Hey, was wondering what sort of mobile gpu would be roughly equivalent to the recommended graphics cards for starcraft 2 which are: 512 MB NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800 GTX or ATI Radeon® HD 3870 or better
thanks!

I have a 4670 with 512 mb gddr3, and i cant run it full details...
but on mid-high settings it runs smooth, and probably runs a bit badly due to Beta version.

My laptop:

Core i5 @ 2.27ghz, 4gb ram, 1gb GTS360m, 500gb 7200rpm HDD, and win 7 64bit runs the game very well at 1366x768 and med - high details. I have high standards for frames as well. So anything in that range or higher would work well for sure.

A Mobility Radeon HD 4850 is almost exactly the same as a GeForce 8800 GTX.
Honestly, those recommendations are so extremely high that shooting for them in a laptop means spending a ton of money.
Even though 3Ball's GPU is under the recommendations, the required's are pretty low, so his GPU works quite well. Another good one would be http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

3Ball, is that the G60jx?
If it is, that one should run Starcraft 2 on highest, I've seen it do Crysis on very high and it was pretty playable.
