Some folks over on another forum suggested I ask over here since meant to be pretty knowledgeable and quite frankly I need all the help I can get, the technical side of computers being something I know very little about. Apologies if I missed them on the main site but I just wanted to double check which of the two graphics cards were best, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M or the AMD Radeon HD 7470M? If I'm reading the various sites rite then the NVIDIA is the better of the two by something like 25-30% but just wanted to double check. It's for a laptop and whilst I wouldn't play modern games on it I do like to play some of the older ones. The two choices are basically a Samsung NP-RF711-S07 with the NVIDIA and a HP Pavilion DV7-6C55 with the AMD. Thanks for any help.

the 540m is a lot more powerful. I think more than 40% better.
^+1 I agree with esrever the 540m is the best one of the two. Good luck to you.
