OT of GG | What are you playing right now?

Hey @@ZerueLX11.

 

I'm planning on buying a new laptop at some point that is/has:

 

1. Powerful (can run Chrome, Twitch, etc without lagging)

2. Has good battery life

3. Isn't filled with shitware that's pre-installed

 

After trying to do an ESL event with an Intel i3 and awful battery life, I figured its time to bump up my laptop game. I've already got a beefy PC but I can't exactly carry that with me across the country.

 

I'm not looking to drop more than 500-700 because it won't be used that much. Hopefully you can help me figure out a nice balance between price and power.

 

Cheers.

Well laptops are tricky. here are two laptops that can do the job just fine. Both have the same CPU.

 

720p screen and only uses the Intel iGPU, it does save power that way.

1080p screen and has a Nvidia 940m, to save power I recommend turning the 940m off.

Which would you recommend if its rarely going to get use out of it apart from browsing Beyond, reddit, etc and posting clips to Twitter from events?

I think the 1080p screen will give you more real estate to work with, but you'll survive with the 720p screen just fine.

I'm trying to get some awesome landscape posters of Halo CE, Halo 2, and Halo 3 for my new apartment. So far I'm really struggling finding good posters to purchase, so I thought I'd just find high resolution images and print them myself and THEN go get them framed. I'm really struggling to find a good CE picture to use and using a CE anniversary image would be my absolute last resort. I want all 3 posters to be 24in high, 36in long. Could somebody maybe point me in the right direction?

 

Here is the CE image I'd like.

Here is the Halo 2 image that should be fine already.

This Halo 3 image should also be high enough resolution already.

Any help in finding better images to use or even posters on amazon or somewhere else that are already done would be great! Thanks for the help!

Both will perform within 2-3 fps of each other and are very reputable. 

 

 

At this point I would choose either by...

 

  • Which one looks best
  • Which costs less
  • Or if the brand matches my motherboard

Pictures? In what way is it too big?

I'll grab a pic when I open my case again tomorrow but it's too big in length by 2cm.

 

Me and my Dad are gonna see if we can do anything about the big of plastic that's in the way. My last resort was just cutting a bit of it out.

I'm probably not gonna open my case today but yeah, the card I got in 30cm but I can only fit a 27-28cm one in there.

 

I'm just returning it to Amazon and ordering another 1070 that's smaller.

I would say just mod your case if you can, so you dont have to wait.

That was gonna be the plan if I couldn't find a 1070 FE anywhere but NVIDIA had them in-stock on their site at a much cheaper price than Amazon.

 

Will just wait :(
