    there isnt a mobile graphics card in existence that will play bf3 on ultra

    although that screen has a low resolution, so you should be at least able to play on high, but dont count on ultra at all, even higher end desktop gpus have problems running bf3 on ultra

    edit: an alienware m17 running SLI mobile gpus wont be able to play bf3 on ultra at 1080p+

    hell a desktop running 560ti (mid range card $229 each) in dual sli will still stutter playing on ultra because of limited vram.

    there are people with ATI cards that have 3gb of gpu memory that are reporting 2.7GB of vram usage from bf3 on ultra.

    its not because the gpu is too slow at least on an SLI notebook, its because bf3 is immensely graphic intensive and a gpu memory hog. you may get good fps above 40 in 1080p, but it will still stutter like hell because its constantly loading textures because it cant hold them all in vram

    oh, and yea there arent many pcs that cant play mw3 in at least high especially at 720P, i have a ati 6770 which is a tad slower then the 650m and i can play mw3 on high at 900p and easily get 50+ fps

    MW3 will definitely play in max settings, BF3 probably barely in max. The 650M is fairly high end though with DDR5 memory, and you might have a good chance to max BF3 out if you plan to play on 768p resolution. The specs are great though.

    Not ultra for BF3, but high-ish.

    Max out MW3, though.


    There are laptops that can max out BF3. They're just ungodly expensive.
