*How to Ask for Advice about Choosing a New GPU*

Hi i'm currently trying to choose a laptop that i can bring to college and also use to game on so i dont have to bring my desktop with me, i want my laptop to either be around the same or better than my desktop but i have been out of touch with the pc community for a while so im not in touch with new gpus or cpus, im running an amd athon ll x4 oc'd, an nvidia 9800 gt 512 mb oc'd and 4 gigs of ddr2 667 RAM, im just scared of ending up witha laptop thats worse than my desktop and not able to play anything, i found laptops with 4-8 gigs of ddr3, but the only thing im hesitant on is the whole i5/i7 vs a8/a10, and mixing and matching with mobile gpus, im able to play most games on ultra with my current setup but only with around 25-40 frames, any help appreciated.
