    Looking to get a desktop replacement laptop and whilst I dont want it to be the perfect gaming machine I would want it to be able to handle its own for gaming.

    I have tried searching the net but cant find any sites giving ratings for graphics cards for notebooks - I have looked at http://www.tomshardware.com/mobile/index.html (and the graphics card section) but they dont seem to rate lappy cards - anyone know of a reliable site giving 'rankings' for the different mobile graphics cards?

    Well depends on your budget.

    You can get x800 cards for laptops now, although a 9700pro would be a good compromise of cost/performance.

    I have been looking at a number of systems and they seem to come with either.....

    ATI MOBILITY RADEON X300 video controller with 128MB of DDR video memory
    ATI RADEON Xpress 200M IGP with 128MB
    NVIDIA Geforce Go 6800 with 256MB of DDR video memory
    NVIDIA GeForce Go 6200 with TurboCache™ supporting 128MB

    Whilst I would guess the 6800 is better than the 6200 as they appear to be direct comparisons I am not sure how either ATI cards compare to each other or the NVidia ones and if the 6200 will be good enough and not worth spending the extra on the 6800

    The 6800 is the only one in that list that would be usefull for playing games well.

    The 6200/x300 are very budget cards and will struggle against any new games.

    Not sure about the xpress 200m bu would assume another nudget option
