    Currently im using an old broken laptop hp530. I am planning on buying Asus K55VM-SX086D for gaming; but some people are saying that they are having trouble with this model. they are saying that when they start playing Max Payne 3, it keeps shutting down in 10 to 20 mins. some are saying that its because of high temp. and some exchanged with a new piece.....is there anyone else here with the same problem? I'd like to know more about this problem. If you know more about it or the actual problem, please let me know. along with solution. thanks :)

    I'd question whether these users have been trying to OC it.

    The new 630M/640M and 650M have some real problems with throttling. I have a samsung with a 650M and i7 and that throttled after 20 minutes. The latest Dell laptop were found to throttle under load. I'd wait.

    I found samsung better. Ive took np550psc-so1in, in the last week....this is pretty good and the cost is also affordable for me...I'm able to play GTA 4, mafia 2, nfs run, mass effect and all the new games at high graphic settings.

    I had this model and had horrible throttling when playing anything on high. Sounds like they may of fixed it.

    I am running a Geforce 640LE on my Sony Vaio S, overclocked to 900 from a stock 450.

    it runs at a max of about 70degrees C, which seems ok, although that is with the fans in overdrive.

    Its a pretty good card, can run most games in medium settings.

    @103Aditya369: hey i have asus k44vm and i have no such trouble playing any of such high end games at high graphics . my friend too bought this same lap and he says that when u use trainers with games it shuts suddenly down , but i have no such probs , the only diff b/t mine and his lap is that his is windows 7 ultimate (NOT Genuine) and mine is windows 8 pro (Genuine). i asked about this in few showrooms and they said that "its just bcoz ur OS is not genuine".
    so i would say its an awesome laptop but they could have made it a little more stylish ...!!!!

    Tell your friend to take his trainers off when playing to solve the shut down issue.

    FCUTA!

    I have a Lenovo laptop with 635M. Not sure how throttling manifests itself, can anyone explain in layman's terms?
    So far I'm happy with the laptop except that it needs to be plugged in when I play some "serious" games (i.e. Burnout Paradise, Flatout 2) otherwise there are noticeable problems with frame rate - or so I think.
