I see that too many people who don't have any idea of GPU performance and still talk, so i can give you a better opinion. I possess an Asus K50IE with T4400, 4Gb DDR3, G310M 512Mb DDR3 PCI-E, 320Gb Seagate Momentus, and my windows Experience Index (x64) looks like that: CPU/memory calculations 5.7/5.7, desktop performance for windows aero 4.9, gaming graphics 6.0, disk performance 5.8. Its worthy to buy a laptop equiped with g310m. Is cheap, and performance is very good, especially if you use latest nVidia drivers (not Asus) and nVidiaPerformance. You can overclock your PC, upgrading mainboards reference FSB from 200 to 221 (cpu frequency will be 2.48/core; 2.2 is stock clock), graphic card (i use overclock from stock settings to GPU 686Mhz, Gmemory 750(and can be overclocked much more but i prefere to be cautious, shader clock 1551 Mhz). The windows Experience index is measured without overclock, i use higher clocks just in gaming. The results : I PLAY SMOOTH&FAST RISEN 1366X768 TEXTURE QUALITY/VEGETATION =HIGH, ANISOTROPIC FILTERING X8 (RUNS THE SAME X16 BUT I DON'T LIKE IT), RANGE OF VIEW =MEDIUM, SHADER QUALITY =HIGH, SHADOW QUALITY=LOW. ALSO I CAN PLAY SMOOTHLY ARMA 2 OPERATION ARROWHEAD ON NORMAL (1366X768), DRAGON AGE ORIGINS 1366X768 VERY HIGH, ANISOTROPIC X16 (BUT I PREFERE X8), WORLD IN CONFLICT 1366X768 ON HIGH. Soon i will record some screenshots from games with all details and i will post on UTube, so everyone who have doubts about gaming performance of this laptop can watch.
