    Let's same a game that I am trying to play has a recommended requirement of a NVIDIA FX 5700 series card - how exactly would that compare to the 320M?

    Is there some kind of table or something that ranks the different set of cards/chips that NVIDIA offers? I browsed the web and came up with nothing.

    Thanks.

    What game are you trying to run? It's usually easier to look up reviews/benchmarks of the GPU itself.

    http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-320M.28701.0.html

    The specs of the GPU are on the top of the article, while the average FPS of a variety of games is on the bottom of the page. Check it out. Hope this helps.

    It should be OK. The FX 5700 seems to be a desktop GPU, but taking age into consideration, I'd say the 320m is around 1.3x slower than the FX 5700.

    EDIT: Oh crap typos messed me up. FX5700 is a 10-year-old lulz. HD 3000 can beat it with a 1080p movie playing.

    Yeah, I assumed that I would be very much ahead of it considering it is recommended for a game that came out 4 or 5 years ago or so.

    Although for more recent games, I have no idea how to compare if it's not something obnoxious like a 4-5+ year gap in between technology - which is why I was looking for some sort of chart.

    I guess I will have to look up solely the 320M, eh?

    Thanks for the posts and links guys.
