Default How is ATI MR9700

How is the ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 with 128mb RAM? I'm pretty sure it will handle all the games out now, but what about the games that will come out one year from now? This would be coupled with an AMD64 2800+. I want a lptop that will be good for a long time...

Actually, how is this system:http://www.cyberpowersystem.com/high...647500.asp?v=d

It comes with HL2 and a free carrying bag thing and free shipping. Good deal?

That's a pretty cheap price for such a potential notebook.

Yes it will, though I have a Radeon 9800 Pro (the 9700 isn't made any more) and I am getting about 25-140fps in Half Life 2 at 1024x768high quality (0x antialising, 4x antistropic) in water levels (140 max for inside) (doesn't even get any better at 640x480) and I have a pretty good system (check specs below)

Though it will run new games, if you want high settings, its a no no.

A Geforce 6600GT is a best buy for gasmes to last a long time for the mo, and only costs around 130-160 quid ( i wish i waited and got this than my Radeon 9800 pro which i paid the same price for, but a long while ago)

Hope this helps
