  1. You can check to see if you game runs at the framerates that your it should be running at with your GPU. If it is...then it should be good (Task manager may just be showing 0% when it is not) You could also use software like MSI Afterburner to see if there is an increase in GPU Usage once you play Battlefield V. GPU Usage should increase a lot when going from nothing to gaming.
  2. It appears my dad does not approve me spending my own money on such an expensive laptop In this case...I'll probably upgrade my current PC with good deal parts here and there (like a B550M Motherboard I found on the Prime Day Deals) and CPU/GPU in the coming months. I would then go with a more budget laptop for University when the time comes.
  3. Thank you!! I was not aware of this and learned more about how laptops handle their dedicated and integrated graphics. I’ll go for the Legion.
  4. I also looked at the Asus ROG STRIX G15 and it looks good too! I'll probably go with either the Asus ROG STRIX G15 or Lenovo Legion 5 (depends on stock and prices when I come to buy it in around 1-2 months) Thanks for the suggestion!
  5. I'm in the UK aswell and it's kind of impossible to get a Desktop GPU right now for a good price ( ◡́.◡̀) Indeed it is! Going the route of the laptop appears to be the best value route right now. Unfortunately the Desktop route has been blocked In the UK
  6. Yes that sounds good! As you said, I should be able to find an outlet within 7 hours At first I was thinking about going for the 1440p but you made good points and I think I will go with the 1080p 165Hz as it is more than enough and saves battery. I'm happy that they've built this laptop well! I'll be sure to open it up once in a while to clean it up! Thanks for the reply ( ◑‿◑)ɔ┏--┑٩(^◡^ )
  7. Thanks for moving this post. I'll be more careful next time when posting!
  8. This is the main reason I was thinking against a gaming laptop for University. I will do this if I end up upgrading my PC instead but for now the Lenovo Legion 5 2021 looks like a good buy (It has a Hybrid power mode, which extends battery life and gives around 7 hours!) Thanks for the Info! After looking at some videos, I think Lenovo appear to have good thermals/thermal settings! That's the plan I'm looking at the Lenovo Legion 5 2021 Ryzen 7 5800H RTX 3070 165Hz That sounds great! The laptop 3070 appears to in between the deskto
  9. I checked and it appears that the battery life can last around 7 hours when set to one of the power modes and around 3 hours running in the normal mode. 7 hours sounds pretty solid and should do the trick. After seeing your messages, I checked some videos, which ran several games on the Lenovo laptop and it appeared to perform well in temperatures with 60s for the GPU and 70s for the CPU. I think this shouldn’t cause throttling so it sounds good. Thanks for the heads up @Tech87 @Forbidden Wafer!
  10. Good point @wONKEyeYEs I’ll watch some videos and found out how long the battery will last during productivity sessions. Thanks for the reminder!
  11. I was planning on upgrading my build (had for like 3-4 years) and I noticed that recent gaming laptops were looking pretty good! At first I felt like it was a crazy idea but I started creating a new build that I could switch to in the coming months and it was around 1k (Ryzen 5 5600X + 3060 assuming I could get one for around 400). This didn't even include storage (already have 2 SSDs and a HDD) and it was a little costly. I then looked at some laptops and I found a laptop with a Ryzen 7 5800H, 3070, 16GB RAM, 165Hz display, 512GB M.2 (with space for my current 1TB M.2) and more for
  12. @HelpfulTechWizardThanks for the info! I might wait and then upgrade to a full new build in the future (once the stock and prices of all parts calm down) I was thinking of upgrading because I wanted to reach 72fps 1080p at least on the new Battlefield 2042. The System Requirements haven't been revealed so I might wait and see how it performs in the beta to decide on if I need to upgrade now. @Chris Pratt I'm trying to save up for something bigger so I would prefer to spend less (not upgrade mobo if possible) If needed, I will consider upgrading to the B450 to go with the
  13. Hi, I have an Asus A320M K for my motherboard and I've been using a Ryzen 5 1500X for a few years. It's been doing well! I was thinking of upgrading to a Ryzen 5 3600. Many don't recommend using the Ryzen 5 3600 with A320 boards but if they have the same power consumption as the CPU I've been using for all this time, it should be fine right? Is there anything else that could cause issues?
  14. Update: I cloned my original SSD to my new one (using Macrium Reflect) so I now have Windows installed on my new SSD in the GPT partition style! Thank you for your help @BigDamn
  15. Even when using the media creation tool, the UEFI boot did not work (same issue where the computer restarts after windows logo appears for a bit). When booting with the other USB option (MBR), the windows installation appears but once I go to select the drive, it says that "Windows cannot be installed to this disk. The selected disk is of the GPT partition style". My current SSD uses GPT and that is what I was hoping to use but I think this means that I may need to use the MBR partition style on my new SSD (I'll do it through the Windows partitions tool)
