Having one of those in a laptop is crazy.... the battery power will drain fast and it will heat up quick too

The Nivida Geforce 6800 will be much better than the 9600/9700 Radeon series as these cards are older.
So the Geforce is the best choice trust me!

Most people use laptops as replacements for desktops though as they take up less space, and can be just as powerful nowadays. They don't have to be portable, though it helps

Well haveing one of those in the first place would make it logical to put it in a desktop replacement notebook.

Reply from a new thread started by Melonn here in the computer forums when he could have carried it on here. SO I will for Melonn:

The Geforce 5700 128mb will be better than the 9600/9700 I would assume...
