Thanks it will be alot easier know since i can talk to someone who actually has the laptop im after. Thats the thing though mate. When you do watch your games in 3D on your laptop is the match engine as smooth as this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70UoJ...eature=related?

And if you dint know can you just try your 3d match engine and see please because right know my match engine is jerky

Doubt it mate as the processor is not the best and it won`t have dedicated graphics.

This means that the the pc doesn`t use memory from your pc so that you can play games and things like that.
The dedicated graphics card has memory of its own which allows you to play the games.

NVIDIA and ATI are dedicated, which means they are added to your mother board and are exclusively geared towards delivering much superior graphics.

Integrated means a crappy card that is just enough for basic computing but not for gaming. Avoid it!

If you wanna play games, the computer has to have a dedicated graphic card, period.

This seems to be the consensus - but have SI made FM to complicted with regards to the 3-D in terms of people needing a pretty good graphics card in order to use the 3-D facility (or play it smoothly). I mean I have recently order a laptop - pretty up to date that has a decent processer and RAM etc to increase performance but I thought after some research that the graphics card would be fine to be able to play the 3-D aspect of FM. But it seems I have been mistaken - fair enough I will need a dedicated graphics card to play and proper 'gamming' game such as COD etc but I dont think FM should be in this catagory and I think that SI has made FM less playable to an extent adue to the restrictions of such a superior graphics card. I mean how graphicaly demanding is the 3-D of FM - I'm no expert but I would not say that they have pushed gamming to the next century if you get what i mean - I just dont see how the basic nature of the 3-D in FM can warrant quite a high tech graphic card.

I'm no expert in computers - just as Ive been looking recently it seems this is a bit of a snag. I mean how many people on these threads have a dedicated graphics crad - I would presume it is certainly a lot less than half. I could be wrong though.

if your on a budget.. i have no idea why your buying from pcworld tbh...

check out mesh or pcspecialist if i were you...

and tbh.. if youve got 2gb ram and 512mb graphics card.. you'll be able to run 3d on fm no problem whatsoever...

I am also a Dell Inspiron 1545 user and the 3D engine works well for me. Don't use 3D though; 2D Ftw.

phd_angel
07-04-2010, 20:21
well, to play in 2D even my oldie 1987 286 pc will do... but later then, don't complain why it cannot run 54 leagues from 39 different countries...

If you can't go over £430 you will struggle to find a laptop which runs the 3d on full detail and smoothly, which is how the YouTube video appears to be set up. Best you could hope for is that it runs smoothly with the detail turned down a bit. There is probably a laptop out there for you but you would have to look beyond traditional high street retailers like PC World.

With regards the ATI 4200. That would likely be better than the Intel 4500 integrated graphics but it still has to share its memory so its not really a dedicated card as such and will perform accordingly.

The top one appears to be slightly better (but probably slightly more expensive), although I don't know if the processors are any good as I prefer intel chipsets.

It may well struggle to be smooth on the 3D match engine with only 512MB graphic memory. A little info:

You pay for what you get on laptops costing £400 - functional but not particularly powerful enough for gaming.
