The main purpose of the laptop would be for playing World of Warcraft and maybe some other games. Obviosly it wouldnt max anything but thats ok.

Also if you know a better laptop (no higher then say $750.00) please tell me !!

thanks guys !

Tried finding some better deals but for your price range, those are really about the best you are going to do. I say go with the 9600GS GPU for the laptop.

Well like I said mainly for playing WoW, but also have a decent ability to play alot of other games, even if not on max settings.

Sorry for double post, but I was reading through other threads and I'm confused.

Whats better? 8600GS, 8600GT, 9600GS, 9600GT, or the ATI 3100 and 3200?

9600m GT>9600m GS>8600m GT>8600m GS>3200>3100.

If Gaming The first link is the best of the two.

Some 8600m GT w/DDR3 could change the order vs the 9600m GS. 8600m have heat related issues so would consider avoiding.
