Hey everyone :) 
I am glad to join here and I have a question regarding one term...
Which one of these cards will be good for light gaming?
I am not asking for anything upgrades or downgrades etc, I just want to know which one will give me the best entertainment.
I was at a electronic store and saw two identical laptops, each one with same spec; however one thing differ, it was the graphic card.
The first one had a Geforce 9200m GS, the second one had HD Radeon Mobility 4530. Both equipped with 512MB dedicated memory expandable to 1790MB shared.
Now I am wondering...
Which one will operate better with lets say Left 4 Dead?
I have one picture from a friend who has one of these laptops using the Geforce 9200m GS.

Geforce 9200m GS settings
Min FPS - 12(Horde and lots of fire)
Max FPS - 47(on walls and looking at the floor or skybox
Average FPS - 36

the 9200GS is geared to more video playback then gaming. I would go with the 4530 which should be slightly better. See the link.

I read, and asking the list is it of how fast or good they are in gaming or video playback?

both
all the cards listed are fine for video playback. The ones higher on the list also give you the benefit of better gaming.

So the 9200 and 4530 will both give you quality video playback but the 4530 will give you better gaming performance then the 9200.

Do you mean by gaming terms or certain games?
I mean I know ATI cards perform better with DX10 games than DX9, which nVidia clearly does; full support on DX9.

....as in the 4530 is a better card then the 9200GS which is a crap card for gaming

the 4530 will perform better in all games, be they on DirectX10 or 9.

Still not 100% convinced, do you have any benchmark charts or fps ratings while testing both cards?

lol and stop wasting people's time
just get the 9200gs, its the card you want

here's Toms hierarchy chart, once again listing the 9200GS at the bottom and the 4530 two levels above it.
no one benchmarks basic laptop video cards.

I couldn't find HD 4530, and I am not wasting anyones time than my own. First of all you can choice to help me out or flame me and etc. Stop complaining over your own choices :( 
If you find it bothersome to help out don't do it then, rather than complaining it to others.
