  3. I hope this doesn't really tax a two-year-old standard laptop.

I only got about 4GB of RAM on my PC and I don't think it's upgradable. I'll get the PS3 version instead if I have to (my XBox 360 Elite's ethernet port is broken so I can't buy anymore digital games for it), but I'd rather be able to take the game on the road/plane with me and not have to worry as much about input delay.

Of all the possible choices to base PC performance on, listing RAM and nothing else is probably the most useless spec to reveal. 4GB of RAM is, in fact, fine for even the latest and greatest PC games with only a few exceptions like BF3. What matters in GPU. But an HD port of a PS2 game should not be hard to run.

LMAO dude.. Hell that laptop can run BF 3 at medium setting.. I'm not sure if you're trolling or what... My laptop has similar specs and it runs most of the latest games in medium settings just fine..

I'm not trolling. I just don't know what my laptop can handle without shorting out. I don't think it was exactly designed for gaming. When I play Portal and Saints Row: The Third on it, it heats up like a mother ****er! And no, I don't try to run those two games at the same time (I don't think I could even if I wanted to since they're both tied to the Steam application). I'm not an idiot.

Oh if you're talking about overheating, I hear you.. Mine does that also.. Pretty much all specced laptops have this problem. Just a given when something small and that powerful runs games with such a small fan for the power supply.. Plus the design of the laptops usually have the fans on the bottom where you don't get much ventilation as is.. There is a reason you see similar specced laptops in which one will go for 900-1200 range and others will go for about 2500.. The more expensive ones don't overheat as much iirc..
Along with a similary to more powerful CPU that runs less nm which directly ties into usage and overheating.. Usually a processor that runs less nm will run the same performance but less power therefore less overheating..
