GPU comparison. What do you think?Follow

I normally use notebookcheck.net to compare the GPUs and CPUs that I am looking on purchasing but they don't actually tell me how they'd run on MMOs (or at least ones that I recognize). After reading a graphics card post on here seeing that the individual had 1gb of memory on it and still had problems with WoW running, I figured Id check with you all to see what would run WoW, FFXI and perhaps some of the newer MMOs coming out this year and still run well on AT LEAST medium graphics settings (even in large raids and such but im willing to lower them in order to play if its fast enough). So here it goes. Please be honest with what you think. I suppose rating them from 1-4 would be great (4 being the worst and 1 being the best). Add any commentary you like.

I know very very little about laptop gpus. That said, I can't really understand why anyone would play graphics intensive games one one. I realize you *can*, but unless you have no other option and the laptop is your only PC I'm not sure why one *would*.

I completely agree with you. It simply makes more sense to play any game on a desktop. My life is constantly in a state of travel. Quite literally, the only time Im home is while Im sleeping. So it really made no sense for me to buy a desktop when I have no time to use it, as much as I would GREATLY prefer to use one. My budget is very limited but still Ive tried to price a desktop that would let me run the games I currently want and a laptop that was lower in price in order to accommodate my requirements. I have been unsuccessful in these attempts because the sum total of both of these items equals roughly the price of a decent/good laptop. In addition, my ultimate goal is to have the laptop for recording (music and music notation programs as well as video editing). So the laptop has to perform better than average. Ideally, a Mac would suit this well. But they're too expensive. So...in a word, Im kind of screwed.
