Hi im planning to buy a laptop and im confused if i should combine a SB i5 2.5Ghz or a IB i5 2.5 Ghz with a GT 630M or AMD HD 7670M

my main usage is for Photoshop and Premiere pro (light video editing 10-15 min videos) and i play games like COD, CS-GO but if i have a good GPU and affordable then i might consider going for a better one. but leaving that aside, for the above mentioned needs, would a 1GB card suffice or i need a 2 GB 7670M

Please help me choose the correct processor and the right graphic card that would go with it.

Go with the IB CPU, and the GPUs are about the same (with a *very slight* lead going to the 7670m) UNLESS you are getting the 144 shader version of the 630m, which will be better than the 7670m.

And with those older-tech graphics chips, 2GB of RAM won't make a difference vs. 1GB. Radeon 77XXm and higher or Kepler-based GPUs and high-end Fermi GPUs can benefit from 2GB.

im sorry to have confused you but i didnt mean 2GB of RAM... i meant to say that there are 2 variants available for the 7670M... you get a 1GB for 50$ while a 2GB for 75$.. does that make any difference?

thank you so much for your knowledge

:hello:  this might be out of the context but would A10-4600 be better than the IB i5-3210 ?
