I've looked at benchmarks for both and I'm confused.
I'm going to be running several games on the lappy, but which GPU should I choose? Both are 128Mb by the way, and there's a chance I could get a Go 6600 PCI-E instead of AGP or whatever standard notebook GPU's use.
The 6600 is a vanilla 6600 - not a GT or an Ultra, just plain 6600.
The lappy will have 1024MB DDR (maybe DDR2/3, can't remember).
I'd possibly be playing, at some time or another, stuff like:
Rome Total War
Rollercoaster Tycoon 3
Other games including FreeCiv
I'd also be coding (maybe some 3D stuff), listening to music, watching DVD's, the usual stuff. The above mentioned games run fine on my FX5200 256Mb desktop card (I've only got Total War and Generals from that list, Rome can get a bit jittery during large battles and online, but mostly perfectly playable)
My big question: How will either of these cards cope with BF2?
It'll most probably be the most demanding game my lappy will run.
I can run BF2 on my crappy 5200 with most settings on low, and I get 21fps on average, but it's got a P4 3.2GHZ HTT and 512MB DDR.
Obviously these cards are better than that.
Once I've chosen a GPU, I can finally buy a laptop. So which should I choose?
Very sorry for the near constant new threads, I really am. I'll stop once I can draw a conclusion from this
