    What do you think of my future computer

    Tell me what you think of my future gaming laptop that I could get in November
    Personally I think its really beast for its price (I live in the UK so $800 converted to GBP is about £500)
    Please tell me whether I should keep it or look for a new one and if you think I should get a new one could you drop me a link either amazon.co.uk/.com and if you do make sure its a laptop and its under £550/$850
    Many thanks and here is the computer I'm getting
    Amazon.com: Acer Aspire V3-571G-9686 15.6-Inch Laptop (Black): Electronics

    Meh. It's got an alright CPU and GPU. The fact that it's an i7 is alright, but it's only going to be running at 2.2Ghz.
    Also, if you're planning on moving data/recording games etc. - your HDD isn't very good at all. Outdated.
    Only 3 USB ports? Not a lot of room for much.
    What will you be using the laptop for?

    They are actually really good. I bought mine for about $1300 and i got 8gb 1600mhz ram and its a really good laptop. I play games like DayZ/Arma 2 Wasteland at about 30 frames constant in cities like Cherno/Elektro. I also play battlefield 3 on the highest graphics at about 50 fps. The hard drive is pretty outdated, definately one of the flaws. Besides that its good value for money.

    That CPU is pretty damn good, but that GPU is a complete and utter pile of shit.
    You won't be able to get more than 10 FPS on any game made after 2005.

    When the earth is changed into a humid dungeon,
    In which Hope like a bat
    Goes beating the walls with her timid wings
    And knocking her head against the rotten ceiling;
    When the rain stretching out its endless train
    Imitates the bars of a vast prison
    And a silent horde of loathsome spiders
    Comes to spin their webs in the depths of our brains,
    All at once the bells leap with rage
    And hurl a frightful roar at heaven,
    Even as wandering spirits with no country
    Burst into a stubborn, whimpering cry.
    — And without drums or music, long hearses
    Pass by slowly in my soul; Hope, vanquished,
    Weeps, and atrocious, despotic Anguish
    On my bowed skull plants her black flag.

    I'm mainly going to be using it for gaming and school work, I have my own 1tb HDD too so I'm not too concerned about that, I was thinking of overclocking the CPU too and I also an extra USB port dock so I would be able to plug in my Sidewinder X4, Naga hex and sometimes my Xbox controller

    You'd actually be able to get about 30-40 FPS in BF3 on 1377x768 and Medium Settings, though anything higher and you'll get unplayable framerates.
    You can check the Benchmarks if you want:
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M Review - Performance

    Could you recommend anything better, because now I'm slightly worried about have an outdated graphics card and not being able to play new games like Battlefield 4, watchdogs and others

    Are you already set on a Laptop?
    ​A you can get astronomically more power from a PC of the same price.

    I'm not set on a computer, I've got until November to look at different options, just from what I've seen this is at the top of my list, so far so if you know any better for the same price I'd be very grateful if you could send a link or a name
