Administrator answers:

It will run it, but you’ll have to play on lower settings and it’ll probably lag when there’s a lot of action going on. The ATI X1250 is an integrated graphics chip. You want to buy a dedicated graphics card. Your computer has a PCI Express x16 slot however. If you threw a ~$100 Nvidia 9800GT or ATI HD4850 in there you could max out MW2 and a lot of other games.

i am goin to use it alot to play games, but games like crysis i can play in medium, can anyone tell me which is better or recommend one


Administrator answers:


with the 9300m its a good gaming pc, none of the laptops above could run crysis at acceptable frame rates (20-30fps)

ocuk are a great company very reliable and they have next day delivery standerd, very good and reliable place, with tons of support.

And get windows 7 upgrade to itll be worth it ;)
and the 4gb ram is a must

Paul asks…

Which Laptop is better out of these two?

I asked a question before about gaming laptops and these two came up.
Before anyone talks about a tower is better for gaming, i cannot buy a tower for spacial and mobility reasons, and i cannot afford a tower and a laptop… and i want a laptop that can polay games anyway.

So yes out of these two which is the best for a budget of about £750?

Anyone know anything better than those for around £750?

Administrator answers:

Here’s why you should get a Mac:: There are NO CONS. The MacBook does both WinBloze and OSX, no other computer can make that statement. You have the best of the best. Apple Stores are popping up all over and you can make an appointment for a time and date, bring your computer there. They will troubleshoot it and fix it if it’s a software problem it’s FREE. What other computer company has stores and can make that statement? Get the 2.4 GHz with 4Gigs Ram and you got a speed machine like mine. The WinBloze people may not like a Mac computer but I’ll bet they all have iPods. Go Mac and Never Go Back.

Mary asks…

How can I get out of a lease I signed under possible false pretenses?

I have a situation where I may have signed a lease under false pretenses. I didnt see a lot of damage to the property until after I had already signed the lease. The previous tenants were still occupying the property while I was allowed to walk and inspect the condition of the property. Additionally, I was being rushed by the realtor to finish my walk through, because he had to “pick up his daughter.” I feel that he was rushing me so that I could not thoroughly inspect the duplex. At the same time, the previous tenants belongings were entirely covering the walls, floors, cabinets and shelves, hiding much of the damage to the property. After signing the lease, I walked into the duplex on move in day to find the damage was extensive, including holes in the walls, torn carpeting, gaps between doors and walls, water damage in almost every room, weather stripping had been chewed away by dogs, and the siding of the home seems to have some sort of water damage or rot, and is falling apart. Much of the tiling is cracked and rotted, the plumbing is not working consistently, etc… I signed the lease stating that I had viewed the condition of the property and accepted it as is, however I only did so because I could not view the property in its entirety, because the previous tenants were not going to move out until they had someone to occupy the property, so at no point was there a chance to view the property without the previous tenants belongings disguising the condition of the duplex before signing the lease. I would like to not do business with this property management company, as I feel I am being taken advantage of. Most of the damage is cosmetic, but it is extensive. I do not know if there is any mold or safety hazards caused by the damage, as I do not know the definition to “safety hazard” in a legal sense. I would like to get out of this lease and have my deposits and rent returned to me. Do you think this is in any way possible? The lease commencement date is Dec. 7th, 4 days ago today. The owner of the property management company is going to inspect the property with us later this week to “review my concerns.” I’m going to be bringing a lawyer if I can find one by then, but in the mean time I thought I would ask the internet. This company has been very difficult from the beginning and I believe that I have a leg to stand on, but that already signed lease keeps kicking me in the shins. Any advice or details you can give me, past experiences or loopholes you might know of would be extremely helpful.

Thanks in advance,

Take pictures and write a letter document all the damages ASAP. Send it to the property manager and landlord via certified mail or email so you have proof. And keep for your own records. I fell a sleep trying to find out info for you but I need to know what state you live in because every state has it’s own laws regarding this. If you google tenant rights, the .gov site should pop up in there somewhere. Make sure it is, because if it’s not, it might not be current. This does not sound right at all, No one should do walk thru’s with the tenant living there I just don’t agree with it, even though I read that some people’s leases have included the last 45 days of tenancy can be shown to prospective tenants!

It’s Ironic because I was shown an apt yesterday and I didn’t know the tenant was living there because the pictures that were posted for it had no furnishings in them. To my surprise there was so much stuff in there I couldn’t look at the apt the way I would’ve if it wasn’t occupied, as I felt it was rude to open things, or really stare at much of the apt (all his stuff) for too long. I didn’t feel comfortable talking to the realtor because the tenant was there, it was just akward.

A thought just popped up. The lease say’s as-is, and you looked at it furnished. Does it also state that the apt. Comes unfurnished? Thats it you could drop the lease because now it’s not furnished, or the fact that you did not see it as unfurnished and thats what they are trying to sell you.

Also water damage is a sign that the plumbing or roof is leaking, and you did say the plumbing is inconsistant [clarification pls?] You could get them for health code violation. In my state you have to notify the landlord of the issue by certified mail and if he doesn’t fix it in time, you go to the court, and pay you rent there and also if the apt. Is in unlivable condition he has to pay for you to live somewhere else while he fixes it. Long story short I still need to know where you live though, as this may not apply to you, unless your from Connecticut.

I feel for you, no one should be lied to, I’ll try to help out as much as I can. It would be nice too if you could somehow get the lease up for me to read as well as what state. Good luck!! I’m rootin for you!!!

PS: @top contributer that last remark was rude and uncalled for, its already done and he’s asking what he can do now. I’m sure he won’t do it again but you can’t blame someone who’s never gone through this before. So thank you CAPTAIN OBVIOUS
