Alienware processor probs
I am thinking about getting an alienware but i have a question about the processors.
The Laptop I am looking at has the 1.6ghz Centrino Duo processor. Now say I have a game that requires a MINIMUM of 2.0ghz to run.
(1)Is the core duo going to be able to run it pretty well? (less clock speed = less heat = more speed?),
the games i have is MotoGP 3, Thief 3, DOOM 3, DAoC(all add-ons), City of Heroes, Mu Online, Oblivion,etc
(2)Will it run these at least medium graphic settings with ease?
I've heard that these games have no support of the dual core, and that if I ran one, it would run extremely slow. Also I have been told the Core Duo's have a lot of problems and glitches still. Should I buy a laptop with this processor?
The laptop is the:
Alienware Area-51 m5550:
Intel core duo T2300 1.66ghz, 667mhz FSB
Serial ATA 1.5Gb/s 5,400 RPM w/ NCQ & 8MB Cache
128MB ATI Mobility Radeon X1400
i might be able to fork out the extrao 200 for the 1.83ghz but for what i want, will it be worth it?
I have asked everywhere, surely someone has a core duo running one of these games...
