Question Which video card is better for a gaming laptop?

Keep in mind both laptops will have no less than 1 gig of ram. One even up to 4 gigs ram.

One of the video cards:

ATI Mobility Radeon, 64-bit video graphics with 32-MB DDR SDRAM for increased color depth and graphics performance

Or:

ATI Mobility Radeon X600 with 64mb(I think)

Looking to find out which would be better and why. Currently, on one of my laptops I have the top vidoe card. It can play games like age of empires3, dark age of camelot, and some others.

Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Actually the second laptop has this video card:
ATI Mobility Radeon X700 video card.

Uh well considering the first one doesn't really give a card name, I'm going to have to say the one with the x700.

x700 is definitely better. ATI hasn't made a laptop card with 32mb of video ram for years.
