New Laptop/PC- Help Needed

Recommended Posts

I believe so yes. It accesses things quicker than a mechanical drive, so you should see quicker start/load/save/quit times but not much else.

Anyone try running with a Surface Pro 4 i5 8GB RAM? Debating whether I should use that or go 16GB or RAM but the price skyrockets too on those tablets.  As I don't really use my laptop these days I was looking at a tablet specifically for FM/EHM

SSD. It wouldn't process FM faster though. 

In fact, I'd avoid having solely an SSD if possible - as it is a microchip it wears out the more it is used. SSD for O/S only is how I understand it.

 

I don't think that's really the case any more

Yeah, I wouldn't worry too much about durability on ssd's now.. most of the main manufacturers have decent ratings in terms of durability now.

I can get the dell for 630? Is it worth the extra 120 for the msi @Welshace

Yes, you'll be able to run what you are asking on that...

Forget the stars... they are just an indicator and not a particularly accurate one at times.

have a look at which one has the best processor.  I'd go for that.

Compare them here https://www.cpubenchmark.net

I'm guessing the ones at the top of the lists are the best? No idea what any of It means. When It comes to processors I have no clue what that mean. Software am good with hardware like graphics cards and processors no clue

Evening all,

I'm looking for a little advice on upgrading my current rig, which is approximately 3.5-4 years old. I am terrible for just buying an entire new system every so often, but I'd prefer to start upgrading piecemeal.

Current specs are:

I7-3770 cpu @ 3.4ghz

8.00GB RAM

NVidia GeForce GT640

64-bit operating system

The system runs fine, could do with a clean-up and it can occasionally lag when loading spreadsheets, and file manager has a slight tendency to crash. Where would you be starting with the upgrades here? More RAM? New graphics card? Take the plunge and bundle deal a new processor? It doesn't need to be super state-of-the-art from a gaming perspective,  running only FM, Total War and occasionally Civi. But I would just like to upgrade general performance.

PC sees heavy use and I have rudimentary knowledge of the tech side of things, but realistically the choice of upgrades is overwhelming and I wouldn't mind a bit of guidance from those who are far more familiar with these sort of things. Or pointed towards any particularly impressive deals - I tend to only use Overclockers for components.

Btw...for anyone looking to spend around £400....  

This isn't bad :  http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/lenovo-ideapad-510-15-6-laptop-black-10146352-pdt.html

When you say not bad, to what level? how smoothly could it run FM mate and at what point would it starts struggling?

I'm looking to buy a small laptop for FM17, I have found this laptop but wondered if it would be suitable:

http://www.currys.co.uk/gbuk/computing/laptops/laptops/lenovo-yoga-510-14-2-in-1-black-10146159-pdt.html

I won't be using the 3D function and only looking to use the small - medium database.

Can you confirm if this would be ok?

It will certainly run the game pretty well. No mention of graphics card though so may not do so well on the 3D front.

What hard drive do you have?  If you're running a mechanical hard drive I would say upgrading to an SSD, at least for the operating system, is the first choice.  I would personally do a clean install of Windows onto a new SSD and have your current HDD as the second hard drive (although you will need to reinstall Steam etc).

Other than that, maybe a new graphics card as that one is a little old.  I don't think you necessarily need more RAM than 8GB.  That CPU is still pretty good.

I'd like to hear from SP4 users too, I would really like one and plan to use steam streaming for some games but would be grateful if those who have used one for FM could share their experiences (also looking at i5 8gb model, might also consider the i7)

Hi @Harry1412,  neither are really suited for gaming, but the dell is more capable than the HP..

 

That said, running fm on either will be a struggle in any meaningful way.. but without knowing what you mean exactly by 'run fm' .. we can't answer fully.

Do u know any laptops that FM17 will work on that don't cost that much ??

I'm afraid that's about as vague as you could possibly be....

 

What's your budget? what do you mean by work? how many leagues? what else do you need the laptop for? etc

I have a budget of about £300.

I usually use a medium database with about 20 leagues.

I will only use my laptop for FM17 and Word Documents and the Internet.

I also want a laptop with Microsoft 10.

I'm looking for a deal on Black Friday.

I just want FM17 to work properly so good graphics, run fairly quick, etc.

Any Suggestions ??

For £300, you are going to struggle to find something that will run decent graphics and 20 leagues tbh.. maybe on Black Friday when the better deals come around though.. 

You might get lucky.

Or I'd consider saving up a bit more maybe?

For 20 leagues and decent graphics I would generally be looking at £400 minimum personally.

It's not cut and dry as saying 'this will run fm and this won't'...

 

It all depends on how you like to play and what you consider fast and slow.

That has the same processor as the dell you asked about originally...

 

So, yes, it would run the game... but no, I don't think it will do so too well.

 

But again, that's personal preference on how I play.

Ahh yeah..

 

Well it has the same spec apart from the ssd.. so it's a personal choice really...

 

I prefer the build quality from dell over hp and the after care too, but whether that's worth the extra £130...  I don't know... probably not.

Yep...it's still integrated chip so don't expect it to run everything on high  but it ran medium graphics on fm beta for me with little problem
