my budget is 900-1000 dollars.
I do have to get a laptop and not a desktop.
Keep in mind it doesn't have to run perfectly. I just want to be able to play it on my laptop until the PS3 version comes out. I just want to be 100% sure it will run before I buy a laptop.
If it has to be a laptop, this is a great site to see which laptop GPU's are the most powerful. http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html
Looking at that list, the 5870 from ATI seems like a good choice but as I said in a previous post, the cheapest I saw on NewEgg was $1150. The 5870 is ranked 11th which is great. If you can squeeze out an extra $150 I really believe it would be worth it. If you absolutely cannot, then the GTS 360M from nVidia is a close second place. For $949.99 with free shipping and no tax, you can buy this laptop on NewEgg... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834114796
That has the GTS 360M in it and should be able to run the game. Here is a link to the $1149.99 laptop with the ATI 5870 in it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152206
The first link with the nVidia card actually has a large screen, which might be nice for gaming. Also, regardless what you end up buying, do a clean installation of Windows 7. You'll almost always see a performance boost from a clean install versus the OS that comes already installed on the laptop with all of it's bloatware. Edited, Sep 18th 2010 4:47pm by Jeraziah
