Doctor FunzzeR's diagnosis: This post is full of Fail.

On the off chance that this is not a troll, go for the Alienware, as you appear to be a perfect match for it.

Don't you find it is more a question of taste?

I am perfectly happy with my Nvidia purchases I have had in the past with all the regular problems pertaining to graphic cards burning up etc.

I would say go for the performance you are looking for and get it as cheaply ays possible. Forget about brands etc unless you wish to buy it to look cool and you don't care about the price.

I am personally looking towards a laptop around 500 at christmas that can run eve on lowered settings (textures max but everything else at min) and it seems to be about right for what I want. Atm it is a toss up between the hd 5470 or g210 or g310, regardless I know it can do what I want and what to expect and that is the main thing.




Yep forget about brands so when you get a ****ed up defective card you cant send it back to a sweat shop in china.Rolling Eyes

Or I could have it taken back to the shop where I bought it and have done with it...

All the same, just doesn't cost as much as big names right?

EDIT: bordering on pyramid quoting there, so I cut it a bit.

This is so ridiculous it's not even funny anymore.

Don't get such ridiculous resolutions on such tiny displays! You need a microscope to read plain text documents. It's like trying to read a full page of a book at once on your ipod nano (almost). For that size screen i think the best resolution would be something like 1440x900, or something similar, at most.

A few years it go it might have been taste, but these days pound for pound ATI's offerings are quite better than Nvidia for a lower price. And I say this as former Nvidia fanboy.

Same goes for Intel processors vs. AMD, unless you are aiming for the absolute high end (i7's) then AMD provides far more value in many instances.

Murphy's Law would state that your card would break after your store's return period is over. And if you bought from a fly by night company, you are probably SOL if their support is flaky.

Ok, point with murphy's law is conceded. Laughing I have experienced it in the past, but because the guys knew me at the shop I bought the part from they did me a deal, knocking the current price of the unit off the sale price of the new one. So I was lucky I suppose.

Secondly I wasn't aware that AMD and ATI were such good value for money atm. (Grunt for price).

So I will take heed, but I will still compare things as and when I can until I can afford the new stuff I want.

I always go for price-performance.
Slim wallets force such decisions.

Lol if he wants a laptop then let him!

Neway i just want to say i completly agree that you will be better going somewhere else than alien, post on some tech forums somewhere there are people who will help recommend.

If it was a desktop, yea buy the parts seperate and bring together, or some small local stores may have good deals (just be careful tho)

But alien ware is a no no, im not from US (or wherever you are from) so i dont know any stores for yourself.

m15x laptop here Op, great construction quality, great cooling, and its more powerful than my desktop.

I required a gaming laptop, and for me Alienware was the easiest solution. vOv Perhaps I paid a little bit more for the brand
but with the brand comes good quality and cooling solution etc.

To answer your question tho, yeah the m11x will play eve with no problems.

Personally i agree with some of the previous posters. Unless you really HAVE to get a laptop for your gaming, don't. Price/power really does not compare.

Having said that i just got myself an Asus G73JH-A1. Fantastic machine, plays pretty much anything i have tried wihtout breaking a sweat. No temperature problems either and i live in a tropical/humid country. Cost was about USD$1650. Battery life is fairly crappy but what would you expect, hehe.

Good luck
