Many of us on this forum believe laptop and gaming do not mix because laptops have a really hard time keeping cool when gaming.

IMO, that 9800GTX should be fine to game with, but wat are the rest of the specs. Those other specs can easily bog down the performance for gaming.

Gaming is no longer about how powerful a graphic card is, the whole package has to be balanced. You computer is as fast as the slowest part in it.

With that amount ram and that video card I would have though they would have put a much faster processor in it. That may bottleneck the GPU and not let you realize the full performance of the video card.

I wouldn't neccessarily say that he'd be bottlneced by the CPU however I would totally agree that you're not really going to be getting a great gaming experience on a laptop with that kind of hardware.

Although, what games are wanting to play?

Why are you considering a laptop in the first place? For the same kind of money you could probably build yourself a nice desktop gaming rig.

The spec's seem more like a multi-media laptop than a gaming laptop.You will be bottle necked with the cpu and the gpu will not be able to keep up with the native screen resolution on many of the game's released in the last two year's.

The only way to keep up with the 1920x1200 screen resolution would be if it's sli and if that's the case you would be severely cpu bottle necked.

As other's have noted laptop's need to be balanced out for throughput even more so than desktop's.

If you give us list of what you want to do we could help you make a very informed decision based on our own experience's instead of manufacturer

Yes it should work fine depending on which game you play on:) But on games like crysis 2, you will experience some slow down on higher settings.
