So I got an alienware M15x in May 2010 and bought it with a GeForce 260M. The performance of the card isn't what I had expected. I'm forced to play games at much lower settings than I would like. I've read some other posts of people seeing degrading performance of the 260M over time, but no one had a solution to in.
So, I'm looking to upgrade my 260M to one of the following (prices are from a sales rep from dell):
ATI 5850 - $279.99
GTX 460M - $384.99
ATI 5730 - $209.99
The price isn't too big of deal - I can afford any of them. While I assume it exists, I couldn't find benchmark scores on the site for laptop cards - anyone have a link (or a recommendation for which card to buy)?
That is extremely overpriced!!!!!! lol
But I think a 5850 would do you good. The GTX 460 probably wouldn't give you much for $100.
