For $120 I can upgrade from integrated graphics to a NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 525M with NVIDIA® Optimus™ Technology with 1GB GDDR3 memory . Will I notice a huge difference between this card and the Intel HD 3000?
Maybe not 'huge' - maybe just 'big' - difference. Intel HD Graphics 3000 reviewNVIDIA GeForce GT 525M review
No gaming benchmarks yet for the GT 525M so I included the GT 425M for comparison. http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/7031/ss154.jpg
