That's a mobile GPU so it's not going to deliver compared to the Nvidia 860 desktop version. Also gamers are giving the nod to the 970 desktop card.
You ask for a new part but this shows you may not know that about all laptops don't have video cards. That is the card is gone and the chips are put onto the motherboard for cost, space and other reasons.
For gaming at high you should be looking at much higher GPUs, like the 980m
I just bought a new laptop, intended for graphic design, but i would also like to run good games on it.
So the specs are
Intel Core i7 4720HQ 2.6 CPU @ 2.6GHZ
16 GB RAM
Nvidia GTX 860M
Is that a setup that could run games on high settings at fluid framerates?
If not, what could i change?
The laptop is an Acer Aspire V17 Nitro
Fallout 4 struggled on high settings, was slightly choppy on medium as well, was automatically set to low upon startup.
Arkham City ran okayish on decent graphics, but some lag spikes occurred.
Would be appreciated if suggested to buy a new part, where I might find this part for cheapish.
