Laptop graphic card

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I was thinking of buying a laptop/dtr, since I really need a computer to use at home/office that is both small and powerful.

I've seen that around 1200€ there aren't a lot of choices, and I can't spend more than this. What kind of graphic card would be enough to play games such as NFS MostWanted, C&C Genrals, Warcraft III at 1024* medium details?


P.S.The CPU will be a turion (because of the 64 bit thing, I find it usefull) so no intel media accelerators and the ram at least 512Mb.

There are two types of A64 laptops on the market currently. They have Turions as the mainstream A64 (but socket 754), and custom laptops coming with socket 939 processors (woohoo).

What does your budget correlate to in USD?

***EDIT

The reason I ask is the availability of good graphics cards in the Turion series laptops. The 939 laptops have a larger range and a higher peak of video options (7800go for example)

In us dollars it's kinda the same thing, I suppose the price range is about 1200 -1400 USD.
A 939 DTR would be nice too, but something with a 7800GO is a bit out of my league. I was thinking about something like 6600GO, maybe x700GO, but I don't know how good they are. The integrated cards like Xpress200 or nForce6150 would keep up?

I believe the nforce6510 and xpress200 are chipsets rather than integrated graphics. Typically an xpress200 will have the equivalent to an X300 for an integrated card.

1200-1400 should be able to get you into the 939 laptops with decent video cards. A 6600Go ought to handle those games. You hear they offer SLI in laptops now? (yikes!)

Yep, they're chipsets, but I meant the integrated gfx card in them. Btw I've seen an anounce for a sli laptop with dual 7800go, that weights a mere 15 lbs (I suppose this is around 7.5 kilos) The concept of mobility is heavily chalenged , but hey, you can play BF2 in eye candy mode at work, this has to be good for some folks out there.
