Origin PC offers overclocked processors in EON17-S gaming laptop
Gamers are an extremely discerning lot, and some of them can be more picky than the rest. It doesn’t matter if their gaming skills aren’t exactly up to par with the rest of your clan mates, but as long as you have the best hardware on the market, then that alone is enough for bragging rights. This has led to hardware companies churning out some rather souped up machines that tend to force you to part with your hard earned cash, but it won’t do nuts to improve your gaming skills.
So what if you can eke another 3 more frames per second in Crysis 2? That will not change anything, and your eyes probably will not notice any of the changes, either.
