Video and sound cards
iYogi recommends that a minimum 1GB video card is necessary in all gaming laptops. There are some gaming laptops which are powered by dual video cards such as NVIDIA GeForce video cards which range from 1.5GB to 3GB video card memory. Gaming laptops such as Asus G74SX, MSI GT683, Dell Alienware M14x, Alienware M11x have NVIDIA GeForce GTX video cards with 2GB to 3GB video memory.
iYogi advises gaming laptops having quad-core processors. Gaming laptops with quad-core processors that are clocked at 2.0GHz processing speed are considered high-performance machines. Most of these laptops are powered by Intel Core i7. If you are looking for Intel Core i7 PCs, then zero in on Dell Alienware M18x, MSI GT783-625US, Dell Alienware M14x R3, Sony VAIO VPC-F236FM, Asus G74SX-BBK8, and Toshiba Satellite P755-S5269 among others.
Voluminous storage space is another aspect you need to focus on as many games occupy 30GB of your hard disk space. On top of such huge games, there are other files such as videos, movies, audio, pictures that will occupy large space of the hard disk drive. Hence, iYogi advises you to look for minimum 500GB hard disk drive. Along with space, make sure the hard disk drive speed is equally important which must be 7,200 RPM. iYogi recommends gamers to look for some more additional features that create immersive gaming experience such as full HD display, a minimum 15 to 17-inch display, longer battery life of seven hours and more.
