:welcome:

 

Here is the specs for these games:

 

ARMA III

CPU:     Intel Dual-Core 2.4 GHz or AMD Dual-Core Athlon 2.5 GHz
CPU Speed:     Info
RAM:     2 GB
OS:     Windows Vista SP2 or Windows 7 SP1
Video Card:     NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT or AMD Radeon HD 3830 or Intel HD Graphics 4000 with 512 MB VRAM
Sound Card:     Yes
Free Disk Space:     10 GB

Battlefield 4 system requirements

 

The minimum PC system requirements for Battlefield 4 are expected to be:
    Dual core CPU (Intel Core i5 or AMD “Bulldozer”).
    At least 4 GB main system memory
    Graphics card with at least 512 MB of VRAM and support for DirectX 10
    30+ GB of harddrive space
    Windows Vista

Recommended system requirements

The recommended PC system requirements for optimal visual quality and frame rates:

    Quad core CPU (Intel Core i5 or i7) at 3 Ghz
    4 GB memory (8 GB for 64-bit operating systems)
    A modern DX11 graphics card with 2+ GB of video memory, GeForce 600 series or Radeon 7000 series
    Windows 7 64-bit operating system (Windows 8 is supported as well)
    30+ GB of free harddrive space

 

So it looks possible, but with Battlefield 4 and most newer games with this card  http://www.geforce.c.../specifications

might not be able to set games at there highest settings. Most games rely on amount of system RAM,Graphics card specs.

Most games can look this up to see recommended requirements.

 

For this system is is good, i have ASUS and like them, but if you are a big gamer you will need better graphics card and more RAM.

Most Big Gamers will buy desktop PC's. But if that is not you this system seems good, can always upgrade the RAM and Graphics card later on.

 

As far as frames per second i am not sure,but when you have a system you can benchmark it with this program https://unigine.com/products/valley/

Or check NVIDIA i previously listed too. Some games can take up quite a bit of HDD space as you will see.

Welcome,from what i read, yes you should be able to.

 

Intel i7 processor is good, as said in previous post for an avid gamer you'll need a higher end graphics card and enough RAM to be able to run some of the newer games at higher settings.

 

Is this the Laptop computer http://translate.goo...tbs=lr:lang_1en

yep, that's the one. Still deciding whether to get it or not. I'm getting a discount on it so it would cost around 498 euros.

o.k. i was concerned about rating of 1.8ghz processor speed, but also said intel i7 up to 3.0ghz.

 

So was not sure here if games would work well then.

 

If this 3.0ghz rating was just for the Intel CPU rating and not the system, i am not positive, someone else may know more.

 

Not familiar with euros, here in the states.

https://www.youtube....h?v=t3HfUKtQdas this guy has similar specs and seems to be able to run arma just fine, since the laptop I want to get has a better processor, would that mean it would run better for me?

That is true and it is an Intel i7 capable of up to 3.0GHZ speed processor.

 

With Turbo boost to get that speed.

 

What concerned me was actually speeds are at 1.8GHZ, but should boost up to 3.0GHZ when needed.

 

Again as mention previously if you are not a big gamer looking to buy and play alot of newer games ,i feel you are fine.

Will not get higher then this resolution with this laptop screen and probably the graphics card  1366 x 768 pixels

 

Seems like a good laptop, i have a ASUS Desktop and happy with it so far, but i upgraded stuff on it.

Hi sevenfaced,

 

Well i would say # 2 on your list boosts up to 3.4GHZ, HD 1920 X 1080 Resolution and it has 16GB RAM, enough for most games.

 

Only drawback was 750GB drive not so much space if you do buy alot of games, plus how much software you put on it.

 

Hate to repeat myself, but with gaming it all matters how much you plan on doing, if it is just a few games or if you are a big gamer i feel you are best with a desktop, more upgrade options and advantages for it.

Put in better graphic card, hard drive space, Cooling systems and RAM.

alright ive come to my final conclusion, hahah (thanks for all your help by the way!) its between #2 and this one (which costs quite a lot more, but I need to know if it is worth it in terms of how well it can run games compared to #2) :

(also, the hard drive space would not be a problem to me because on steam you can uninstall games and install them whenever so its fine :) )

 

CPU Intel Core i7-4700HQ (2.40 GHz / Turbo 3.40Ghz)

Ram 16GB DDr3

HD 1TB

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 850M

Windows 8.1

Your quite welcome, Well #2 has more RAM, But a smaller HD.

One you list now from before has a slightly better model processor, hope you decide and make the best choice.
