everything looks GREAT except for the gpu, it SHOULD (dont hold me to that) play hl2 and doom3 at reasonable settings..
if your going to spend 2,000 why not look into a desktop, you could get 5 times that.... but if its a laptop u want then keep looking around...

if games arent too important to u then get it, definently.. but if the compputer is for more than about 25% gaming, then i wouldnt.. have a look at the range of ASUS

Well if ur with me on this, the x700 is compared to the 6600GT but pretty much gets stomped on, so the x600 wouldnt be the best, but it should play most games.. but when new engines come out it wont be much... and it is a costly thing to replace gpu'z in laptops

scratch everythingg ive said about the graphics card and have an open mind.... i checked out some reviews for the x600 and basically, more or less, its the pci-e version of the 9600 series... soo ur basically gettin a 9600, non pro or xt. It will be ok, but once again in the near future with games such as STALKER, ur not gona be able to play it too well...

so, YES ur card will run doom 3 and hl2, but at medium settings

so the x600 is the asus? i would get a nice desktop, but i've already got a decent 4 year old one that is good for typing and everything, so i figured why not spend money on a nice laptop?
