Thats almost all he can do to upgrade his laptop, its not like he can change the gfx card now is it? I guess he could upgrade to an SSD but that's about it
Sorry but no. No, no no.
BF3 does not beat C2 at all, and Crytek even made a F2P game (warface) that beats its graphics..
Heres a comparison:
Battlefield 3 vs Crysis 2 DX11 - YouTube
Yes, see what I mean?
Far Cry 3 ran on a shitty unreal engine that does not half compete with Cryengine 3, so no.
Serious Sam 3 obviously not, don't know what you were thinking there.
Metro 2033, dude it doesnt even beat Crysis 1:
Metro 2033 vs Crysis very high on i5 760, gtx 460 - YouTube
Skyrim is not even in the same genre, and even with mods doesnt even COMPETE with Crysis 2.
Again, your personal opinion about what 'looks' better has absolutely nothing to do with technichal specs. You posting irrelevant youtube videos just shows you don't know what you're talking about. The games I mentioned all have higher top end requirements to run at maximum specs than Crysis 2. Which games look better in your personal opinion is irrelevant. Art direction and design has nothing to do with hardware requirements. Crysis 2 had great art direction and design [and horrible writing] but that doesn't make the system requirements greater than they actually are in comparison to other games.
For example, Skyrim doesn't look anywhere near as good, but has much higher requirements to run at max settings than Crysis 2 does due to its size and the amount of objects that can be interacted with. Battlefield 3 has higher requirements as well. The environments are fully destructible, and it uses a lot of particle effects, and does a lot of other post processing effects that Crysis 2 does not. That requires a lot of processing power to do. How 'pretty' you think Crysis 2 is in comparison doesn't change the fact that those games have higher hardware requirements.
I like how you look in depth on everything I say, that was only an example
I am assuming it played with EXTREME stuttering, because with 2 GB of ram and a dual core CPU theres NO WAY you can run it maxed out 50+ fps
Just because a developer uses Unreal III to develop two games does not mean that they will both have the same system requirements to run. The engines are tweaked, adjusted, and enhanced based on the needs of the developer and advances in technology for each individual game. Other 3rd party systems are often used in tandem with the base engine, and post processing and other effects can vary wildly. An Unreal 3 game made today will be vastly different than an Unreal 3 game made three years ago. Hell, it will be different than another game running on the same engine that is released on the same day.
You also don't seem to grasp the concept of different levels of hardware. I was running on a high end 1gb GPU with a very fast CPU [which could easily and safely be OCed to above 3.0ghz]. It was more than enough to run Crysis 2 on max settings with only 2gb of Ram.
Once again: You do not seem to understand that high capacity Ram is probably the least important component of a gaming computer. Having lower Ram capacity is easily compensated for with other components. Yes, you do need a certain base amount, and yes having more does help lesser components run better. High capacity Ram is still not as necessary as you seem to think it is with good components supporting it.
You're basing your opinion on what 'looks better' to you and based on the content of your previous posts it appears as if you have no actual knowledge of how hardware or memory actually works or how games interact with either. Whether or not a game looks better is a matter of opinion, the technical aspects are not up to debate and are not a matter of opinion.
You're simply stating 'this looks better to me, so it must take more to run it than these other games' and that's not how it works.
But anyway, this is solved now so theres no point going on
