Hello,

All things being equal, which graphics should I choose for the HP TouchSmart all in one computer? The 2GB Radeon HD 6550A ($30) or 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M ($50)?

System has 8Gb DDR3 ram, and
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600 quad-core processor with Turbo-Boost [up to 3.8GHz, 8MB cache]

I want to be able to play SecondLife which is a 3D Virtual World "game."

The Specs from NotebookCheck.net:

I do not know which one is better. Please advise.

Thanks~!

The intel is probably going to perform a little bit better, although it is a close call between those cards and you probably won't notice much of a difference.

Thank you Daniel! Do you think the 2GB Radeon HD 6550A will play Second Life though? I actually dropped down to the i5 quad core so as to bundle everything I wanted in my budget.... just pricing things right now and need to make sure it will run Second Life in a way that I can enjoy it... being able to have at least midrange graphics setup.

Oh, I found the Second Life requirements page. Not sure how this video card fits into the selection since it is not listed exactly.... any ideas?


The high-end choices I have with the HP Touchscreen:
2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M
or
2GB Radeon HD 6550A

Oh geez, I just realized I said "The Intel card" lol, not enough coffee earlier, I meant the nVidia card.

Both cards are beyond good enough to play that game :)
