I want to buy a laptop and I dont know much about graphics cards. They are NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200. The NVIDIA has 1GB video memory and ATI has up to 3195MB available.

A GT 330M is a slightly underclocked GT 220 which isnt a very good card, but the HD 4200 is an IGP not a discrete card and has to rely on sharing system memory. The GT330M wont perform great but it will do quite a bit better than the HD 4200 so if they are the same price get the GT330M.

If you want to be able to play games at reasonable settings you should be looking for a GTS250M or higher or a Mobility HD 48xx card, while the GTS250M seems like it should be worse than the GT330M because its a lower number it will actually blow it out of the water.

I am using it for gaming and the 330M is 100$ more thab the ATI. But how much would a laptop be with that kind of graphics card in it.
