    cheapest asus rog laptop for playing witcher 3 at reasonable (+medium) settings?

    Hi guys

    I am saving money to buy a laptop and I would very much like to be able to play Witcher 3 on it at acceptable settings. By acceptable settings I think I mean above medium settings (would prefer high settings, but you know). I do not know much about the proper fps and other computer talk. I just want the game to run smoothly and look good as well.

    I have been trying to understand exactly what things to take into consideration when choosing a model but as I said, I am not exactly versed in the hardware thingies. I've seen videos on the web with people testing the Witcher game with various models of GTX, but is that all it takes? I can't just say 'It's got GTX960 so it will work', right? Is a 2.0 GHz processor a good processor for what I want? Should I look for a higher GTX or a higher GHz count? You see, I really don't know.

    So I thought it would just be easier if I could find someone that can help me find the right type of gaming laptop that I need. That way I can see exactly how much money I should save.

    I hope one of you can lend a hand, I'd be über grateful.

    Thank you very much!

    any? So that is all that matters? A gtx970 with a 2.0 GHz processor is better than a gtx860 with a 3.2 GHz processor? (i don't know if such combos exist, just giving an example)

    Yep it's not the cheapest, but you need at least a 970m if you want to keep your laptop some time and be able to play new games at medium/high settings. Like Julskey said, forget the 965m! To play witcher 3 you need a 970m.

    Witcher 3 is a CPU intense game, but, the most important is the GPU. As long as you get a laptop with a 970m, the cpu will be good enough to go with the 970m.

    My old laptop, the G750JX with GTX770M ran the witcher 3 at around 40FPS everything low. still looks great imo.
    My current laptop, G752VY with GTX980M runs at a smooth 60FPS on Ultra but hairworks turned off.
