New Laptop/PC- Help Needed

Recommended Posts

How would Ryzen 5 2400G perform in FM?

Graphics vise it looks like it runs some intense games with ease, but what about the CPU itself? How many leagues can one expect to run realistically?

Hello, 

Thanks for getting back, it really has to be a 2 in 1 as I want to play in Tablet Mode, not laptop mode. I was considering the SB2 i7 16GB 512GB which is £2749, but obviously, the cheaper the better.

What would your thoughts be on the HP Spectre 360 15” or the Dell XPS 15” 2 in 1?

As I can’t see many other options to play FM on a tablet than them? 

Unfortunately the link won’t work so not sure what device you’re suggesting. 

Cheers

I've got one of these https://consumer.huawei.com/uk/laptops/matebook/

It runs pretty well but the graphics need to be on low settings and it does get a bit jittery after prolonged continuous use.  That said it is a thing of beauty and a pleasure to use it actually feels more premium than the Surface.  Only 600 grams too so goes nicely in my bag for my commute to work.

The original version which I have is hard to get hold of now but the released a Matebook E version a year or so later which by all accounts is even better

review - https://www.notebookcheck.net/Huawei-MateBook-E-i5-7Y54-HD615-Convertible-Review.291730.0.html

cheapest I could find (black version) - https://ao.com/product/53010bns-huawei-matebook-e-home-laptop-titanium-57757-251.aspx?WT.z_PT=Computing&WT.z_AT=Laptops&WT.z_BR=Huawei&WT.z_FT=Free Standing&WT.z_PC=53010BNS&WT.srch=1&WT.z_MT=Affiliate&WT.z_RTM=PHG&WT.srch=1&WT.z_MT=genieshopping&WT.z_RTM=PHG&WT.z_CN=1101l4683&WT.z_AG=PPC&WT.z_AT=&WT.z_KW=genieshopping

FWIW I run 12 leagues on full-fat FM and the processing is quick.

It's comparable to 7th Gen i5 Cpu's so can run as many leagues as you like more or less.

if you check out the benchmarking thread here the Ryzen 5 1600 is performs slightly better than the i5 7400

How fast "fast" is for you though is subjective.  I'd say though that it will run most of Europe and Brazil and Agentina (a common setup) really well.

These Ryzen chips are looking like a compelling choice for people on a budget for FM who aren't too fussed on absolute maximum graphics settings.  You'll be saving a fortune on a graphics card.  I hope there are some Ryzen users on here who can let us know because i'm considering Ryzen for my next build

I don't know much about computers, but I'm surprised to hear that, since it's quite a bit cheaper. And the integrated graphics don't look half bad either, based on the reviews I've read, they're miles ahead of Intel's graphics. I thought that maybe the CPU itself was way worse because of that, but sounds like it should be a good budget pick for FM?

If your budget is £1500, and you don't need a keyboard/mouse/monitor/speakers, just the main PC tower, I'd go with something like this.

One of the best processors out there at the moment (most important bit for FM), a high spec graphics card, decent amount of RAM (if you can afford it, I'd pay the extra to get 16GB, but that's me), and has plenty of hard drive space whilst also having an SSD for fast boot-up and to put my main games on.

Need everything mate. Haven't had a desktop for well over 13 years, still undecided at the minute to be honest. That set up looks good though, not that I really know what I'm looking for

Yeah, a great budget pickup.  Especially if like me FM is the only game you play and you can cope with good but not great graphics.  Hell, you can always save up for a graphics card for a later date

In terms of a build if you really budget you can get this

Obviously go for a more powerful PSU if you intend to add a graphics card at a later date

In that case, I've tweaked the PC to include a monitor, keyboard, mouse and speakers, with only a small knock on the processor type, but still more than good enough for FM18, 19, and any in the immediate future.

Really appreciate your help, thanks! Was looking at something exactly like this.

Only issue could be the A320M motherboard though, since it apparently requires a BIOS update. B450 costs a few bucks more, but should be guaranteed to work from the box.

I ended up going for this one https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/FX504GD-E4278T-ASUS-FX504GD-E4278T-Gaming-Laptop_2315681.html

Wouldn't let me check out the previous one, so hopefully the new one will do the job.

Thank you for your help @Smurf

HELP

I'm really undecided on FM2019 due to my Macbook

FM2018 ran really slowly on my old Macbook, and even if just running one country was really slow.

Is there any upgrades/cards i can do to my macbook to help the performance?

Thanks

yeah its an issue, newer A320M boards do have the update but i'm not sure how you'd know when buying online.

If you are thinking of building your own make sure to read jonnyguru reviews of PSU's.  The power supply is the backbone of any PC and its the corner that is always cut in pre built systems.  Its the only thing I won't compromise on even on a budget.

If anyone thinks that building your own will be hard, I built my first in an afternoon using youtube tutorials and I can't even put up a shelf usually, it's more like lego these days

What Macbook do you have?

I don't know an awful lot about Macs tbh but you could add an SSD if you haven't already which will make your Mac feel generally quicker.  Unfortunately though, as alluded to by Smurf on this thread, it won't really make a huge difference to FM other than save/load times.

Best thing yo can do is try the Demo and hope they've made processing more streamlined.

For FM get the i7, FM will never use more than 8gb RAM and you can always add memory at a later date

Aye, the i7 is a great processor, I always go for them, so if you can stretch over £1500, that'd be what I'd upgrade for FM.

I really can't decide between those, or a Surface Pro with the 1050.

Would the Surface Pro 6 be good enough then? As my Surface Pro 3 is no longer good enough with the latest FM, hence why I’m looking for an upgrade?

