9300M GS 512mb DDR2 VS HD3100 256mb Tags: DDR2 Laptops Last response: November 8, 2008 11:51 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share sciggy November 6, 2008 1:21:45 AM Well as the topic says, which is better? I searched and couldn't find any info on this. I assume that the 9300M GS is better because of the higher ram, but that isn't always the case. The two laptops I'm looking at are http://www.circuitcity.com/ccd/Search.do?c=1&searchType=user&keyword=m305ds4840&searchSection=All&go.x=0&go.y=0 and http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?id=1218012522418&type=product&skuId=9050242 More about : 9300m 512mb ddr2 hd3100 256mb Maziar a c 234 D Laptop November 6, 2008 7:00:10 AM Both perform closely but dont except any good gaming with them. sciggy November 6, 2008 9:17:10 PM I'm hoping for warcraft 3 at decent settings (medium detail, 1280x768 resolution), starcraft 2 at any settings.
