  1. Hello and welcome to the forums
    5470M is fine;however,if you want to play games,then go with 5650M.It's significantly faster.
    As for the CPU,unless the price difference is under $40,go for the faster one.Because the difference between them isn't noticeable.
  2. 5470 is crap, you should choose 5650 more stream units up to 24 multi sample, hdr rendering with 128 bit
  3. to answer the original posted question, memory determines how much information the card can process and keep in its workload i.e. how much of your show or movie can be buffered before having to stop again or in gaming, how much eye candy that can be displayed on the screen, the more AA the more memory you use, so it depends on what your needs are, if you are only watching tv then go with the 5470 its cheaper, also your processor wont see much of a boost from 2,53 to 2,66, the performance increase will be unoticeable
