    Default New laptop will it be good enough.....

    Hi all,

    Just purchased a new laptop with the main aim of using it for work multimedia - office stuff. Yet was happy to see that it has a blu ray drive and the graphics card below...

    Graphics Controller: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 - 512 MB

    Could someone let me know if this would be capable of playing most PC games... I interested in getting MS flight sim X.

    The laptop is http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/-/654/861...archtype=genre which I thought for the spec was a good price... has anyone else got one or similar....

    I had a similar laptop and I ran Call of duty 4, counter-strike source not a problem. I dont think it will handle Flight simulator on full settings but it should run fairly smooth. But good choice with the Acer's I've had four of them all been brilliant!

    it'll handle COD4 ok, but Flight Sim X will be a no-go on anything but lowest settings. Flight Sim 9 will run ok, but you need a serious desktop machine to get FSX running at full power...

    Yeah that'll do mate, that's FS9. You could probably spend hours searchign around and get it cheaper, or second hand off ebay or something, but that's the one you want mate...
