    New Laptop/PC - Help Needed

    After looking at the 7300hq I can't see much of a difference in terms of FM really. Probably is wise to opt for the new tech in the 8300h in that case.

    I'm still on the fence with this - the 8300H has faster turbo - but 7700HQ has faster base speed. And FM as last reading of this is still largely single core based in processing, except in matches played in the background which are multi-core but so fast having extra cores doesn't make a difference. I'd still for now go with a processor with a higher base frequency over higher turbo.

    Not worth it. This if you're not too bothered about the graphics and 3D mode being on low settings https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/9S7-16JD21-068-MSI-Prestige-PL62-7RC-068UK-in-Sliver_2197296.html This would be extremely good too https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/GL553VE-DM292T-ASUS-ROG-Strix-GL553VE-DM292T-Gaming-Lap_2203029.html This if you really want the graphics and 3d settings https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/9S7-16JB92-880-MSI-GP62MVR-7RFX(Leopard-Pro)-880UK_2185471.html
  4. I used to load just one league and start with Barcelona. Play for a season. Then start over. No fear of being sacked, if you are just start again. Other approaches I've had are to start as unemployed, and let the game find you an opportunity. You'll take on a low enough team, and you won't be well known so expectations won' tbe high. Again, 1 league, and play a season and start over. Once you have the hang of it - you can then start a real game and pick a team of your choosing.

    No - the minimum specs require 2.2ghz speed for the processor. Yours is 1.5ghz - and it's an entry level processor - which would likely struggle with FM.

    I probably won't, I've looked many times before.

    I don't see anything really, it's not the best site for browsing laptop specs.

    Yeh looks good. SsD doesnt really help FM - but overall you will have a faster boot up and shut down. I wouldnt go back to a normal hard drive after having ssd

    Neither of them suitable Going by your budget of approx 600 https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/9S7-16JD21-068-MSI-Prestige-PL62-7RC-068UK-in-Sliver_2197296.html

    Must haves when playing FM

    Ha ha - same. I woke up one morning and had Ronaldo at Barcelona (obv a long time ago). Also woke up to a new signing that cost £152m in FM12. I literally cannot do anything else when playing FM - not even watch telly, well I can but I can never follow what's going on. After a night of debauchary, tv show watching, fm playing, I usually have to catch up on the shows for a 2nd time, tidy up the beer cans, and do some damage control of the havoc I unleashed to the team. Then realise, I haven't eaten anything since noon yesterday - probably should get some food into me BEFORE I start playing again!

    It's good enough. Bit of an ask - but an extra 100 gets you this https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/9S7-16JD21-068-MSI-Prestige-PL62-7RC-068UK-in-Sliver_2197296.html Which would be better. This is refurbished but it's A+ rating which should be in good nick - and it's only an extra £30 https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/ZX553VD-DM968T(C)-GRADE-A-ASUS-Gaming-ZX553VD-DM968T_2295756.html https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/grading
