Laptop graphics card question Aug. 1, 2008, 2:15 p.m.

We all have to make our final decisions based on a budget.
If the 9300gs is the maximum that your budget allows, it has to work!
It depends on what are you planning to do with it?
Sincerely I don't think you gonna have much fun with this card!
But i passed by, they have a weekend offer for 1200$ for a XPS 1530, 15" 2.1Ghz Core Duo, 4GB of Ram, 8600Gt and 320GB HDD. I wouldn't think twice…

Laptop graphics card question July 30, 2008, 5:28 a.m.

Unfortunatly it i sincreasingly popular to advert mmobile GPUs not with the dedicated RAM (256mb DDR3 for example) , but with the “shared + dedicated” memory. In fact the shared memory is normal ram that mobile GPU can use, under certain conditions.
This leads to impressive figures like 1024 mb (256 dedicated + 768 shared) of Ram for the GPU. So always check for dedicated memory specifications!
The shared memory has no importance for 3d modeling apps. Neither has the famous “Vista turbo cache”, some memory that can be used to re-open applications faster etc.

As in the post before: go for a 8600gt with 256mb DDR3. Check sites like [] []
for specific benchmark results of your graphic cards…
confusing I know, but there is no other way, comparing card by card…
