Best recommendations for 2015 gaming

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I was thinking of buying a laptop. Since most of my favorite games are from 2015 and backwards, I'd like to get something that is both economical but could also smoothly run a game like Witcher 3 (high settings, 60 FPS) which would probably be the most demanding game out of that bunch. Thanks to all in advance.

Around 500 bucks.

 

It's actually intended to be a laptop for work but... I know I'll just use it a bit for gaming as well. Don't want it to be my main rig though.

Are you from US? Can stretch budget to $600? No preferences on display size and battery life?

Look for a 1050. I don't think a 1050§Ti is possible with that budget. Also you can basically forget about Witcher 3 @60fps unless you fit a 1060 or better in it.

Look for something with Vega 8/10 like Thinkpad E495/E595 (this is better) and Ideapad S340-15API, however it's only good for light gaming

Thanks, I know it might be too ambitious indeed. What about Mass Effect 3 ? Would a 1050 do ?

 

Then again, checking prices I've seen those 1050 models are around $1000 dollars ?

He wants to play Witcher 3. Idk if the Vega 10 will be able to produce more than 20fps @1080p ?

Look at benchmarks. But anything lower is pointless for such games

If you want GTX models you're probably looking at used market

Let's lower expectations a bit... replace Witcher 3 with Skyrim as the most demanding game this laptop will see. Would a Thinkpad E595 or a 1050 do nicely for high settings and 60 FPS ?

asking for too much - need a proper gaming laptop for this

Damn... even for Skyrim ?

You've been very helpful guys. I might just have to take that money and invest it in the desktop.

Low settings though ?

yeah but it is better than not playing at all i played on a low end system a long time before i upgraded and low settings look completely fine in most games and does not hinder the gameplay at all

It depends on the game I think.
