View Full Version : ASUS g53sx-xr1 question on gaming esp Star Wars: The Old Republic

02-09-2012, 03:52 PM
So I'm still thinking of which gaming laptop to buy, I looked for at the G74 which is still expensive here, the G73 was out of stock. So I looked around more and saw the G53.
I'm getting a laptop since I will travel a bit.
I am wondering if this model spec can let memplay Star Wars: The Old Republic at high settings with good fps. Or if not high maybe a custom setting.

Core i7 2630QM
NVidia 2GB GTX 560M GDDR5
15.6" Full HD (1920 x 1080) Glossy
3 x 4GB ddr3 1333
640gb 5400rpm HDD

Can someone send me also a good review link. Thank you.

The system requirements for that game is:

AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+ or better
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 2 GHz or better

Operating system:
Windows XP
Windows Vista/7

Windows XP 1,5GB
Windows Vista/7 2GB

256MB or better, with Shader 3.0 or better
The integrated graphics should have 2GB or more

Graphic card:
ATI X1800 or better
nVidia 7800 or better
Intel 4100 Integrated Graphics or better

8x or faster

Just to compare the system spec you have listed, it looks like you should run it just fine.

But there is one - though, you did find a version with 2GB vRAM for the graphic card that gives 128-bit and is not the same as a card with 1,5GB or 3GB vRAM since that is 192-bit version.

So I would hang in the market and hope for to stumble on one G-Series with good specs :)

EDIT: Or if you can wait ASUS would probably release their new G55/G75 around April when Intel release their new Ivy Bridge processor :)
