    Halo 2, Gears of war for PC

    Does anyone know the cheapest place to buy either of them for a pc and if gears of war requires 2.4 GHz Intel processor or 2.0 GHz AMD will it run on either Intel® Core 2 Duo Processor T6500 (2.1GHz, 800MHz, 2MB) or Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core Processor T4200 (2.0GHz, 800MHz, 1MB cache) as I'm looking at a new laptop for going away to university.

    Thanks mate, but my current pc can't run them, that's why I want to know if those specs are good enough because I'm going to buy a laptop to go away to university with.
    Thanks for trying though

    Hi sorry to bother you, it's just that you seem to know a lot about pcs and laptops will both of the games run on the Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T6500 as for graphics card, I can either get Intel Integrated GMA 4500MHD or 256MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD4330, or could you reccomend a good laptop that could play them and could run microsoft office for university.
    Thanks for the help in the thread.

    Thanks for the help, gonna see what offers are on dell now as they have changed and am gonna order me a laptop.
    Thanks

    I wanted to return my Inspiron 1545 according to Dell the eighth day and it was reject (only 7 days)…the Dell service from the order to the post service is very bad..I had the big problems with delivery UPS service and with Dell costumer service..everything liquidate by phone from Madrid.

    Inspiron 1545 is one big :-( from Dell. It warms up very quickly after 2-3 hours you cannot write any email.The computer stops. My opinion is that processor is not potent, its performance is not good; the battery is very weak, it maintains only half an hour without source of alimentation..
    To write this comment I have to clap each letter twice or three times to the key board to appear these letters on display…horrible. My mum who has 63 years told me that she has never tried worst computer…I cannot not recommend it to anybody..
    I have:
    Pentium Dual Core T4200 (2,0GHz,800MHz,1MB)

    Thats what I was going to go for except it's 2.4GHz, but from what I've ordered from dell in the past they are reliable, I've had £1000-£1500 desktops every 3-4 years and they all still work now, but things like this worry me way too much, can anyone tell if this is going to run smoothly.
