  1. The difference is the graphics memory which is used for textures and rendering. The 1gb is more than enough and the 2 gb is a marketing trick. The 2 will perform exactly the same.

    thank you so much for the information.. my usage is only photohop premiere pro and games like COD and CS GO... so 1 gb should do good right?

    and last question that i wanted to ask was should i go with the IB corei53210 or for the A10-4600 cause i have that option too
  3. If you had a high-end GPU I would say that 2GB would be helpful but a 7670m is not at all high end.

    unfortunately i have budget constraints so i cannot really go with a high end GPU. if you have any laptops that i can get below 700$ then that would be really helpful.

    Also can you please suggest an IB i5 3210 or an A10-4600 ???????

    The A10 is probably better if you are doing photoshop and gaming, the gpu in the A10 can crossfire with the 7670m. I'd say 1 gb is more than enough.
  6. 2GB is useful in SLI/Crossfire because the memory is not doubled like everything else

    but for this card? i just don't get it

    if you are going onboard/integrated video then go AMD A10, if you are going dedicated separate card the i5 with 1GB card
