    Also the portability only comes in for LAN parties, and ive tried to game on a train or coach, ye it doesnt work, that element is bull crap if anyone claims it can be done well in such environment.
    and as a result, just produces more cons for laptop gaming
    Meh laptops generally are not hard to repair, personally I own a gaming laptop and my gaming desktop. If you take care of your equipment it should be fine but if something goes wrong, it's not hard to fix. I like my laptop as I use it for work with VM's etc. and for troubleshooting/data recovery plus it's good for when I want to go to a friends place

    Yeah agreed for work it's very nice, also post results on that SSD, it looks nice and I'm kind of itching to buy one for this PC maybe a 512GB model and throw my m4 in my laptop.

    Just ordered a new pc.
    Setup:

    AMD FX-6300 6-core 3.5GHz 14M AM3+ 95W
    GIGA-BYTE AMD 760G/SB710 AM3+ mATX
    4GB 1600MHz DDR3 CL9 Kingston
    4GB 1600MHz DDR3 CL9 Kingston
    1TB 3.5" SATA3 7200rpm 64MB WD Caviar Blue
    Kingston SSDNow V300 120GB SATA 6Gb/s 2.5"
    GeForce GTX660 2GB GDDR5 GIGA-BYTE
    DVD-RW 22X SATA BLACK
    Cooler Master Elite K350 Midi-tower
    600W (Silent 120mm FAN/Active PFC/85+)

    Cost of this setup in USD is around 992.

    Any feedback on my budget setup? ^^ For most part i play only wow, so more or less aim concerned about only wow performance. I do own some other games that i like to play from time to time (like skyrim, civ5, borderlands2), but performance in those titles would concern me to much.

    This is another reason why it's not really great asking after you already purchased, there is a high risk that any answer will just disappoint you or you end up having to defend your choices. I would also say this:

    Pfff AMD.. Pffff price/performance AMD wins.. I hate price/performance ratio's, if you would pay 50eur more over a setup fx8350 you'd had a major fps boost in raids like 50% orsomething so yes AMD is better in price/performance (ironically).

    just used the samsung software, using rapid mode, has the results for both the 250 GD ssd and my HDD for the lulz



    take the ssd results with a grain of salt, I dont have any software at the mo that can benchmark the SSD, unless someone can suggest an easy to get one

    - - - Updated - - -



    see if people can see this better

    for a better image of the HDD itself results

    Some nice setups as of late in this threads. As for me, no changes 'yet' but a planned upgrade is either a 9950 or 9970 as it's released and a 1440p monitor not long after that, will keep you guys updated.

    Could you please test the EVO with "Anvil's Storage Utilities" with both 1GB and 16/32GB? Would be very interested in the results. Maybe post them in the EVO thread though since that doesn't really belong here.

    will do, give a bit though, only posted in here as was asked

    Since my last post Here, I took another stab at getting a second 1440x900 monitor, different seller on Ebay this time and a little under €60 again, this is the result.





    I am kind of shocked at just how much difference going from 4080x768 to 4320x900 made, I was expecting some improvement, but just subjectively looking at it, it's a lot better than I was expecting (not sure how well it will show up in the images).

    As an added bonus the stand it came with can do this, which I'm sure I'll find a use for.........eventually.


    I also took a shot at making a UI in WoW suitable for use with 3 monitors, this was my attempt.


    It was fairly sweet playing like that for a while, I probably use it more if I could find some way to save entire UI presets to swap between this and my normal UI quickly (already have swapping between 3 separate monitors and eyefinity hotkeyed to control + alt + F9/F10).

    To save UI presets I suggest you to look into Reflux as long as your addons have profile support. How's the 6850 performing on triple monitors?
