I have an alienware m18x r1.
I am looking to get a new video card to upgrade for up coming games this year so they'll run better than right now.
I have 16Gb ram and looking to get a gtx 680m 2GB for $450 or an AMD Radeon HD 7970m $450.
What I researched and read is that the 680m is more than enough and quite an upgrade from my current system capabilities. Is it worth the money I plan on gaming high as possible settings.
As in games such as watch dogs and thief.
Any help and knowledge of a good buy will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

Yes it not a bad choice, but if you going to pay $450 for it then you might as well wait a year and buy a new laptop

gpuboss benchmarks are for the desktop card variants.
For the mobile ones 680m is better:

GPU boss not just for desktop I compared the laptop ones and they are exactly 8.8 each. 680 higher in gaming only.
Thank you all for you're help. I greatly appreciate it.
If anyone has anymore information on the two video cards I should know about before buying please let me know. Money is hard to come by for me.
Thanks again.
