but carefull it's in french, Sorry:

    Processeur double coeur (heart) Intel® Pentium T2330 (1,6 GHz, FSB 533 MHz, 1 Mo de cache L2)
    Windows Vista® Édition Familiale Premium authentique
    2048 Mo de mémoire bicanale SDRAM DDR2 667 MHz [2x102]
    Hard drive SATA 160 Go (5400 tpm)
    Carte graphique Intel® Graphic Media Accelerator X3100

    Sorry this probbly isn't the right place to post but i couldn't find any computer gamer forums and i know some people here know their stuff.

    liv buy a wii and play it

    Mario strikers football Charged rules

    Even do I reaaali suck

    Dude, don't buy a dell and yeah thats just my opinion, but I have very little faith in Dell products and less in their customer service. If you want an affordable rig I would recommend the following

    ZT Link

    I bought this machine and I am very happy with it, currently I run all of the Orange box on it without any trouble, also run Wow and I did install the demo for UT3 and played it without much trouble. The machine you have listed has integrated graphics if I am not mistaken, and I would not recommend that for any of newer games, frame rates won't keep up.

    Also if you are getting anything with Vista, don't go with anything less than Vista Business or Ultimate Editions, again my opinion but from what I have worked on these two versions seem to be the best.

    i would recommend that you change your proccesor to intel cual core extreme or go with amd phenom quad core. dont go with pentium processors for gaming. amd is better for gaming anyway. also since you are buying it for gaming you should change you chraphics card to ati. ive never liked vista. if you really want to get vista then make sure you have atleast 2 gb of RAM.

    well as long as you have a dual core processor and 2 gb of RAM you should be fine. if you dont care about the graphics dont go with ati. also if your buying it for more than just games dont get AMD.

    Hahahah, stop ingraining his head with ATI fanboy gibberish!

    Absolutely nothing wrong with nVidia for laptop cards, and they're clearly owning the big rig graphics market at the top end.

    Oh yeah...Dells have been getting a bad rap...and they shouldn't be.

    And only a laptop of God will be able to play Crysis.

    i never said anything about nvidia. its a good graphics card, in most areas even better than ati, but ati is more for gaming.

    Lol you wont get far playing games with that right it's got intel intergrated graphics which suck ass!

    Get yourself a mid range Geforce 8 Card and processor wise i'd recommend a Intel Core 2 Duo or if you want to keep the costs down go with a Phenom or Dual Core Athlon.

    Overclockers.com is a good site to get parts , 4gb of ram these days is like £65

    Can you overclock at all? if so buy a cheap Core 2 duo whack in a zalman cooler and oc the crap outta it!
