No One Lives Forever.

It's a great game that shows how much further ahead PC FPS has always been than console FPS.

That masterpiece of a game came out the same year that console gamers were obsessing over Perfect Dark XD

why not just buy an adapter and run your desktop gpu through your laptop?

i dunno how to do that but i'd imagine the cpu is the bigger bottleneck than the video. cyri has me pass on video for most older games but fail on processor.

doing a quick google search i found a kit that is around $100.

interesting idea, but i dont think $100 is worth being able to play maybe a couple more games.