So I think I have narrowed it down to two laptops but wanted to check what people on here think.

https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/FX504GM-EN150T-ASUS-FX504GM-EN150T-Gaming-Laptop_2344467.html

 

if anyone can help me decide that would be great, I don’t mind paying 1500 if it will make a difference to my fm experience if anyone has some suggestions?

To both, all your options will be great for FM.

If you can afford it then the more expensive second options in your posts are the better hardware, especially @hursty2 as the Intel or AMD decision always won out by Intel based on the small sample in the yearly benchmark threads that have been done since FM14.

For your average FM’er who also does not lock the cpu frequency at the max setting the 7700HQ is probably the better option if there is a cost saving as they’ll not push game processing to use the additional cores & turbo boost frequency of the 8750H.

Hi,

I have reading the forum that some people (especially smurf) have been very actively helping a lot of people with suggestions of which new system to get for the upcoming FM 2019, which lead me to ask for your suggestions.

I have been using a MacBook Pro 15 since early 2013 and got quite use to it and apple care has been great for 3/4 year but apple doesn’t sell apple care beyond that period and my graphics card got over heated (fried) n needs to be changed which is very expensive and the warranty is only for 6 months after repairs. So I wanna get a new laptop preferably something light (ultra book) and not a thick gaming laptop. Need help choosing one! The thing is, I feel Apple hasnt done anything earth shattering on their laptops for a while and have been lagging behind with updating the hardware. So I am considered returning back to the Windows, but what’s been bothering me is:

  1. I don’t do video editing etc but I work in marketing and sales in the media & advertising industry and usually get creatives in Adobe illustrator or CoralDraw from clients which I need to open and discuss with my creative and operations teams so don’t need a very heavy duty graphics card but would want my new laptop to be able to play and watch 3D match engine on FM. Therefore, would integrated graphic work or do I need dedicated GPU? Don’t want a thick or heavy laptop. What would you suggest?
  2. I have looked at XPS 13 and 15 and before 2013 was using and XPS 15 laptop, but it is possible to play FM 19 on XPS 13 with 3D match engine? I usually only play 4 or 5 nations (Eng till L2, Spain Segunda division, ITA Serie B, Fra Lige 2 and Ger 2nd division with large Database).
  3. I’m open to a thin gaming laptop (I hope they are not very expensive) but don’t like too much RGB lighting on it as need it for work.
  4. The Brand should have international warranty, as I sometimes travel for work upto 3-4 months at a stretch.

Spec shortlist so far: 8th Gen i7, 16GB, min 256/512 SSD, 4K or Fast FHD Touch screen

 

Feel free to ask for anymore info you need.

 

Thank you in advance

The positives: It has a better graphics card however the 1050 in the other is fine for FM at the moment, it also has more RAM but again the 16GB in the other is fine.

The Negatives: It does not have an SSD, doesn’t make any difference for FM but does slow laptop boot time, the main negative is the chassis the other one is designed with gaming in mind so has better airflow  & an upgraded air cooling system that will be better at keeping temps down when playing FM which depending on your game setup can be very demeaning on the hardware which increases the excess heat that’s generated.

Personally I’d go for the Omen, even with the extra cost because the more efficent heat management is worth it.

Need some input on a new laptop, will just be used for browsing and FM but It will be for a network game not one I'm running myself. Would I be right in thinking that I would just need a decent enough Graphics card in it to take care of the interface and match engine the rest of the grunt work will be done by the hosts PC? So I could negate the need for decent Ram and possibly an SSD?

I'm looking to buy my next gaming laptop (for the next 5 years). Here in the US, I see the usual big brands at BestBuy, but come across some obscure brands that look like a great deal. 

Can you please recommend the best gaming laptop brands in the US today?

Is this EVO brand a reliable one?

Looking for some help when it comes buying a laptop. My budget probably is about 800 ish max. Would love a graphics card where I could play FM in high settings for a change as the last couple I’ve had to play on the lowest setting. What’s different playing fm on the highest or high graphics setting in comparison to the lowest or low setting? 

Would a GeForce gtx 1050ti 2GB or 4GB thereabouts enable me to play at the higher settings or would I need to go higher?

Also I’d only be using the laptop for FM gaming wise too. 

Any help would be great.

Hi all.

I've narrowed down the laptop I will go for to these two:

Cheaper & 8 RAM: https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/A556UQ-DM1469T-ASUS-Vivobook-A556UQ-DM1469T_2255403.html

More expensive & 16 RAM: https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/FX504GD-DM346T-ASUS-FX504GD-DM346T-Gaming-Laptop_2387834.html

Is the RAM really worth the extra £250? I'll go for it if it is as it'll be a long term investment and I'm only really going to play FM on it, browse the net, use Office. I want the best FM experience possible with a large database and all top devision S & N American and European leagues.

Thanks in advance!

It's not just RAM, it's everything: the processor (H is better than U), hybrid drive (vs mechanic), and the graphic card is much superior too.

So I’ve read a good few pages on this thread trying to work it out myself and now my head hurts. 

I’ve ended up on this https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/A556UQ-DM1469T-ASUS-Vivobook-A556UQ-DM1469T_2255403.html

can anyone see any problems there? I’m trying to run FM as best I can while being as stingy as I can (while getting a laptop instead of a desktop PC). I know next to nothing about laptops but from what I’ve read this should be a good fit? I have read that i7 is good, and 8GB of ram should be more than enough for FM? I think I read that SSD has no impact on game processing speed, just boot up times so if I’m being tight, no SSD is fine? I have no idea what graphics stuff I need, or what this laptop offers but hopefully someone smarter than myself can let me know if this will suffice? 

I think the laptop linked should have FM running nicely, would just be nice if someone could let me know I haven’t gone wrong somewhere, or that I’m not over paying for something I don’t need to be.

Also if I wanted to “add” SSD in the future, is that something I could do with this laptop?

Thanks!
