    G53SX-A1 optimize for gaming help?

    Hey guys, this is my first laptop. Finally decided I was going to get back into PC gaming rather than consoles. Since BF3 is nearing its release date I was testing the waters with Crysis 2. Forgive my PC ignorance but how do I configure my GeForce 560M for maximum gaming power besides the really technical options like over clock? The geforce settings are a bit too overwhelming for my knowledge. If anyone could help out that would be great...

    btw, is there any chance i could use the VGA input for xbox/ps3? I'm just curious if this is an input and not only an output

    thanks!

    Grab the new beta drivers, 285.35 Verde, as they're optimized for BF3. As for the VGA port, it's not an input.

    Another question

    I have another question about the Power4Geat Hybrid. What the heck is this and why are there so many stupid options? I have 4 options which i do not care about other than performance and dimming the brightness now and then. I find i accidentally leave it in a mode I do not want and it lags my gaming!

    is there a way I can just leave it on high performance and uninstall the application?

    You'll never find an up to date driver on the Asus site. Lol

    Go to the link in this thread and download that driver. http://www.asusrog.com/forums/showth...s-beta-are-out

    I hope it works out for you!

    I believe so. The G53 has been out for a while, right?

    If not, you'll need to wait until someone modifies the install script.

    Let us know what happens, ok?

    That's ok. Notice that the last 5 digits make up 285.38?

    285.38 is sort of shorthand so we mere mortals can remember what driver we're talkin' about. lol

    ooooooh! much appreciated

    ok another question... I really despise this Power4Gear utility... I un-installed it, will it have any negative outcome? I figured I can always have the maximum setting using the power options to maximum (battery icon on the bottom right). The reason I had to un-install it was the fact that when i moved to battery mode/efficient mode, the screen would go all white and literately blind me!

    is there a point to this Power4gear?
