my laptop litterally gets hot to the touch when I play for more than an hour, if its on my lap, my legs will sweat... you figure I'd take a 15 minute break or something. Thanks for your help! Hopefully I'll be enjoying STO in all its glory before the end of the month.

I never buy Dell for laptops, the main thing being that the laptop I lost was a Dell and part of the problem was weak saudering and shoddy manufacturing.

Sure part of it was my fault for giving it alot of heat, but after having it professionally diagnosed the report was that part of the problem was in manufacturing.

If you want to buy a good laptop thats a whole new world of eyepopping headaching issues. :p

(My bets are usually on Toshiba, a friend has one thats over 4 years old and still going (which is good for a laptop) and my new Toshiba laptop (yes I am a two computer guy. sue me) has functioned beautifully even though its a medium level machine)

Quad core actually does nothing for games. All games only use one or two cores anyways

I have a dual core 2Ghz overclocked to 3Ghz and 2GB RAM and a ATI 4870. I can run with everthing on max in 1920x1200.
