    I've actually made a decision! I'm getting this:

    http://h40059.www4.hp.com/uk/homelap...erience=direct

    Here comes the obvious question YET again - how many leagues/players?

    Thanks in advance to Ishu or anyone else who knows.

    Ishu, what do you make of this laptop:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/DV6-3119SA-N...2628451&sr=1-6

    Hewlett Packard, Intel Core i5 2.53 GHz, 4GB RAM, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 2202 MB.

    Sounds quite good to me but then I'm not an expert like you!

    How many cores does i5 have?

    How many leagues would I be able to run on FM, would you think?

    And is the graphics card good?

    Thanks in advance.

    CPU and GPU are both outdated.

    I have the samsung laptop, mate. I got it a couple of weeks ago and other than the Nvidia 520M, i can't fault it. The aforementioned GPU is an entry level one, so don't go expecting great things from it. It runs games like minecraft and the 3D part of FM fine and i can run Scotland, England, Spain, Italy, Germany, France, Brazil, Mexico, with large database. i could probably run more, but i don't like using an insane amount of leagues.

    This one is available for 695 in India. Laptops in India are ALWAYS more expensive than similar ones in EU. You will probably get coupons too.

    Look for a similar HP with a 1920x1080 screen. HPs have better build quality, and a faster graphic card. And I hate Acer.

    65 leagues.

    I'm back again Ishu. I finally have a little bit of money to spend (min. £500, max. £600) in order to replace my old laptop, which is more or less on its last legs. I'm really struggling on what I should buy though. I don't even know if it would be best to buy a laptop or a desktop!

    I was thinking of getting a desktop but the main issue is that I have no monitor or any of the other bits and pieces you need. The bonus of a laptop is that you don't have to worry about that, of course. Basically, I want the best spec I can get for my money and if that's a desktop, I'll get a desktop, and vice-versa.

    What I really want is a machine for intensive use. I'm on my machine for huge amounts of time. I wouldn't call myself a gamer particularly but I do play some games and therefore need something decent to cope with that. The main thing I do with my computer is use the Internet a great deal and play games like FM and Minecraft. Therefore, I want the best processor and RAM I can afford for Football Manager purposes. Then, I also want a decent graphics card which will cope with Minecraft with the top settings. So not extreme gaming by a long distance but some ability to cope with the quite basic level graphics in Minecraft and that sort of thing.

    I found this website - http://www.pcspecialist.co.uk/ - which seems to allow you to customise desktops and laptops. They build it for you, which is perfect for me, because I really don't have the confidence to build myself. What do you guys think of this site?

    I'm pretty sure I want an Intel i5 or i7, whatever I can get. I'd also like 4GB RAM minimum. The main thing is that I have no idea at all what constitutes a good graphics card. I don't need something amazing, just enough to play FM with high 3D settings if I want, and the same with Minecraft on high settings. Any advice guys? I'd really appreciated it as I'm struggling to work out what would be best for me.

    Thanks Wally. That fills me with a bit of confidence to buy from them. It does seem like a good way of doing it.

    I've heard good thing about that site on this forum. Wally seems to be happy too.
    But they don't offer many options tbh. They go from a nameless powersupply to a high end one. No middle end option.
    Only ASUS motherboards etc.

    I would recommend you to watch some howto build videos on youtube.
    If you still think that you can't build yourself and can't get a friend or pro to build it for you, get the i5 2400, 4GB, H61 Mobo, HD 6670.

    Hi Ishu, it seems you are the man to talk to.. please can you offer any advice on my earlier post?
    Thanks
    Rob

    Hi all, i have looked through this forum but please help if you can,

    I have played FM for as long as i can remember and am looking to buy a new laptop. The main purpose of said laptop will be to play football manager but also watch tv, i.e bbc iplayer and 4OD, store music and files, chat, webcam etc. I normally run 3-5 countries max and watch highlights, although i am old school so mainly just text, rather than the whole graphic experience.
    My only problem is the graphics card, whats good for highlights etc bit also watching tv/films? Should i look for dedicated cards or is built in graphics ok? I have a budget of £500 max if that helps.
    From what i gather a processor of 2ghz or more, 4gb of ram, 500gb of memory and a decent graphics card is all that i need to run this fine game quickly.
    At the moment i play it from a basic Acer which is far below the spec but still somehow plays the game!

    2nd one is much better than the first.

    Infact I just linked it 6 posts above (4GB/500GB version).

