It's ok, but you'll have to run planetside 2 on low settings

>>30002433 Do you think it would be alright to OC the 660 a bit?

>>30002443 Probably, if you have the option. Adding voltage is what adds heat and you won't be doing that on a laptop, you will get some gains from overclocking though.

>>30002455 Because I was going to that relatively soon, what would be a solid choice? I only really want enough room for Windows and a few games, so around 64GB. I believe it has room for an M SATA.

>>30002443 Got the Y580 myself, seems like everyone has one by now. Here's about the limit for safe OC on the GPU, though I'd recommend keeping it a little lower or you'll have voltage issues

>>30002603 Was such a great deal for the money, couldn't pass it up! Thanks for the picture, man. Is the OC noticeable that much?

>>30002665 It helps out a lot, even skyrim runs great, not quite maxed out settings, but for a laptop I can't complain. I'd stick with a max stable clock of 1160/2700, in case you want specific numbers
