New Laptop/PC- Help Needed

Recommended Posts

Hello I have been looking at purchasing a new desktop PC to play Football Manager on (don't have much luck with laptops and the one I currently have isn't the greatest) but I was taking a look at this PC - https://www.tesco.com/direct/cube-rebellion-turbo-ultra-fast-quad-core-esport-ready-gaming-pc-bundle-with-acer-23-hd-monitor-amd-a-series-quad-core-1000gb-windows-8-integrated-gra/141-5039.prd and was wondering how good would that be for FM?

I would be downloading facepack megapack and a logo megapack along with all the current kits as well as wanting to play a few leagues at a time with a reasonable star limit. 

Would this be a good enough one or should I still be looking elsewhere? I'm an idiot with this sort of thing

Honestly, with everything that it comes with.. it's pretty damn good.. Not a huge fan of AMD.. but yeah, great price considering it includes monitor and peripherals etc.  Only thing it lacks is a wireless card really.

 

And it will certainly play FM with a fair few leagues actually..  decent find.

In regards to laptops that have come out with the 7th Gen processors and 1050/1050Ti graphics, how long do you think these graphics card would last until they were unable run the 3D engine in future FM's? Do you think any laptop with either of these GPU's in would last a minimum of 3 years?

Cheers :)

Does a wireless card add much? I'm a complete idiot when it comes to things like this.

It also doesn't seem to have SSD, does that make much difference to the game or is it pretty irreverent?

Wireless card would just mean you don't have to connect to your internet router by a wire..

 

An SSD is a lovely thing to have but it's not needed for fm really... the game makes little use of one.

I'm thinking of upgrading my PC's RAM from 4gb, to 8gb. Is it better to buy all new RAM or can I mix and match with my current RAM?

Cheers pal.

I've also been contemplating this one which looks top notch for £499 - https://www.tesco.com/direct/cube-essence-nano-quiet-home-pc-amd-quad-core-with-16gb-ram-2tb-sshd-builtin-wireless-micro-atx-tower-amd-a-series-seagate-2tb-sshd-with-8gb-ssd-win/389-9402.prd - what you think?

Been away from the FM fold since '14 and I've finally decided to get back into it now I have plenty of time to waste in my new job! Which also means time for a new laptop, been doing a bit of digging the last few days and have narrowed it down to a handful but just wanted a bit of expert advice. It'll mostly be used for FM, watching films, web browsing and a bit of word processing.

So here are the options:

1.https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/7240-9067-StormForce-7240-9067_2060056.html

 Not sure about the manufacturer here, don't know too much about them so it's a bit of a wild card. I do like the idea of a dedicated graphics card though.

2.https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/NX.GKEEK.009-Acer-Aspire-E5-575_2079455.html

 From what I've read this seems like a solid choice in terms of processor and the SSD is a big plus in my eyes.

3.http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/acer-aspire-es-15-es1-572-core-i5-7200u-8gb-1tb-dvd-rw-15.6-inch-windows-10-nx.gkrek.010/version.asp

 Again this processor seems like a solid choice but to be honest the aesthetics of this one really put me off

Any help would be greatly appreciated, i.e game speed with each option

Hey, really sorry to hear that, thanks for letting us know, what was their reasoning behind the delay?

Parts for the computer that were imported stuck with customs, they said I could cancel which I did but still won't give me my money back despite having everything in writing! It's in the hands of the credit card company now, takes 60 days to sort out via credit card people!

Unfortunate about the customs thing, but not giving you your money back is awful, no excuse, I'll certainly stay clear of them.

I was wondering if someone could help. I have been playing Football Manager for years but I have always used pretty basic laptops.

I popped into PC world yesterday for some advice and the guy working there said this will do. 

http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/hp-14-an060sa-14-laptop-silver-10156921-pdt.html

I wasn't convinced. Could anyone let me know if this is ok to run FM2017, please?

Thanks

Barely... I wouldn't bother, if your budget is around the £300 mark, i'd consider holding off and saving for around £400 to get something nominally suitable or go the refurb/second hand route.

£400 is fine.

Is there anything you can recommend?

I need a help...

