My laptop has a 6490m radeon graphics card. I'm thinking about getting a desktop on christmas. The problem is, I can't find any desktop graphics card that are comparing to the 6490m. What desktop graphics card is comparable so I know which other cards may be better?
I've been looking at the desktop radeon 7750 and 7850. Are those better than my laptops 6490m?
Heres how AMD graphics cards work.. The first number 5xxx,6xxx,7xxx, just tells you what generation they are and how new they are. the next 3 numbers are their performance, so your GPU for your laptop is SUPER low. so basically if your running a 6490, a 6550 would be better (just random numbers). look at 7770's and up if you wanna play games
but yea, any graphics card you get over $20 will be better than a 6490. If you dont even plan on gaming. You most likely wont even need a GPU because most motherboards and many CPU's have them built if your just going to use the desktop for everyday use.
