Question about ASUS P5PE-VM Motherboard

1 Answer

Hi am trying to buy my first Laptop and know seems to be able to help me

I want a laptop for college and, i do want to play some games like Guildwars as well. My budget was $1000 and i found this laptop for $1100 Asus G50Vm-X1. I have been told so many things am just not sure what to go with. I have been told get a better chip, and lesser graphics card, and the other way around. why would i do it either way? The graphics card in this laptop to my understanding is really nice, and the processor isnt that bad. It also fits into my budget and i have used Asus products before on my desktops. What would you say about this laptop? And what if not this might be a good suggestion in that price range. It wont let me put the Laptops model number below but here is a link to it's specs

Asus G50Vm-X1 is an excellent choice if you want a budget laptop powerful enough to play game at a not too high price. The 512 Mb cards will enable you to play recent games with efficient hardware acceleration.
If you want a pure gamer laptop, with top of the range CPU, you will need to start your budget from $1500 or so.
Do not buy laptops with two Gb RAM, they are slightly cheaper, but you will need to upgrade memory immediately if you want to play games.
Overall I think you are doing a good choice, if you buy a laptop with bigger CPU , you will have either to increase your budget, or to sacrifice some other resource, HDD size, RAM or video adapter, and you will need to pay more money later on, when you notice RAM is not enough or HDD is full.

Memory upgrade


The memory is located through a access panel on the bottom of the unit. It is very easy to remove and install. Try to handle the memory sticks with care not to have any static electricity on you self. I have found one possible site to purchase the proper replacement memory sticks from. Good luck and have a good day.

Is this good for me? Asus G50Vm-x1


I would advise a desktop for gaming and notebook for school and web browsing. It is difficult to "squeeze" high graphic quality in a limited notebook space.

It's hard to go wrong with any notebook to be honest with you. That being said try to stick with well known name ds such as toshiba, dell, hp, etc. If you haven't heard of the brand it's best to stay away from it.

Do you need specific recommendations?

Hi, it depends what game it is you are trying to play but if it is a recent graphics intensive game you will not be able to play it on your laptop as it will not be up to spec which is why you are receiving that message.

You either need to buy a computer that has a graphics card or buy a games console.

Sorry I don't have any better advice for you except you needing to spend more money!

The Right Laptop for College


What are you going to mainly use it for?
If its only college and to run basic apps, macbook will do you fine.
If you're looking to play games, then macbook pro (as it has the latest nvidia geforce 8600gt graphics card)
