  1. OK, so guys im not a techy so i know nothing about computers,

    the problem im having is i want a laptop which can play decent games (not the latest but new enough), ive found 2 Similar laptops with similar specs, the main difference is the graphics card, one uses a nividia 9600M GT 1GB card and the other uses ATI Radeon HD 4570 512 MB.

    To complicate things the one with the ATI graphics also has a slightly higher cocked CPU – so im stuck guys which laptop would give me better gaming performance out of these two.

    Here are the laptops:



    here is the data I for the nividia card


    and here is info on the ATI card:


    ive also noticed that the ATI card supports direct X 10.1 and pixel shader 4.1 and the nividia card supports direct X 10 and pixel shader 4.0 what ever that is.

    none of the above info really makes any sense for me so if anyone here can please help me ill be very grateful.

    Thanks in advance

    The 9600M GT should be a better option. However, neither card has enough horsepower for high res gaming.