    I would get the 4GB version for 50 pounds cheaper. You won't need the extra 2GB RAM. Also it would be cheaper to upgrade to that a lot more than that.

    A quick question...

    I'm currently using a Quad Core machine with 4GB ddr2 RAM. How much of a difference would I notice with FM if I upgraded the RAM to 8gb DDR2? I currently can run a LOT of leagues and speed isn't too bad.

    FM cannot and doesn't need to use more than 4GB RAM.

    I thought I'd read that somewhere before too, good job I decided to ask the question. Cheers for the reply, saved me money as I won't bother with the upgrade now!

    Many thanks Ishu.

    I don't know what the last two things refer to (i.e. H61 Mobo and HD6670). Could you let me know what you meant by this?

    Anyway, I think that I probably will go with PC Specialist, Ishu.

    What do you think of the following selections:

    Intel Core i5-2400 Quad Core (3.10GHz, 6MB Cache + HD Graphics)

    Asus P8P67 LE:USE 3.0, SATA 6.0GB/s, CrossFireX

    8GB Samsung DDR3 Dual-DDR3 1333MHz (2x4GB)

    1GB Nvidia Geforce GT 520 - DVI, HDMI, VGA - 3D Vision Ready

    1TB Serial ATA 3-Gb/s Hard Drive with 16MB Cache (7,200rpm)

    24 x Dual Layer DVD Writer

    Internal 52 in 1 Card Reader

    350W Dual Rail PSU + 120mm Case Fan

    Intel Socket LGA1155/1156 Standard CPU Cooler

    Onboard 6 Channel (5.1) High Def Audio (as standard)

    Onboard Gigabit LAN & Wireless 802.11N 300Mbsp PCI Card

    6 x USB 2.0 standard

    Windows 8 HP 64bit

    19" Widescreen TFT 1360x768 2MS, D-Sub, DVI, 18/5 Panel

    Logitech MK250 Wireless Keyboard and Mouse combo


    I picked fairly standard, default choices for most stuff unless it was something I knew about. It comes to £690 btw. Does that represent decent-ish value?

    There are a few things that I'm not sure about.

    First of all, the graphics card. I picked one of the cheaper ones. Is that going to be all right for FM and Minecraft?

    Secondly, the sound card. I just went for the default onboard setting. Is that going to be okay or would I be better with something else? I'm not that bothered about sound. To be honest, I prefer to put my headphones on when on the computer, so I probably won't even bother buying speakers.

    Thirdly, is the monitor all right? I'm guessing I could probably get a better deal elsewhere, so I might not bother with the monitor. I wondered specifically about the resolution 1260x768. Would I be better off with 1920x1080?

    Finally, how many leagues could I run with that set-up on FM? I'm eager to know!

    Thanks again,
    Crouchy.

    Intel Core i5-2400 Quad Core (3.10GHz, 6MB Cache + HD Graphics) Possibly get the 2500k. Not much extra money. Better onboard GPU and allows OCing

    Asus P8P67 LE:USE 3.0, SATA 6.0GB/s, CrossFireX This Motherboard does NOT allow onboard GPU. Get a H67 (On board, No OC) or Z68 (OC and Onboard both). If you aren't getting the 2500K I mentioned above, get a H61. The H67/Z68 should replace the Bolded part.

    1GB Nvidia Geforce GT 520 - DVI, HDMI, VGA - 3D Vision Ready HD6670

    350W Dual Rail PSU + 120mm Case Fan A little Better?

    Finally, how many leagues could I run with that set-up on FM? I'm eager to know! 65 on 2400, 80 on 2500k

    The Viewsonic VP2365wb 23" is also a nice monitor - much cheaper than the U2311 (which is one of the best, if not the best, 23" monitor on the market) for a little less quality.

    Hi guys,

    I used to play FM back in 06/07/08/09 but circumstances changed and I went off for a couple of years. Anyway looking to get back into it for FM12 this year, and just bought a new laptop (unrelated to FM...) for gaming and artistic stuff. I assume that it would be powerful enough to run a fair amount of leagues etc, but does anyone know what the required specs are to run like 20+?

    My laptop: I7 2720QM @2.2GHz, 16GB 1666mhz, GTX485m 2GB, 500GB Seagate Momentus Hybrid HD.

    Thanks for any help! Looking forward to jumping back into the game.

    EDIT: With regard to some of the posts above, I thought I might mention that I want the game to run pretty smoothly - I'm not interested in running a million leagues to have it lag constantly. I know when it was first released the 3D engine was quite demanding on the system...

