Hi. I have not posted in a long time but i figured i would start posting again.
I want to tell you about a fantastic computer reveiws site called PC Wiz Kids Tech Talk
This guy really knows his stuff and the site is well organized. There are many reviews for hardware and software. As well as tips and tricks for Windows XP - Windows 7 as well as Ubuntu Linux. I really suggest having a browse of this masterminds site before purchasing new hardware for your gaming rig. He reviews everything from power supplies to graphics cards and also has links to the prices as available on newegg.
Also I have upgraded to a new laptop. I now am the proud owner of a Gateway NV 5302u Laptop PC.
I got it on sale at Best Buy in January. It has the Following tech specs.
AMD Athlon II X2 2.0GHZ Dual Core Processor
4.00GB DDR2 RAM
256MB ATI Radeon 4200HD Graphics Processor
Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit OS
Has a general score of 3.7 on the Windows Experience Index
Has a score of 5.2 for the graphics
I was able to play and beat Bioshock 2 on medium graphics.
This is a great laptop at a great value.
Unfortunately this model is no longer available and the closest I could find was the NV5378u Click the link for more information on this wonderful notebook. The 5378u has a 1gb 4200HD so you can pull games at higher graphics levels and it is well priced.
Thank you for taking the time to read this post and don't be afraid to make a suggestion.
