Default GPU Questions

Hey wats up guys. I'm wondering the graphic power that my gpu really has.
I can't really test it cause all of my games r low end.....(Have a ps3) I think my most graphic intense game is AOE3. I'm now looking into getting some newer games for my laptop because im tired of the ps3's lag every time I want to play one game of cod4/WAW. Also do you guys suggest installing nvidia drivers to make it run faster?
My GPU specs follow:
Nvidia 9500M G 512Mb
PCI Express x16 (2.0)
Nvidia 9300M Integraded GPU
256MB
Another quick question, how do you turn off the 9300M cause both are running at the same time and the 9300M is stealing my memory
Srry bout the long post ty for all the ppl that read the whole thing

This is a laptop computer with two (2) GPUs? I wouldn't begin to know how to disable one of them. In the BIOS perhaps?

I wouldn't say installing Nvidia's drivers would make it run faster necessarily, but at least you'll have the latest updates. You can get them here: Nvidia Driver Downloads. In the Product Series drop down menu, you'll want to select the GeForce 9M Series (Notebooks) to get the drivers you'll need.

Here's a link with a good description of your 9500M performance capabilities: Notebookcheck - Nvidia GeForce 9500M G