What will be better to play Football Manager 2017: i5 3470 with ssd or i7 2600 with hdd ?

Intel HD graphics 2500 will be ok ? or should I buy computer with dedicated grahphics

@DBoniem

 

SSD's and HDD's have very little impact on the game... it will simply be how fast you load the game.  processing the actual game while playing isn't affected.

 

There is very little between the two cpu's in real life performance, haven't tested either with fm particularly, but the i5 edges it for me, simply down to it being a newer generation.

 

The hd 2500's aren't great really, but you'll play the 3d on low to medium probably.

Get the first one, on FM processor is king and it blows the others out of the water.  Do a quick google on what the letters that follow the processor mean i.e. hq, mq, U etc.  It may help you decide which is right for you.

At your price point I'd advise this

http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/refurbished-grade-a1-hp-pavilion-15-ak085na-core-i7-6700hq-8gb-2tb-windows-a1-k3d61ea/version.asp

it is an open box referb but the specs are outstanding. My current laptop was from these guys and was also an A1 refurb. I was very pleased with mine. In most cases these refurbs are just returns that haven't even been used

Is this one of the best laptops to purchase around that price? Considering buying one myself and that fits into my price range.

I would say so Scott, the processor in it is one they use for much more expensive laptops, there is no dedicated graphics though so no real gaming except FM which would have to be on slightly lower settings but like I said I got one from there myself and i've had it for a year and a half with no probs at all.  If you do require better graphics the Stormforce one a few comments above is a good bet.

edit - if you read my post below i've added a bit for your attention (I really need to learn how to tag/multi quote!)

From the two the HP is the better laptop in my opinion although there are pros and cons with both, The HP is a refurb but is more powerful, The stormforce is new and has better graphics but doesn't carry the same brand familiarity as the HP.  To be frank though both would be great for FM.

edit - looked into the Stormforce brand and they are made by Zoostorm who make a lot of build to order laptops, they get them from Clevo who are well renowned and have great bios/driver support, from what i've read its pretty easy to get hold of spare parts if need be, with that in mind if you or  scott-h22 could stretch to another £100 quid this StormForce Wildfire Core i7-6700HQ 8GB 1TB + 128GB SSD GeForce GT940 has the best of both worlds with the processor of the HP and the graphics of the other Stormforce plus as a nice Brucey bonus it also has an SSD for quick booting and game saving

Thank you, you've been really helpful with those two posts.  I am tempted to purchase the StormForce one but I don't know if I could justify paying €773.97 plus postage for a laptop which I most probably will only play FM on and use to browse etc.  You say the HP would be good but have to run FM at slightly lower settings, would that mean it won't be able to load numerous leagues or are you talking in terms of the 3D match engine? (At the moment I play without the stadium and weather loaded in basically all I see is the players, the pitch, a ball and goals) 

Generally what is the lifespan on refurbished second hand laptops?

Cheers, @scott-h22 

With the HP it would be the lower graphics as it doesn't have a dedicated/descreet graphics card.

Refurbs can really vary but the HP I recommended is A1 which will be barely used, if at all.

they describe it on their website as this

A1 Refurbished 
A1 are open boxed units which have been returned usually due to been unwanted. The units may have at very worst case have very faint minor /non-permanent blemishes. All units then undergo a full 25-point inspection by our experienced tech team ensuring they are in full working order. Once all relevant checks have been complete the units are then securely repacked ready to be resold. Please note although we can’t guarantee that these units are still in their original boxes with all their original accessories we can confirm that on average 85% of our stock is still in its original packaging.  

My own Laptop here that I bought from them around 2 years ago is still going great guns and came in its original box and looked brand new not even a blemish, the keyboard and trackpad are not to everyones taste so that may have been a factor in its return.  I was initially very cautious about parting with around £800 if memory serves but I did my research and the company have great reviews and customer service although I have not had to deal with them directly myself due to being very pleased with my purchase.  I'm currently running all European leagues with 134000 players and a really decent pace, I would expect the HP to run the same maybe even slightly better

My take on the HP is this

pros -

Genuine quad core i7 processor that knocks the socks off anything at that price which will mean running more leagues and having a larger database

cons -

you'll be looking at low/medium settings in terms of the 3D match engine

That said I don't think any of the Laptops we've discussed would be a bad choice at all

