    Laptop gaming on over watch.

    Hi all I have a MSI gaming laptop with a GeForce 960 12gb of ram and a i5 6000k 2.5ghz processor I'm wondering how well will it play this game? As CS:GO gets a low FPS while playing.

    Cheers.

    It should handle it fine. They recently did a ton of optimizations. Your laptop specs are similar to my bf's PC specs and he has no issues running high/ultra.

    Send your reason for adding me or be ignored.

    Thanks for the reply. So why do I face low fps on CS:GO is that due to the clock speed of the processor?

    Those are decent specs and should handle the game fine even with a laptop.

    So is it the processor clock that's letting CS:GO get not much more than 120FPS?

    you said csgo ran bad but even if it stays in the 90s thats okay since I'm sure you dont have a 144hz screen.

    I had a PC with lower spec but a higher clock speed on the CPU and it ran CS at 250fps. On 1920 but the laptop gets 120ish on 800x600....

    You should always do research before buying the game, installation requirement is very important if we do not do it correctly the game may not work. You can find more about games and their installations from the buyer or research about it on online stores.

    Your specs are just fine to handle Overwatch and will run smoothly. So, if you haven't joined the game as yet then do it! It's fun!
