So I'm planning on buying a laptop with the intention of playing games on it (such as Skyrim, Assassin's Creed III, and Mass Effect 3).
I've never bought a laptop with this in mind before so I really am lost about the different options out there for discrete graphics cards.
Specifically, if a game asks for the following minimum requirements:
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT / 9 / 100 / 200 / 300 / 400 / 500 / 600 series or better
- What do the numbers *after* GT stand for?
- How can I compare a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT card to a NV GeForce 650M or a NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670MX ?? (and what do "M" and "MX" even mean?)
Mobile chips are a bit different. I would think though as long as you aren't out to max out your games that a 670MX should be sufficient. I would take a look at this thread it goes into more about the chip. I would say that the MX is like a gtx and the M is more like a gt.
