I need help with integrated graphics
I am looking to buy a laptop for school in the upcoming semester and I had a question about integrated graphics. I would like to use this laptop for schooling and also to play Sims. I am looking into the Toshiba Satellite S50-ABT3N22 Laptop and I was wondering if I needed to add on the 2GB DDR3 NVIDIA ® GeForce® GT 740M with Optimus™ Technology or not. I feel there really isn't a need for this graphics card, but I just wanted to get a clear answer. Any answers help. Thanks in advance!

emdea22 said:What exactly are going to be doing on the laptop? 4gb is enough for games and general browsing if you have a dedicated gpu. Since you're using integrated graphics i'd suggest 6gb, but if you plan on doing some rendering or compiling then maybe 8gb is not a bad choice.
I plan to use this as a college laptop and then Sims and Netflix in my free time. No rendering or compiling or anything like that.
