I think you do want a better GPU than the 630 for high end gaming. Its a mid-to-low end card.

In order for us to provide good advice, you should post your other system specs, including monitor resolution and the approximate price you are willing to spend.

Edit: Also what kind of gaming?

High end gaming you need at least (On the low end) a GTX 660 TI, or a 7850. On the high end, 670/680 GTX, or 7950/7970.

Ya gotta' edit your post, tell us your specs, most importantly your PSU watts. P.S. The 630 AND 650 are nowhere close to high end. My GTX 680 is :p 

I would maybe double the price and get a GTX 650, 650 ti, 560, 550 ti, 560 ti. Any of the cards will be par and last you a good year. As for AMD, ask someone else, I admit I have much fanboism for Nvidia, specifically EVGA.

Actually i am about to buy a laptop in which gtx630m >x650m options are available. So i was asking if these gpu will be able to give me the high end gaming performance. Can you please suggest any laptops within the price range of 80,000 INR.

Laptops are a completely different ballgame. Disregard all advice above. The 650m is not all the same as full size video cards we thought you were talking about.

This European site does below does benchmarking of mobile graphics -- you should be able to look at the charts there to compare (and maybe even find your laptop model)

ok so according to your budget i have selected 2 gaming laptops from flipkart.com
http://www.flipkart.com/dell-new-inspiron-15r-se-laptop...
this one is a dell and the specs are pretty good for the price. this model has better graphics . it has radeon 7730m and 3rd gen i7

and this one
http://www.flipkart.com/lenovo-z580-59-339355-laptop-3r...
its a lenovo and just as good but the graphics is lower a gt 630m
so i recommend the dell model for you. it will be a good choice and its cheaper than your budget limit too :wahoo:

If I purchase the dell laptop which you recomended, will I be able to play heavy gamea like Battlefield 3 , Crysis 2 i high graphics not on the ultra config. Also will I be able to play any new game even in low graphics?

Thanks for your advice
