    Hello guys. I found a laptop with a core i7 cpu and (4th generation)
    500gb hdd and many other nice specs.

    Do you think that gtx 850m is a good gpu for gaming. I want to rub gta 5 and skyrim SE 60tps or 50 at least.

    Depends if you want to run it on minimal or ultra settings ;)
    Here you can see a Benchmark for that GPU

    Probably it allows 4k on videos, but for sure, not ingame. It will probably have troubles running normal graphics at 1080p. But I guess for normal games, it will be okay.

    Most nvidia GTX is good for least 720P Gaming i guess, as long as you don't care for anything better (Which i think honestly is opinion) You should be good. :P

    Yeah, it should. I say it should because it is possible it'd not, but to be honest, it is stupid if it can't run 1080p@60fps videos.

    Even if it does support 4K out, it's likely 4K@30Hz.

    Also, don't expect it to be amazing.

    Just curious, i noticed that watching youtube videos, it uses the adobe flash player, is there any actual difference using the option for hardware render when you right click the video? :unsure:

    No. It doesn't have any difference in the actual hardware. You should switch to HTML5 player though.
    Yeah older computers who used YouTube with the flash player video player, use it by default. Stupid default configs. xD

    "Mobile gaming" GPUs are known for sub-par graphics, overheating, and terrible performance. With that said, I had pretty good results with an ASUS Republic of Gamers laptop which had NVIDIA graphics. Most games were playable at medium, even high settings (back then, WoW and FFXIV looked really nice). However, it cooked my testicles and I can not have children, so it's your call.

    It's true. The overheat is a problem. But you can buy a cooler for like 20-30€? That works incredible well.

    You should have a partition or something, like a empty pizza box underneath to buffer that heat blow dog! :ninja:

    Or considered a sperm bank earlier in life. :unsure:

    As for the overheating problem, the ROG series of laptops have known to produce good reviews. Though i did order a laptop that should be delivered today that supposed to have some IC diamond thermal compound that i guess would help?

    That one place
    the 800M series has a massive overheating problem, even cases of the GPU literally catching on fire
    my laptop is also in the 800 series and it has massive cooling problems
