  1. Talking of upgrading RAM would you say that installing 32GB rather than 16GB would be overkill when the laptop in question is only used to play football manager, as i recently purchased the HP above, which i am very pleased with. have purchased an external 1tb drive for storing large files etc.
  2. Thanks for that @Gangor i have looked a lot online, and like you said before the ASUS TUF laptops have lots of issues with cooling, have seen reviews on the ACER which mentions fans can be noisy. and i understand that at my price point some sacrifices have to be made, but would imagine that any other them would be a massive improvement on my current laptop that is a i5 5200u with integrated graphics and 8gb of RAM, so all advice is greatly appreciated. and with regards to RAM and storage can add more down the line when funds allow, and as I only really play FM and perhaps something like broken sword. and thanks again for your help and patience.
  3. thanks for that @Kajocfc that makes sense so does justify the higher cost then.
  4. Hi @Smurf can i pick you brains for what it was that made the Acer above better that the HP linked below, so I can get a better understanding of what to consider in future many thanks again for all your help so far. you and the others on here do a fantastic job of helping people make informed choices. https://www.amazon.co.uk/HP-Pavilion-15-ec1001na-Gaming-Laptop/dp/B0877L4KMD?tag=georiot-trd-21&ascsubtag=trd-gb-8150257581319843000-21&th=1
  5. Hi, looking at purchasing this laptop this week https://www.amazon.co.uk/HP-Pavilion-15-ec1001na-Gaming-Laptop/dp/B0877L4KMD?tag=georiot-trd-21&ascsubtag=trd-gb-8150257581319843000-21&th=1 and wondered if there was anything in the one below that would justify the extra cost involved apart from larger hard drive https://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-AN515-44-Gaming-Display-Windows/dp/B089BJY21X/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=UKO7O2O49HVU&dchild=1&keywords=acer%2Bnitro%2B5&qid=1595937253&s=computers&sprefix=acer%2B%2Ccomputers%2C131&sr=1-1-spons&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUExQTlVWUlSQTRHUFQ4JmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNjQwODUxMUlSQ05XTU01RjBWRSZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMDMwOTM1MjlMRTRPMUhUVFg2QSZ3aWRnZXROYW1lPXNwX2F0ZiZhY3Rpb249Y2xpY2tSZWRpcmVjdCZkb05vdExvZ0NsaWNrPXRydWU&th=1 I had also seen this one but someone had mentioned that they had bad thermals and ran really hot under load. https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-Wide-View-GeForce-Graphics-Windows/dp/B085P2921Y/ref=pd_vtp_147_3/262-1081147-1563756?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B085P2921Y&pd_rd_r=2bfa2295-21ba-4355-980a-6b4a942e7bb6&pd_rd_w=CLHui&pd_rd_wg=aM9Fw&pf_rd_p=d9372598-6033-49ea-b94e-b8f16bc59396&pf_rd_r=Q3SXH3Q33Y509S9BRHNY&psc=1&refRID=Q3SXH3Q33Y509S9BRHNY Again there is also this but not sure if the graphics card is as good? https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/msi-bravo-15-15-6-gaming-laptop-amd-ryzen-5-rx-5500m-256-gb-ssd-10206090-pdt.html Obviously if there is a better option let me know top end of budget is £750. Thanks again for all your help
  6. Do let us know what its like once you get it as its in the price range I'm looking at.
  7. What about this one? https://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=133W8EA&opt=ABU&sel=NTB it has the latest generation Ryzen 5 processor in it, but a smaller storage
  8. Thanks for you advice, think it might be best to go for the cheaper one you thought was a good balanced one for the price.
  9. Posted yesterday at 03:26 That's a well balanced system for FM. Probably you won't find anything better at the pricepoint. I don't know how good HP's cooling solution, screen etc is so I would suggest checking some reviews. This on the other hand, I have heard overheats. So would either of these be better options, as don't want something that will be overheats. https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/msi-bravo-15-15-6-gaming-laptop-amd-ryzen-7-rx-5500m-512-gb-ssd-10206010-pdt.html https://ao.com/product/133x6eaabu-hp-laptop-black-75692-251.aspx Or are there better options with a top price of £1000. although if i don't need to spend that much to get a decent spec even better.
  10. Seen this online seems a good price, what are peoples thoughts? https://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=133W8EA&opt=ABU&sel=NTB Would the following also be good or not a big enough jump in performance to justify the price difference (this was the most I was looking to spend) https://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/asus-tuf-blue-a15-15-6-gaming-laptop-amd-ryzen-7-gtx-1660-ti-512-gb-ssd-10205355-pdt.html Bearing in mind my current laptop is an I5 5200u with 8gb RAM and integrated graphics Thanks in advance for any advice.
  11. Was having a look around and this looks a cracking buy for the money at £629.97 https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/ZX553VD-DM969T-ASUS-Gaming-ZX553VD-DM969T_2145527.html
