Not bad, but are you sure the processor's not a Core 2 Duo? Because a 1.7 ghz Core Duo would be slow as sh*t. It should play all those games no problem.

I'd say it's right at the minimum for current day programs and games. Under 2Ghz is a bit weak, but it's close so it's not that bad. Anything lower would just be too slow. I think my brother has an early x64 type AMD with 1.6Ghz and it's pretty slow, but he also only has 1GB of RAM, so that could be holding it back as well.

The 7600GT is pretty nice, good for a laptop. 2GB of RAM is just right.

 

Everything sounds right for a laptop, so it should do you just fine icon14.gif

Like I said, if it's a core 2 duo then 1.7 is plenty for that card, if its core duo then it's weak. A 1.7 core 2 duo is about equal to a 2.1-ish athlon X2, so a 4200+, which is plenty fast for everything but video encoding. A 1.7 core duo though, that's about equal to an athlon X2 at around 1.5-ish, and they don't even go that low. tounge.gif

I thought the only difference was x64 support?

Ooh, didn't notice it's not a Core 2, just a regular Core 2 duo. That's pretty slow then...

You've manage to beat San Andreas and even record videos of it on Youtube with no lag http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CMYj_PoPA0 | http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHy9lKJaBHE

The Core 2 Duo ain't even listed on the system requirements for San Andreas, which mean it wasn't a known processor at that time - so what you would expect? Yes, the Core 2 Duo + nVidea GeForce 7600 obviously going to run it on all settings maxed out smoothly.

 

Core 2 Duo's are BRAND NEW! San Andreas is OLD! Maybe Crysis or Assassin's Creed wouldn't run smoothly without upgrading to a GeForce 8800.

I wouldn't say Core 2 Duo's are brand new, but they are relatively new.

 

As for the videos, while there aren't any lag parts (from the 15 seconds I watched) there is noticeable low fps's.

The new laptop should play it with settings all on high and you should be able to record quite well.

What makes you say that? I have an X1950 PRO and it's amazing. Bought it for $160 back when the only competition, the 7900GT cost over $240. Pretty good bang for the buck there. The XTX is a beast, but it's old, go with an 8800GT of HD3870, those would be cheaper and faster.

When recording games actually, the overall performance of the comptuer will struggle more. So the lag on Youtube is pretty good. What will the actual lag be like if he was in-game and not recording anything? So we should expect a lot of speed increase for a old game like San Andreas on a Core 2 Duo.
