I think on that buil ld that is the onboard gfx or id hope so. The 620 is barely better than the hd4000. Atleast thats how it is on my laptop.

Is the hd4000 powerful enough to play any games on lowest settings?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 22, 2012 7:11:46 PM PST
Yes.

Actually, some recent games even on mid depending on the processor.

Yep my laptop when i turn off graphics switching plays all games i have thrown at it, not at max, but min and medium settings at 1366x768(think thats the native res).

yeah i'd think so, but question is, why would you want to? it would almost be like playing the games with console graphics.

True, consoles with a turbo charger lol. But not much more tho.

Sudeley, how do turn off graphics switching?

Dr Black says:
I want to get a portable lab top four under 650 so I probably will have to stick with hd4000. I don't really care about graphics that much because I'm only going to be playing total war because I have an Xbox for other games

Sudeley says:
On my laptop? its in the bios to either have switching, or hd4000 only.

Sudeley says:
If you look around enough you can find one with dedicated graphics that is better than the nvidia 620m. But if you do not need high end gfx, the hd4000 will play most games on low or medium.

Dr Black says:
so having hd4000 only improves the graphics?

Sudeley says:
No, it does not do hybrid graphics, if your laptop has dedicated video and its switchable it switches to hd4000 to save battery when not using the power of the dedicated graphics, then when you use say cuda or a 3D game it switches to the dedicated for more power.

is it better to go with amd or intel? which is better at everyday tasks and which will be better for gaming?

Dr Black says:
also, are there any advantages of building my computer or just getting it custom from ibuypower?

Sudeley says:
Now days I say Intel. The i7 2600k and up are all better than the 8 core bulldozer. i am not a intel fanboy, I used to run amd exclusively in the past because they were better then, but now Intel 4 core i-series is better than the 8 core in power.

Sudeley says:
Depends if you want to get your hands dirty or not. You can have some difficulties doing it yourself. But if you build it yourself you know exactly what your getting and getting what you want. Some custom stores don't carry exactly the parts a person wants so they have to compromise.

I'm thinking about building this computer:

i5-3550
8 gig ram
AMD radeon hd 7750
1 TB HDD

Do you think I have any bottlenecks in my system that would prevent Mr from playing future games?

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 25, 2012 4:33:09 PM PST
7750's are on the low side for GPUs, but you could always upgrade down the road.

Sudeley says:
I think that will be fine then a few years from nkw upgrade the gpu. I dont know what the max ati card is but to me its a good card and faster than what i am using.

7750 is one of the lowest end cards they are currently manufacturing I think.

EDIT: Yes, it is the lowest 7000 series card:

AMD Radeon™ HD 7970 Graphics
AMD Radeon™ HD 7950 Graphics
AMD Radeon™ HD 7870 GHz Edition
AMD Radeon™ HD 7850 Graphics
AMD Radeon™ HD 7770 GHz Edition
AMD Radeon™ HD 7750 Graphics

Would the HD 7770 or 7850 be a worthy upgrade? Is it worth it?

The 7850 is right on par with what I use, the HD 6870. I run all of my games on max, but sometimes need to turn down the anti-aliasing.

And a comparison between the 7850 and the 7750:

The 7850 is about double the speed of the 7750. So, yes. Very worth it to get the 7850.

if that's true, then what will the Radeon HD 7670 look like on the PS4 (if that's the real card that rumors are saying they'll be useing on the final product of it)?
