My laptop has an Intel HD Graphics 3000. :P

My laptop has a Radeon HD 6970 in it (currently disabled due to shitty drivers from Alienware/Dell, have new drivers just haven't tried installing yet) and a Mobile Intel HD Graphics Card.

Other laptop had a Geforce FX 2500 M in it before it went and fried itself. Currently looking into getting another card for it but refurbished ones cost $400+ and you can't find them new.

When a laptop has a beastly graphics card, how hot does the laptop get? O_O I'm assuming it must get pretty damn hot.

When the video card was working my laptop didn't run that hot actually, the good thing about Alienware laptops is they have beastly fans that keep the system cool and plenty of venting. Plus I also run a cooling fan under the laptop to keep temps even lower.

The laptop actually doesn't weigh much more then a normal laptop, roughly 7 or 8 lbs (haven't actually weighed it but it doesn't feel much heavier then my other one).

I really don't even hear the fans on the laptop, half the time I don't even think they're working that's how quiet they are. Plus if they did make a lot of noise the speakers are more then loud enough to compensate for that.

560 TI 2GB.....love the card hate the drivers. nVidia has turned to shit these past few years in terms of driver stability. The stock drivers for the card work pretty well. Upgrade to the latest and you'll run into random crashes when viewing video or playing games. Computer will freeze, monitor will turn purple...etc etc. I've had to roll back my drivers twice. nVidia claims their working on fixes...

GPU ... what is that? I've heard of CPU.


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.

graphics processing unit

The cpu is the brains of the computer, while a gpu is a chip for processing all the graphics. So many games have such intense graphics and real time processing, that a dedicated gpu is required to display the game.

Oh.. she has the same GPU setup as in my laptop. But her display has that slightly more in depth color over mine. :P

I like to clean my toilet with 2 pieces of bread, and then I spread mayo on both of them and eat it for lunch.

lmao. I thought that was what the spammer posted at first until I saw the edited by message. lmao @ DX! X'D
