ATI HD 4650 performs better by a good margin and its worth to get it instead of 4530

The HD 4670 is better for gaming. While the HD 4650 can be used for gaming, it is kinda like borderline right now between basic gaming and home theater use.

Keep 1 thing in mind while buying HD 4650.
They are available both as GDDR2 model and GDDR3 models.
Get the DDR3 one.
It will perform much better that the one with DDr2.

Out of any of the 4600 series ATi cards I would have to say the 4670 or 4770 would be your best bet and they are only about $5-10 more then the 4650 and additionally if you look at the specs most of the 4670's come with 1GB of GDDR3 and the HIS products tend to out perform the 3850's so it would make for a better choice. I personally went from a 3850 to a 4670 and have had nothing but good times and way better looking effects while gaming, not to mention the HDMI on them is amazing and even though they are a single GPU card they are also still able to render a 330,000 polygon model faster than a FireGL V7350 1GB can using 3D Studio Max Rev 8.1 SP 2 which is more impressive then you could imagine. But anyways as I said take a look at the 4670's or 4770's prior to spending any money on the 4650's, paticularly take a look at what HIS have to offer as they tend to max out the default core and clock speeds and still allow for overclocking if you are into that. Cheers!

The OP is talking about mobility series so mostly there won't be any OC'ng due to heat and also he/she can't choose the card from a manufacture

The "mobility" cards are meant for laptop computers so if you aren't using one you shouldn't be considering those cards.
For a desktop you should get an HD4670 if you don't have much money.

The DDR3 HD4650s disappeared a good while back so recommending one won't help anyone.

Unfortunately DDR3 HD4650s are impossible to find now, new at least. If you are talking about crossfire the HD4650 uses very little power so unless your PSU is terrible it should be fine.
