Its integrated anything is better than that I think something like a Nvidia 6200 is similar. A 6200 would still be better as most graphics cards will having dedicated ram and not using system resources.

I don't think so, baronvongogo. The 6100/6150 chipsets run circles around Intel's graphics, and they are integrated as well.

yes I do remember a review on integrated graphics might have been on tomshardware, I was basing it on pixel pipelines and core speed for a comparable graphics card. I never thought to compare it with a other integrated chipset.

well Intel intergrated would be on the bottom of the list.
The Best would be ATI x1250 which is like a x700 and Nvdia Geforce 7050 which is pretty much the same.

What about the 8700m GT? Wouldn't that be the best?

Oh my bad forgot GMA 950 was for laptops and macs.
8700m GT? y not got the power of a 8600GTS or 7600GT.

If your going with best y dont u use a SLI notebook for double the gpu power.
