    Default Is my laptop good for PC gaming?

    Im still gonna use my PS3 most of the time (if I do have time) but I just wanna know if this laptop I have is good for gaming. Sometimes I just wanna get some games to kill time until I find something else or when the living room is empty. So anyways here it is.


    Just let me know if this can even play some game like half life or something or if its just crap.

    Meh. For heavy gaming, the no. But for moderate gaming then I would say yes.

    I prefer consoles over pc gaming because pc gaming is more lonely and not that much of fun. Yes is faster and other stuff but is more fun playing on consoles, using the controller and being able to play with friends in the same console, something that you can't do on pc.

    First off... Da fuq is this? You can use a controller on pc games. You can even play online with other people. Hell you can connect a headset if you so choose. And if friends were on pc games then you could play with them. Pc gaming is a little too "Pro" for my taste. I am a casual gamer.

    @abg that stock intel processor won't fair too well on most games. Also the hard drive spins pretty slow and if it's loaded from your hard drive I think you would fall victim to freezing.
    If you were looking to play games on a pc you would need to upscale your graphics card a bit. Also that processor may not work well either.
    The Intel Pentium 3558U is an entry-level, ULV (ultra low voltage) dual-core processor clocked at 1.7 GHz and was launched in Q1 2014. See this wouldn't hold up too well.
    I am running two core duo processors clocked at 2.20 GHz each. Over clocked to 3.14 GHz each. And I still struggle to play online games. (my factory intel graphics card is probably the problem for me) Anyway playing app based games or mostly stored online games (like LOL) would probably be fine.

    Thanks for the advice guys. Im just thinking of playing some older games and maybe setup some emulators. Only PC game I have is goat simulator. And thats on my main laptop which lags even when playing that unless I reduce the settings to the point where i barely can read text.

    It's not a bad processor, for consumers.


    Out the box with your integrated Intel HD Graphics, you have about 256mb ~ 500mb dedicated video memory. Or less, who knows, they're all different. I have Intel HD Graphics 3xxx series with 256mb, I can play WoW on medium.

    Minecraft on mid range settings and not worry about FPS jumping all around.

    GTA IV plays alright on low, CoD [email protected] on low, L4D + L4D 2 on medium settings, Portal + Portal 2 on mid-high settings, and couple other work.


    My Asus is almost identical, except just a year older and rocking a celeron. So you shouldn't have too much of a problem finding games that work on it, just watch out because the integrated gfx love to crank up the heat when they're playing heavy duty games.

    Check on http://canyourunit.com/ before buying/downloading a game, it's sometime right.

    You could run WoW on lowest everything at a playable frame-rate.

    Maybe, that graphics card is what's sticking out to me.
