How much better is Nvidia 260M GTX over 230M

I'm curious how much better in performance a Nvidia 260m GTX is over a 230M? I'm looking at laptops and am torn between the HP dv6t Quad Edition and the Asus G51J-A1. They have similar specs with the exception of the video (the Asus is better). The cost for the Asus is much more than the HP. I'm not a gamer but I do want a good GPU. Advice and thoughts? Also, for comparison my desktop currently has an Nvidia 8800GT.

  1. Short:GTX 260M performs way better than GT 230M.
    GTX 260M has 112SPs like a desktop 8800GT,so the performance is pretty much the same
  2. Is it worth a $900 price difference between an HPdv6t and Asus G51J-A1? The only differences I see are screen, extra hard drive, and video card.
  3. If you are gaming yes,because GTX 260M destroys a GT 230M in gaming

    Hi Mikey,

    Did you say $900 ? On the online website prices, the HP dv6 2170 15inch is less than USD 1500 and asus g51j is around the same too. Isnt this correct ?
