LOL i have a cooling pad, ive never used a laptop without one actaully, i find the antec cooling pad is the worst pad on earth but the cheaper ebay 3 fan pad is superior, dropping my acer CPU temp from 53 to 44C (9C!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
its obviously not MINI PCI? does anyone know? i dont see an atheros card that i can replace my crappy 3945 with. all the atheros cards are standard miniPCI (which are about twice as wide)
EDIT: just found out its PCIE
i recommend 2GB of ram for BF2, with 1GB wont even load on my desktop, my old laptop had 1GB and it swapped like crazy, not even worth playing cuz there was so much lag.
CSS i play all the time on my X1400 but it kinda sucks cuz on...
i dont think there is an X1900XTX notebook card yet....?
if there was a laptop with that. you can probably buy 2 desktops with X1900XTX in crossfire with 4GB of ram and a Raid 5 array of HDDs for the same price.