    The i7-2720QM should be able to run FM11 with onboard graphics. That laptop could probably run 50+ leagues...

    16 GB of RAM (I didn't know you could even fit that on a laptop) and that video card is overkill - doesn't it match the Radeon 6970M? It's overkill for a lot of gaming laptops.

    Hi Ishu,

    Right, I'm with you now on most things!

    Will look into the 2500k and get it if it isn't much more expensive.

    I'll get the Z68 motherboard to allow intergrated graphics then.

    The graphics card you mention doesn't seem to come up in my list of options. Instead, I get the following:
    AMD Radeon HD5670/6570/6450. Would it be better to pick oine of those that the Nvidia ones?

    When you say a better PSU etc., what would you consider to be the best ooption?

    And yes, it was a typo for Windows 8! I meant Windows 7.

    I think I'll definitely try to get a monitor elsewhere.

    Good to know that onboard sound will be decent enough.

    And 65 or 80 leagues on FM sounds fantastic to me!

    For some reason, the forum isn't allowing me to edit my posts. Sorry for the typos above. I've typed it out again below!

    I tried Minecraft on a friend's HP laptop with Intel HD3000 and it runs fine Maxxed out. It was using a lot more of the CPU & RAM (i7 2630QM & 4GB) than the GPU.

    Also 4GB RAM should be enough for now. Corsair is better and cheaper anyway (2x4GB for 30 bucks).

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/CORSAIR-Memo.../dp/B004FMCJQM

    With 4GB RAM and onboard, it comes out to be 622.

    And I can see a lot of Ati cards there . HD5670/HD6570 is overkill anyway. You don't need better than that. 670 with this.

    Excellent. That's what I like to hear. I know the laptop is pretty powerful, but like I said I haven't been keeping up with FM in the last couple of years.
    Regarding the ram/video card - I got them on a sweet deal, I do a fair amount of gaming etc, but I like to do other stuff like 3D modelling etc that might be graphics intensive. Plus, by making the extra investment now (which was rather cheap) I like to know it will last or a good couple of years without replacing parts etc. And yes, I like to think it can top the 6970

    Cheers Ishu. Think I'm getting closer to knowing what I want now.

    How about the PSU? You mentioned getting something better? 450W maybe?

    Maybe a better hard drive too? I think perhaps something that would perform better?

    450W is good.

    There are a few HDs mentioned there,
    HD - Generic.
    WD Green - Slightly slower but also quiet and cooler.
    WD Black - Opposite of WD Green. Much more expensive though.
    Rest - SSDs. Expensive.

    Thanks for all of your Ishu.

    I think I'm pretty settled on the spec now and have taken on board all of your advice.

    I think I may buy slightly less RAM and settle for less hard disc space to save on the cost for now. I can always upgrade these in the future when more money is available (i.e. buy more RAM and get a second HDD)!

    Spec I'm thinking of:

    Intel Core i5-2400 Quad Core (3.10GHz, 6MB Cache + HD Graphics)

    Asus P8Z68-V:USB 3.0, SATA 6.0GB/s, NVDIA SLI, ATICrossFireX

    4GB Samsung DDR3 Dual-DDR3 1333MHz (2x4GB)

    1GB AMD Radeon HD5670

    500GB WD Caviar Black WD5002AALX, SATA 6 GB/s, 32MB Cache,

    24 x Dual Layer DVD Writer

    Internal 52 in 1 Card Reader

    450W Dual Rail PSU + 120mm Case Fan

    Intel Socket LGA1155/1156 Standard CPU Cooler

    Onboard 6 Channel (5.1) High Def Audio (as standard)

    Onboard Gigabit LAN & Wireless 802.11N 300Mbsp PCI Card

    6 x USB 2.0 standard

    Windows 7 HP 64bit


    How's that looking now?

    Will buy monitor and keyboard/mouse separately to get the best cheap deal I can on them.

    Nice.

    But as you aren't going with the 2500k, you don't need to get the Z68. A H67 or even a H61 would be enough.

    Ah right. I thought I was getting the Z68 for integrated graphics?

    By H67, you mean the ASUS® P8P67? Or am I getting confused?

    On the list of motherboards, I only have a few choices coming up, and the P8P67 and Z68 are the two main ones I have to pick between. I think the P8P67 doesn't have the integrated graphics.

    Which choices are you getting?

