Default GeForce 8600M GT versus Mobility Radeon X1400

Which video card has the best performance? I'm thinking about upgrading from my old dell (which has the x1400) to this - ASUS G Series G1S-A1 NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo T7500(2.20GHz) 15.4" Wide SXGA+ 2GB DDR2 667 160GB 5400rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT - Retail

Quick Googling revealed the 8600M GT beats the ATI Mobility X1600, so it's definitely better than your current X1400 - and by a fair margin it seems.

i will help you out here

Notebookcheck: Mobile Graphics Cards - Benchmark List

the 8600M gt is at number 26 and the Ati Radeon x1400 is at 46.

So with that being said the 8600M gt is the way to go.

I hardly noticed any slow downs playing that fear demo, there was a point where I lagged to **** but that was because of the hard drive being a bit slow...
