Will the 1st option play D3 with acceptable FPS on at least mid settings?
Cos if its not necessary to get option 2, then I probably won't as it'll save me about 200 bucks
Thx in advance for your kind advice!
ad1: yes it will. It will very propably have around 40+more fps on mid settings(maybe even 60). And very propably still 30+ on high.
In fact, I think you will have very nice framerate even on highest graphic settings.
Please check this link concerning your graphic card
When you scroll about halfway down you can see performance in certain games like mass effect, skyrim, starcraft and so on.
Regarding The processor, it is a very good one for notebooks. I have similiar one (i5 430m) and it handles new games pretty well. Also 4gb or 8Gb doesnt really make the difference when it comes to any todays pc game.
