Dude it's not the 5000 or 6000 series that matters, it's the number after that, 5-470, 5-870.

for example the 4870 is better than the 5470.

Anyways, the 5470 can run the game at mainstream down till low settings with a playable frame rate yet that card is not good, it's an entry level card, it's for light gaming and watching HD movies,

Please tell me your system specifications and budget.

Also take into consideration that video card for laptops are slower than their desktop equivalents. For example, the Mobility HD 5850 is roughly as powerful as the desktop HD 5770.

Therefore, the Mobility HD 5470 is less powerful than the desktop HD 5450.

Here's a note, According to tom's charts
a mobile HD5450 is actually faster than a discrete HD 5450......:lol: 



That's like an exception, don't say that, it'll just confuse the guy, we are talking in general, that is a trend in AMD's product line or a mistake.

in short just don't expect grand performance when using regular laptop to play games. sure it will play the game but don't over do things like maxing all the graphical setting while expecting to maintain 60FPS at all time

I hate laptops, they are such scams, regular people don't use desktops any more, they see laptops for the same price and don't see a difference between a desktop other than size.

Urm you are wrong there.The mobility 5850 is as powerful as a 9800GTX .The mobility 5870 and gtx 480m are as powerful as a 5770.

OMG, shut up about the laptops, laptops=***

First of all, the 5770 is MORE powerful than the 9800GTX, so YOU are wrong, what the hell are you saying?

The friggin damn GTX M and high end mobility crap are only available in alienwares and
darn expensive gaming laptops that can equal to the price of the best dekstop, so just say that laptops suck and if you want to game on one,
you would have to spend over $1200 on a laptop that won't even last a year because it can't be upgraded, nor will it be half as powerful as a desktop you can get for that price.

Yeah, laptops suck. Spend the money on a good desktop. The downside is you cannot play at work, the upside is while at work you can look forward to getting home and playing ona powerful PC so you can truly enjoy your games

He didn't say a 9800GTX was better then a 5770, so YOU need to read more, what the hell are you saying?

Some people don't want to lug a desktop around when their on the go, where a laptop is better in the replacement of. Laptops are not a scam, their good for what their ment to do: to be mobile. That being said, I got a cheap laptop because it didn't have a beefy GPU, the sad part is that anything more then a 5470 adds 200$+ on a laptop.

But he did ask about a mobile GPU.
The sad part is how often the OP responds, which is so far none. We might not get a budget, what else he's been looking at, or what exactly he plans to do other then play Arma 2.

arma 2 will run like crap on a 5470 personally I would go no lower than a 5750, even though a 5770 is much better price/performance but even with a 5770, depending on res, you will likely be playing on med if you want playable fps, imo

lol.You just proved yourself wrong.You said in your previous post that the mobility 5850 was as powerful as a 5770 so I said that you were wrong and it is only powerful as a 9800GTX which is way weaker than the 5770 which you just pointed out.BTW who says that laptops are crap for gamng.I own a Alienware M17X with 2 GTX 480M in SLI and they destroy crysis at very high.

They are crap for gaming because unless you have a hell of a lot of spare cash to buy one that can game they are lousy, and even if you have the cash unless you have dire need for the mobility it is far better spent on a Desktop which is upgradable.

I would love to have a gaming laptop, but unless I win the lottery I sadly can never justify such a pricecompared to a decent desktop

yeah either way a 5470 will likely not play arma2 that well if at all, also we don't know what the specs of his laptop are, the 5470 is a mobile chip to my knowledge so we at least know hes working with a laptop, but yeah overall laptops are not ideal for gaming but thats not the point...

yeah and im sure you paid a huge price premium for a machine like that, bottom line not that laptops are crap but on a desktop you could have the same or better performance for a lot less money, A ROTTA MONEY!
