is the graphics card 1gb too low to play most games like battlefield 3, max payne 3, diablo 3 etc?

  1. Generally good enough to play most games with medium quality graphics (or a mix of low & medium settings) at 1366x768 resolution.
  2. @junky77 - budget is 1000$.thanks for the great HP option u gave.will browse it and see.

    @jaguarskx -
    thanks for the reply
    Currently i m using a laptop with
    ATI mobility radon HD5470 2 GB
    and i have played max payne3,mass effect 3 , battlefield 3 on it with satisfactory performance(low to medium settings)
    can u suggest if the one in the query will perform better than that?

    Also anyone, what about i5 vs i7 ?
  3. The GT 630m will be a little more powerful than a HD 5470m so you should see an improvement in performance assuming the same graphic settings and the same resolution.

    Generally speaking, an i5 should be enough for games since the vast majority of games only use 2 cores. As for those small percentage of games that can use more than 2 cores, a "QM" model i7 CPU can give you better performance. Only the i7 "QM" CPUs are quad cores. i7 "M" CPUs are dual core CPUs just like an i5 but with higher clockspeed and more cache.
  4. you mean to say even 1 GB GT 630M > 2GB ATI HD5470 :sarcastic:
  5. yes. thanks a lot guys.
    u rock. :)
