  3. Ok cheers guys. I just wanted to get an idea before i splash out on the game and feel i've wasted my cash.
  4. Hi just a quick query. Thanks to my insurance company i'm soon to take delivery of a Dell Precision M6800 laptop with intel i7 4800mq cpu, 8gb ram and an AMD Firepro M6100 2gb graphics card. Full spec here:- http://www.dell.com/uk/business/p/precision-m6800-workstation/pd?refid=precision-m6800-workstation&baynote_bnrank=0&baynote_irrank=0&~ck=baynoteSearch&isredir=true I've researched the components but can't seem to find a benchmark for the whole laptop. The cpu scores really well on cpu benchmark coming in at 8495 and the graphics card comes in at 2585 using passmark software. A closer look at the specs for the firepro show it to be slightly better than the Radeon hd 7770 graphics card. My question is simple. Will this laptop run Battlefield 3 and possibly 4. Not overly bothered about ultra settings. Medium in hd(hdmi to tv) will do. Cheers Guys N
  5. Hey love your little pic! I saw those r9's but it said that it was pcie 3.0. It's been a while since i was into building computers and i wasn't sure if it would be compatible.
  6. I checked on cpuz and it shows them both as quad core. Windows xp 64 also shows 8 cpus/cores? Sorry further to that, when you say last-gen GPU what sort of thing are you talking about???

  8. Just checked on the Nvidia site and the Quadro 4600 which it is running is x16 so all good.
  9. Just looked at the manual again to see about PCI express 16 and it doesn't mention it. These are the PCI slots that it lists. Are any of these PCI express x16???:- A. PCI-X* 64-bit, 100-MHz slot 1 P. Processor 1 socket EE. Enclosure management SAS SES (available only with product code S5000XVNSAS or S5000XVNSASR) B. PCI-X 64-bit, 100-/133-MHz slot 2 Q. Processor 2 socket FF. Hot-swap backplane A header C. PCI Express* x4 or x8 slot 3 R. Processor 2 fan header GG. SATA 0 D. PCI Express x4 slot 4 S. Processor 1 fan header HH. SATA 1 E. CMOS battery T. System fan 4 header II. SATA 2 or SAS 0 (SAS 0 is available only with product code S5000XVNSAS or S5000XVNSASR) F. PCI Express x8 slot 6 U. System fan 3 header JJ. SATA 3 or SAS 1 (SAS 1 is available only with product code S5000XVNSAS or S5000XVNSASR) G. CD-ROM In connector V. IPMB connector KK. SATA 4 or SAS 2 (SAS 2 is available only with product code S5000XVNSAS or S5000XVNSASR) H. P12V4 connector W. System fan 2 header LL. SATA 5 or SAS 3 (SAS 3 is available only with product code S5000XVNSAS or S5000XVNSASR) I. Back panel I/O ports (see Figure 4 on page 11) X. System fan 1 header MM. USB port J. Diagnostic and Identify LEDs (see Figure 4 on page 11) Y. Processor power connector NN. Front control panel header
  10. Just looked at the manual for the mainboard and it mentions DDR2 Ram 667mhz which i am familiar with but it then goes on about FBDIMM which is beleive is fully bufferred memory. This looks a bit expensive at the few sites i've looked at. If i wanted to increase the ram could i strip the existing ram out and then replace it with normal DDR2??? Obvoiusly i'm trying to keep the cost down. I'm not a massive gamer but having played BF4 on the PC i build for my lad this christmas i really enjoyed it. I was crap but still enjoyed it. Thanks again
  11. Hi guys, I have recently been given a dual e5430 xeon computer with 8gb of ram and an fx 4600 graphics card and 670W PSU. The main board is an intel s5000xvn if that means anything to you. I was looking at doubling the RAM and fitting an up to date gaming card and then running windows 7 64 bit. I'm looking to play BF4. It doesn't have to be at ultra settings just as long as it looks ok. Do you think i'm wasting my money. Looking to spend about
