GeForce 8400M vs. GeForce Go 7600 Which is better
Hey Everyone,

Im just curious which video card would be better for running new video games like Gears of War and Unreal Tournament 3. The GeForce 8400m or the GeForce Go 7600. Im buying a new laptop and I want it to be able to play some games and these are the best cards I can choose from between the two laptops im looking at. It isnt specifically for games, I just want it to be able to run them if I do want to play. Just let me know which card you guys think is better for what im looking for. Thanks.

Last I heard, the 8400 was $h!t. I know the 7600 is a solid mid range card.

well the 8400 had DX 10 and can go back words to DX 9 and DX 10 but the 8400 doesnt perfoman close to a 7600 in speed, the 7600 is DX9 only so it cant run DX10. so if your not looking at playing DX10 games yet the 7600 is the best.

7600 is better regardless of DX support, as 8400 will be too slow to run DX10 stuff anyway.

I disagree. I have an 8400M GT and (except for some driver-related problems I'm still trying to solve) the DX10 games I tried worked great.

Bioshock for example runs completely smooth with settings on High and 800 x 600 resolution (really showing better effects than the Xbox 360 version) or on Medium at 1024 x 768.

The High settings really show some impressive features like the shadow and lighting effects.

Maybe you may think 800 x 600 as an extremely low resolution, but on my 15,4" laptop screen that is more than enough to see well and play well.
