That GPU is a pretty decent GPU for laptops, its not exactly a "super gaming one" per se but it should handle more recent games at medium to high settings.

This link will show you what to expect for certain games: (scroll down to bottom)

NOTE: they use an i7 for some of these benchmarks, but the performance should be relatively similar (albeit a bit lower) as most games are more GPU bound rather than CPU.

When you are recording expect a drop in frame rates (perhaps 5 to 10 fps; depending on the game) .

I noticed the 1 year alienware support, generally i do not recommend Alienware as they generally like to jack up their prices, you could probably find a laptop that isnt as flashy but has better hardware to fill you needs at that price point.

Hope this helps!


I think the fact that it is alienware makes it overpriced and you are bound to be able to get a more available machine.
If it's special circumstances that this is as good as it gets, then yes it'll do what you need it to.
