    I just got a new computer. my old one was crapping out. tell me if this is alright. some of the reviews online said it would be sufficient to run this. because i use the computer for is this and the original roller coaster tycoon. lol

    VPCF122FX/B its a sony viao


    those are the specs. i was going to get a desktop but computers are hard to keep in stock on base over here.

    thanks for everyone that helped give me advice on getting a computer.

    i dno anything about laptop gfx cards but the cpu and ram are far above what you need for either games

    but really, cs:s and rct take like nothing to run.

    sweet thanks. i just started playing and everything is turned up all the way and im still getting 60-70 fps. before i had everything turned all the way down and i was getting as low as 10. this is much better. if i have to i can turn the quality down. its weird seeing cs in such good quality.

    I would still choose a tower over a laptop in any case, but still, that's very decent.

    Thanks guys. Your making me feel more confident in my choice. I agree on the tower but the on base store (which is on of the largest in all the militarys) was sold out of all towers. I even offered to buy a floor model as most of them were not even hooked up. The plus side is that I cN use this laptop to tune my car becUse the old one would hold a charge for about 5 minutes.
