some of the nasties you will eventually run into. I run in max texture settings and resolution for the 9860 laptop.

It was also laughably easy to level up. I love the quest system in EQ2, and the game now supports solo players and duo players just as much as it does full groups. Nothing touches the graphics or sound in an online game.
Now for the first question, the settings... Things hardware wise that make a LARGE difference in that game is 2gigs of memory, if you have one gig, nothing you will do will make it smooth anywhere, so there is no point in posting how I have all the many graphics options setup. If you have good fast 2 gigs of mem then you can increase the graphics a great deal and still stay smooth. On my laptop it plays awesome, but only after I plopped in the extra 1 gig of mem. I know this because on my desktop, it is the same deal, 2 gigs and X800XTPE + 3.2EE (running at 3.8ghz) runs the game with just about everything maxed out.

But teaming up with a buddy in my dorm or something would be much more doable. .