Thanks for all your help pal, I don't even think the low/medium settings on the 3D engine is much of a problem for me to be honest as long as it doesn't lag and I can have the stadium and weather effects showing I think that will be fine.  I'd imagine i'll probably purchase the HP laptop then. :)

That refurbished HP with Intel Core i7-6700HQ looks like a good price and I might buy one tonight. I've been trying to find a laptop with i7-6700 around £500 so that fits the bill. How many leagues do you reckon it can load with all graphics (facepack,kits,badges etc) ? I'm looking to load a lot of leagues and start unemployed. I play on 2d so don't really care about the graphics card.

It depends what you would call quick but as an example my in 4710mq runs all of Europe at a pace I find acceptable.  I tend to load everything to start with and then take leagues away as my save develops.

Ok thanks for the help , I'll get that ordered when I get home from work. I currently have an intel pentium 2020m and I think it loads quick enough with 12 leagues and large DB but it's on it's way out. 

 

Now they've sold out , that's frustrating

I'll do the benchmark when I can. :)

Hope you get it all sorted mate, I was speaking to somebody today about the Stormforce brand and they said they'd heard good things so I think you made a really good choice there.  

Be great if you can add to the benchmark thread as there's a lot more desktop PC results there than mobile ones and makes it a lot easier to give future recommendations with real world results

Got mine today also and it's fantastic. Had a bit of a problem at first in that I had a boot error when I loaded it up but it seems to be fine now. I've started my unemployed career too! I have 36 leagues loaded iirc and it runs so quickly. I will do a benchmark test tomorrow but I did one on my old laptop earlier and it had 10 and 20 minutes as the results.

Sorry for the late reply it cost me £817 it arrived on thursday runs everything great so far and super fast thanks to upgrading that kingston ssd to a super rapid 256GB SAMSUNG PM961 M.2, PCIe NVMe (up to 2800MB/R, 1100MB/W) which starts the laptop in like 6 seconds.

Hi All,

Currently looking for a laptop or desktop (laptop ideally as I am short on space in my flat) and just wondered what peoples thoughts were on the below:

https://www.johnlewis.com/dell-inspiron-15-5000-series-laptop-intel-core-i7-16gb-ram-256gb-ssd-amd-radeon-r7-15-6-/p3124483

Would you say its a good price for the spec and do you think it would run FM's for the next few years? Also do you think the graphics card could handle the 3D engine on the highest settings?

Hi,

My laptop has gone dead on me- gutted.

In desperate need of a new one.

I'm one that likes to load lots of leagues with a large database. Looked on this for advise and some great advise from knowledgeable people. Which one of these would be best for my needs??

Hi All,

Currently looking for a laptop or desktop (laptop ideally as I am short on space in my flat) and just wondered what peoples thoughts were on the below:

https://www.johnlewis.com/dell-inspiron-15-5000-series-laptop-intel-core-i7-16gb-ram-256gb-ssd-amd-radeon-r7-15-6-/p3124483

Would you say its a good price for the spec and do you think it would run FM's for the next few years? Also do you think the graphics card could handle the 3D engine on the highest settings?

Cheers :)

Andrew

Do you need it to be portable? (is long battery life a factor for you?)

Does it have to John Lewis?

What is your budget?

I would go for this http://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/stormforce-wildfire-core-i7-6700hq-8gb-1tb-128gb-ssd-geforce-gt940-dvd-rw-7270-9069/version.asp

I recommended it further up this page to @scott-h22 and he'll be able to tell you more about it than I can in terms of leagues it will run etc, but my guess is a shedload.

As i've mentioned before and you can read above, in FM processor is king and this one has the best you can get under a grand

Hey man,

Would you say this one of the best laptop I could get under 700? Like the post above I just want play a large number of leagues and a good speed and ideally something that will last a few years.

 

I would like to build my own PC but the spec on this laptop looks fine tbh.

I just got it this morning, i'll let you guys know as soon as I can what it's like in terms of loading leagues etc, it might take a while to get everything downloaded though as I still have very poor internet speeds - joys of living in Ireland. :lol:
