trying to find out what graphics card I need to run UDK on Alienware laptop. UDK says need a DX11 and NVIDIA 8000 or higher. alienware has a GT335M, GT425M, GT540M. Do these meet or beat the requirement? Thanks so much!

If you look at the graphics card hierarchy chart-- @

graphics cards are split into categories with similar performing hardware. The cards that you listed are below the requirements, and well below what i'd reccommend.

There is no serious way to game with a mobile PC.

There are "Desktop Replacement" PCs with respectable graphics power, but these shouldn't even be considered laptops because of the size and battery life.

You'll want a 560,570, or 580m. These are slightly better than the desktop 8800 that's required.

Thanks Jamesyboy. Wow - that matrix is a killer. Of course it didn't have the graphics card I am looking at, but your information was very good and helped me to make a decision on how much to spend.
