Graphics card for a new laptop.

  1. My Problem is that I am going to buy a laptop (A Toshiba Satellite A105-S2081) from TigerDircet. The site says it has an ATI Radeon® Xpress 200M graphics card.

    My question is. Is this a good card for movies and games?

    Like could it play Guild Wars, Oblivion, AOE 3, BF2, and the big MF *FEAR*

    I dont know anything about laptop graphics cards or what its equvalent to in nVidia cards. ATI is like another language to me :)

    Thanks for the help.

    The 200M is the chipset. It has onboard graphics that are derived from the ATI X300. The X300 is not much of a graphics card. Not sure where this performance falls compared to an X300. Chances are it's lower or about the same.

    Here's some more info on the chipset:
