I'd personally give COD 4 a whirl.

I think with the next generation of graphics cards, Crysis will look better with more antialising, but when you have to play it at lower settings/resolutions to make the game play smooth, it does ruin the experience.

Your friends won't be impressed if its moving at 5fps

3D Mark Vantage...oh boy. I doubt I'll get even 3FPS on my main rig, and I doubt it will run on the laptop...dang!

But nah, show off with 3DMark...they have some sick showoff. When I worked at a PC shop, they used to show 3DMark06 for the screen demos. It's a nice showoff, because clients were attracted to it.
