Nvidia 8400M in a 17" inch notebook? That's a joke.

just means its a pretty crappy gaming system, but if he doesnt game much then fair enough. i was going to get that card, but thought the 8600GT would be better for gaming obviously, as id like to try some stuff on it

well i tried a game that used to run on windows 98se but it refused to run it installed i even tried using compatibility mode and still no joy.
so i tried the newest game i purchased pirates of the caribbean and i could play that on med and it was fine if only i could think of a game to really test it
im getting the feeling this graphics chip isnt as bad as i thought despite being a turbo cache chip.

on a side note im glad rick's back looking smooth lol

haha yep i had to get rick bad. hes a true legend.
it may have turbo cache but it also has 128mb dedicated ram aswell. its a lot better than the integrated crap out there, i just isnt very good for the more demanding games
