It's about as powerful as a 9600M.. maybe even slightly more powerful..

U can run almost any game at lower to mid settings with this chip on a lower res.

Any first generation i5 and a GTX 460M and up will max out games at 1440x900.

The minimum you want to go is a GT 540M but the GTX 460M is the best route.

Use my system as reference. I spent $1,101 on it from Newegg and spent another $45 for another 4GB of ram so $1,146 total for this: Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q892
