Right, I have recently purchased a new laptop from Asus, only because the specs were so good for its own price, but I have had a rather extensive search for nVidia card laptops and some of those specs were far from satisfactory. the specs for the Laptop is: T7500 CPU (2.2GHz) 2GB DDR2 RAM 200GB HD (I think, i will confirm after i hit home later) ATI HD 2600 512MB with 768MB HyperMemory on top (1280MB total) 14.1' WXGA+ screen (1440*900 resolution) All totalled approx €1000, minus shipping from the country, which would total about €1200. My question is, the other video card I was searching hard for was the nVidia 8600m GT card with 256MB and 768MB TurboCache, for a total of 1024MB. From what I have read, the 8600m card beats the HD 2600 card, but are they really that much of a difference? or would my performance get away with it?
