So I can't run fallout 4. Everything was fine until I got into the city its self and the demand on my computer is too much. I can't walk more than a block into the outskirts of the city without my frames dropping to the single digits and anywhere past the red rocket outside of sanctuary my frames slowly drop as I near any large group of buildings.

What I don't know is if I should just sell my current rig and get a new one, or upgrade this one so i' asking you guys. heres my specs:

Nividia GTX 880m
http://www.geforce.com/hardware/notebook-gpus/geforce-gtx-880m/specifications

Intel Core I7-4710MQ 2.50 GHz
http://www.cnet.com/products/intel-core-i7-4710mq-2-5-ghz-processor-mobile/specs/

16GB gaming ram, might be ripjaw, don't remember.

64 bit windows 8.1

1TB hard drive, like 330 gigs free. not solid state.


yes yes I know, dirty laptop scrub but at the time I got this I was living between 5 different places so it was kinda needed.

F/O 4 min/rec specs.

From what I have been seeing posted on other forums, there seems to be more severe framerate issues with the Nvidia mobile GPU based computers than gaming desktops. I have had zero problems with the game but I haven't been to Diamond City. So far my R9 290 is running the game on ultra just fine.

Only thing that stands out to me is the CPU and the 2.5 GHz, recommendations are 2.8 minimum for an Intel and 3.5 recommended. Either OC or upgrade I guess? Everything other than the CPU looks fine (which has me hoping it's only a CPU problem, since all my gear is the same or worse except for a 3.4 GHz i7 and I'm gonna be sad if I can't run FO4).

880m is not terrible for a laptop and the CPU is also not terrible if they actually use all the cores (which they may not).  Buy a desktop?
