Is there a demo for download on pc for this game? I would like to try a little bit before purchasing this. Otherwise I will likely wait until the price drops dramatically so that if I don't like it I won't be out that much money.

Actually I do travel more than just school and I actually prefer pc gaming over console gaming. I've done the research on this and really gaming laptops aren't that bad performance wise. Don't get me wrong I would love to get a gaming desktop pc but I'm not going to carry a desktop into the library and around town with me lol. I'm not to concerned bout battery issues as I won't be doing any long gaming sensions anyways, school has a lot of my time taken up. I just want something with the option to game while traveling and this is the best option without carrying a tone of hardware.

Honestly I started off wanting an alienware but they are pretty pricey. So I found this site xoticpc.com that has different types of laptops with many different choices. I nevery realized there were so many types of gaming laptops. I think I'm going to go with a Sager because those seem to be the better buy for the price, plus it's more powerful. http://www.xoticpc.com/sager-np9150-clevo-p150em-special-edition-p-5175.html

Thank you, I think since I do have the money for it I'm going to go with the 680m then. The margin of power might not be that great but I will probably be using this for awhile before I can build my own desktop so I want to make sure it will be ready for anything that might come and need the little bit of extra power.

Sorry it has been a long time since I've been on these forums so I got to get back in the swing of things lol. I've never used AMD gpu's, are there any issues that I should know prior to getting one? I would prefer to go with the 7970m because the price is cheaper, but I want to run my games on ultra more if possible and am willing to dish the extra money to do so if needed.

So I'm going to start off by saying that yes these are laptop gpu's that I'm asking about. I am getting a new laptop for school so it needs to be mobile and I would like to game on it in my downtime.

I am wondering which is better, 2gb AMD 7970m or 2gb nVidia 680m.

I plan to build a desktop PC for gaming eventually but with school and the need for portability, that just isn't going to work for my right now.

I play skyrim the most but I do like ghost recon also and I would like to run these games on ultra settings if possible on a laptop. I know the line between desktop and laptop for gaming is kind of vast due to the options desktops offer LOL.

They are laptops because I need something more mobile since I will also be using this for school, I'm looking at a couple between an MSI and Alienware which I'm very unsure of due to the price compared to MSI. Most of the MSI laptops I've looked at do allow for cpu and gpu upgrades and I have upgraded a couple laptops (more experience with desktops). also does having dual cards really make a difference cause I found some with and nvidia 675m and same cpu and ram as posted and I'm wondering if that's just as good, better, or worse. I would honestly much rather do a desktop for gaming but I can't afford a desktop and laptop and I need mobility. Any other suggestions for gaming laptops would be welcome also please, Thank you.

So I'm good with computers and hardware in general and I can make upgrades as needed. For this reason I believe it would be cheaper in the long wrong to switch to pc gaming instead of continuing with my console gaming, but I have some questions.

Right now these are the components I'm looking to to get for pc gaming and I want to know if this would be sufficient enough to run most games (mostly skyrim) in ultra or high settings.

i7 core 3.4GHz with turbo boost

8Gb RAM 1600MHz

Dual 2GB GDDR5 AMD Radeon HD 7970m

I know the graphics cards is more than enough and CPU should be good but I wasn't sure if I sure go with 8GB RAM or 12GB RAM, will that amount even show enough of a difference?
