I am buying a laptop and I want one with the best graphics card, but not an insanely expensive one
my options are:
Dual 8700M GT
Dual 8600M GT
I can get the 9500M GS laptop for about $800 less with same specs as the others so keep that in mind. I would just like to know how they compare. If I am going to spend the full $2000 on a laptop i might as well get the best graphics card.
The 8800M GTX is more than twice, in some cases probably more than three times, as fast as any of the others.
edit: If you really want to game on a laptop there is no way around the 8800M GTX right now. Make sure to see if the Laptop manufacturer offers regular driver updates as those can be a real hassle. Two friends of mine have gaming laptops (one with a 8800M GTX and one with a 8800M GTS). One is from HP and the other one from Nexoc and both companies are horrible at keeping their drivers up to date. If you are lucky you'll get an updated driver twice during the live cycle of that laptop.
