    I need a new laptop, needs to be able to play bf2. I was looking at the dell e1705 and the hp zd8000. For about the same price the hp has a 3.0gz p4 but only a x600 gcard. The dell only has a 1.66 gz duo but a 7800 gcard, which is gonna be better? Thanks

    That's what I figured I just didn't know how much of a difference there was between the x600 and the 7800. My experience has been that you can get by with a slower processor if you've got a nice gc and lots of ram.

    It isn't a slower processer.

    The Pentium M 1.6-1.8 GHz is ~P4 3.0 GHz

    So definately go with the 7800:bigthumb:

    Oh, well that's interesting to know. It would be nice if they rated them all the same so as to not be so confusing!:)
