Default Gaming Video Cards?

I've been trying to learn more about video-card compatibility and performance, but so far, It's a slow process. I consider myself software, and programming efficient and knowledgeable, while my mother is usually good with hardware. However, neither of us know how to tell a good video card from another. However, I am in need of an emergency for a new laptop. I won't say the extent of the damage, except that as I'm typing now, the only thing keeping the screen propped up, is a table leg. My mother and I are searching for a new laptop for me, before I head off to college, and we've found a few. I'm a big gamer, and would like my laptop to be homework efficient too. I can handle the latter part, but I need help in choosing a video card.

Radeon X700
GeForce GO 6100
Intel Media 950
Radeon XPress 1100
Radeon XPress 200M

The Radeon Xpress 200M is my current laptop's video card. It's not the best, to be polite about it. My mothers laptop, in which I might get handed down, is the X700. The others, are laptops we're looking to replace either my laptop, to be used by me, or replace mymothers, in which I'd get hers (X700).

I know my mother's laptop is better than mine, but I don't know how well compared to others. I think her's is the best...but I don't know. Please Help.

Also, very glad to become a part of the community
