If you worry about this, or didn't know, gaming on laptops is still troublesome. I find that even current machines are pushing the envelope so get it on a cooling pad and enjoy for a few years. Life spans are reduced over say the desktop models but in spite of all warnings folk want the laptop form factor.
Look at the paltry warranty to see this confirmed.
a) While I think 2GB is ample, a few rare games may like more. Only you know if the game you want to play takes advantage of this.
My first ever thread
Basically I am interested in buying one of the following laptops with GTX970M.
1- MSI GT60 Dominator 1065 with GTX970 3GB
2- Sager NP8262 (Clevo P150SM-A) with GTX970 6GB
All other specs are the same with Core i7, 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD.
I am not concerned with proportions,portability or looks. I just want pure gaming performance. So I think it comes down to the following issues:
a) Video Memory: 3GB vs 6GB GTX 970
b) Price: Sager is $100 cheaper even with the 6GB GTX970
c) Thermal: Most importantly, which one may have better heating management/any thermal issues that may hinder gaming.
Please advise and provide analysis regarding the above mentioned a,b, & c points adding any other info or recommendations that you might have regarding this comparison. Specially the 'c' part regarding the heat management of these laptops.
I am basically relying on the experience of the community regarding these brands (MSI/Sager) as I have no prior experience with these brands.