    H61 - Cheap
    H67 - Onboard
    P67 - Overclocking
    Z68 - Combo of H67 and P67. You don't need this because your CPU doesn't support overclocking.

    I have a laptop with the i7 2630QM, 8GB 1333mhz and GT550M 2GB. With this I run close to 60 leagues (not all are playable), so you should have no problems with your laptop.
    And I even use the onboard CPU graphics (HD3000) as FM11 crashes during the 3d matches, if I use the GT550M card.

    I'm really terrible with PC's, I honestly don't have a clue. Could anyone give me a recommendation, in between the prices of £300-£600 pounds. I use my computer for
    graphic design, and FM!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Preferably a desktop. Would love to run FM with quite a few leagues. At the moment, I only run the English leagues as my Laptop is so bad!

    Considering buying this: http://h40059.www4.hp.com/uk/homelap...5sa_ds_ene.pdf

    I can get it for around £460; is this good value and a good laptop? I’ve been happy with my current HP laptop.

    Standard question: how many leagues?

    Its main purposes would be for using Microsoft Office and good speed internet (for university work), along with Football Manager (I’m not interested in playing matches in 3D, if that makes a difference). I would also like to be able to play videos to a decent quality, but this is not a vital requirement. I would be looking to store photos and music on my current laptop.

    I see that Ishu has recommended Cosair laptop memory on several occasions on this thread; will I be able to do this if I desire it?

    Computers/laptops aren’t my strong point, although I’ve tried to take onboard previous advice in this thread and from more ‘in the know’ friends to select this laptop, any advice or recommendations from others would be much appreciated.

    Looks good.

    Corsair will work.

    Office, Internet and FM inc 3D will be fine too.

    Hey, To be honest i cant find much better for 379.00 with a dedicated graphics card, my budget is £450 but even that is costly. So can you please have a look at this one or recommend me a cheap one if you can. I only play manager games on my pc and i need something that will last for a good while. Thanks

    http://www.comet.co.uk/p/Laptops/buy...uct_desciption

    Is it good value for money?
    Can i get any better for the price?
    And how many years would it probably last me for?
    If you think i can get better please let me know. Thanks

    Hi guys have looked at last few pages and most of it seems to have gone over my head...so hopefully someone can help.

    Looking for a new desktop/laptop, don't mind which, looking for best value.
    Budget of £400-£500.
    Mainly play FM and would want that to run as smooth as possible and then use for for just general emails/web browsing.
    Would need it to come all assembled without much setup and i'd need everything from keyboard, monitor and base unit.

    any suggestions/recommendations will be gratefully received, thanks!

    www.pcspecialist.co.uk is OK?

    http://community.sigames.com/showthr...55#post7019555
    Check this. Get only 4GB RAM and don't get the graphic card, onboard is good enough.

    Can I get some commission from pcspecialist?

    Sorry our website is currently unavailable due to an update.
    Please come back soon to view our full range. In the meantime, if you'd like to place an order please call 0844 800 95 95.

    EDIT:
    1) Its looks decent. Esp as it has a dGPU.
    2) You can def get a better CPU, but then you'll have to give up on the graphic card.
    3) Hard to say. 2-3.

    @ Crouch Your PM box is full
    spoiler:
    OK I googled a bit and found that these no name PSUs are actually FSP. They are a pretty good brand.

    GTS450 should be fine.

    I'm not sure why we never get a warning message that our PM boxes are full.

    Ishu, top stuff. Thanks! I'm going to go for it!

    Will let you know how it goes when it arrives and how I get on with loading leagues and general performance on FM!

    Thanks for all of your help. I'm quite excited now.

    Thanks Ishu...punching in what you've suggested comes in at £633 (inc. VAT) - including a wireless mouse & keyboard & 19" Monitor.
    Which is a little over my budget but may be able to stretch to it, should be worth it!

    1GB AMD Radeon HD6670, You don't need this.
    And I would get a bigger monitor. Esp with the new FM intelligent interface. Browsing is much better at higher res.

    What size would you recommend? Just has a quick look on Amazon and can get screen's cheaper than listed - what am else am i looking for in terms of monitor specs other than size?
    I had taken the graphics card out and it was still in at that price - £515 for the base + Monitor, + Keyboard + Mouse = £633 i think...

    That's because pcspecialist also take their cut out of your money.
    Also those Dells will probably have poorer mobos, case and psu.

    For monitors check out Dell U2311HM.
