  1. This is true. Have up updated your graphics driver? Download nvidea experience. You will have an icon in the taskbat, right click and go to experience. Load fm into the games it can do it automatically. Then upgrade your graphics driver.
  2. You'd need to severely increase your budget. I don't know how any game would fare based on specs of the computer alone, but that processor is similar to a 2nd generation processor, and we are moving into the 8th/9th gen of processors. However, it is above minimum spec so should be ok. It would depend on how many leagues and database size that you load.
  3. It ain't great, but will run the game. Graphics if playing 3d should be set to low.
  4. Its not just processing between games that will be faster. You can load lots and lots of leauges and large database. The i9 9000k has the fastest aingle thread performance and fm is still lafgely processed in the single thread. That is the reason they are buying it. But as they said they might wait. I would love to get the i9 for fm. At the moment not a good time as buying a house, kids and all that. Money tied up. But some day.
  5. The i7 3770 is a very good processor and should handle full FM really well. I'd recommend upping the RAM to 16 gb (if not already) or you could as far as I remember head up to 32gb for that processor. Some parts of the game are reliant on RAM - so more the merrier in my book. That's about right for that laptop - it should be fine for both.
  6. I don't know much about FM Touch. If someone wants to spend £2000 on a laptop then so be it, I'm not in control of their budget, I can just pick from a list. You can build a Desktop for considerably cheaper and it's easier to upgrade by sourcing your own parts. But if you can build your own desktop computer from scratch you are more than likely not requiring advice here, as it's quite advanced. You do pay a bit extra after picking parts and having the computer assembled by someone with the knowledge to put it all together and it comes with a guarantee. Which is fair.
  7. The specification below has been formatted so you can easily copy and paste this to our forums when discussing your specification.

  8. I Can't see into the future. But going on past teleases the specs do not generally change dramatically. Should be fine
  9. It will play the game, but it is under spec. Its up to you.
  10. Not good, doesn't meet minimum requirements unfortunately, buyer-beware!
  11. FM isn't heavy on graphics, so if it's the only game you play then it's a waste. On the other hand, you could play other games either way. 2 free games seems sweet. For what it's worth they are near identical https://dev1.notebook-check.com/index.php?id=844 Either is fine. If you want to save money go for the cheaper version. If you want slightly better performance go for the more expensive option.
