Cheaper Laptops Can Play Crysis These Days

Asus M51Sn-X2 with a 9500m GS

It was only last year you needed to shell out well over 2 grand to buy a laptop with specs that can play Crysis on mid-high settings with a decent framerate. Rejoice, folks. Now you can play that resource hogging PC game with laptops that are more affordable, like the Asus M51Sn-X2 NoteBook. It cost about $1,199 which is a very respectable price for a new gaming laptop. It comes with a Nvidia 9500M GS, Nvidia’s newest mobile gaming video card.

Here are some crucial stats for the Asus M51Sn-X2

  • Intel Core 2 Duo T8300 2.4G
  • 4 GIGs of DDR Ram
  • 250 GIG HD
  • 15.4 WXGA screen
  • Nvidia 9500M GS with 512 MB of memory.

The Best Deal For a GeForce 9800 GTX at the moment

 BFG GeForce 9800 GTX

Okay, so we all know the GeForce 9800 GTX is the hottest video card right now. But which third-party brand has the best deal going? It has got to be the BFG GeForce 9800 GTX at NewEgg.com. They are offering a mail-in rebate of $30 so it will cost $259.99 after the rebate. You can’t beat that price, not even on Ebay. Go on Ebay and take a look…you can’t find any 9800 GTX models there for $260 or under! Add to the fact that BFG is one of the best in the business and with their 10 year warranty on all the video cards they manufacture, it is indeed pretty sweet. The rebate deal ends after May, so if you want to pick up a 9800 gtx anytime soon, this should be the time. Don’t expect a price drop across the board for the 9800 GTXs until maybe around the end of summer.

The 9800 GTX getting good reviews on NewEgg.

EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX

The Nvidia Geforce 9800 GTX so far has been a hit with the consumers. Reviews are coming in from buyers on NewEgg that the video card performs exceptionally well. And this is especially the case for EVGA’s 9800 GTX which already has over 115 reviews and the majority of the reviews rate the graphics card as excellent or good. The reviews are saying that the card is able to handle Crysis on its highest settings, which is good to hear, because we thought it would take a couple of years for a video card to do that.
