An 8600GT will not be able to run Crysis on high settings. Probably low settings actually.

DirectX 10 is overrated. The 8600 is DirectX 10, but it's too slow for Crysis. You'll need an 8800. Or, you could just get a really fast DirectX 9 card that will work just fine.

DX10 sucks, all it does is lower your frame rates.

if you want a very good gaming lappy then get one with a 8800M video chipset

OK, so now I'm torn between these two

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834220215
^looks great, pretty good graphics

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834224076
^looks not as great, better graphics, +$250

Are the graphics worth 250? I don't care about the hard drives, ram I will eventually replace both.


ps: thx for the replies.
