Default Which video card is better?

As the topic suggests I'm divided on two video cards, them being the 9600M GS and the Radeon 3650 Mobility. Anyone have any experience with these cards or have heard comments about these cards on whether or not one is better than the other? I'm finding mixed reviews about both.

The 9600GS looks to be a tad faster. Check out this chart:

The 9600 is #38, the 3850 is #40.

Considering the little Performance difference,it all boils down to price.

If your going to be gaming on this notebook then I suggest saving your money and nearer christmas find another, maybe like a Mobility Radeon HD 3870. Depends which games you want to play really.

Its not really an ATi vs nVIDIA argument, its just determining, which card is better, when comparing two comparable cards it can only be ATi or nVIDIA there aren't any competitors and chances are, if you're looking at comparable cards you won't be comparing two cards from the same company.

Plus, its AMD now.

Honestly, I know that the Mobility Radeon is cheaper than Nvidia in manufacturing. My thoughts goes to ATI.
