He should see a gain in frames, nothing major but surely noticeable. shadow187 a c 130 U Graphics card July 1, 2010 5:31:10 AM That's what I was hoping for.

Look 3 posts above yours. jyjjy a c 377 U Graphics card July 1, 2010 4:12:09 PM Unfortunately the DDR2 really hurts the performance of the HD4650. The DDR3 version would be an alright upgrade but the DDR2 card, while still a bit better than the 8600GT, isn't much of one. shadow187 a c 130 U Graphics card July 1, 2010 4:19:02 PM What if I OC'd it some? Possibly 650 on the core and 475 on the memory? I really want to do this for 'em, but if it won't amount to more than 5%, I won't bother. Best solution jyjjy a c 377 U Graphics card July 1, 2010 4:30:16 PM I do think it should be more than 5%, especially if you OC. shadow187 a c 130 U Graphics card July 1, 2010 4:32:06 PM Alrighty..his res is pretty high, and it'd be nice if he could turn on some more pretty effects.
