GeForce 9300M GS or RADEON HD 4850?

Post by MrPewp on Fri Nov 05, 2010 4:15 am

So. My laptop came installed with the GeForce 9300M GS, but one day, as I was trying out Final Fantasy XI, I noticed... EVERYTHING LOOKED TERRIBLE. So, I discovered that we had an unused RADEON HD 4850 sitting around in the basement. Well, should I make the change? Will it cause anything to run slower? Will the visuals actually go faster and smoother, or is it a computer thing? AND! Can I switch in between the two graphic cards interchangeably?

Thank You!

Hi, you have to change your Graphic Card to play that game.

I suggest you Radeon HD 4850 if you are gamer Smile

You'll have only +, don't have what to lose..

Also, new question! Can you change a graphics card that has been permanently installed inside a laptop? A friend of mine has a laptop like this, and he wants to play too.

No, you can not change integrated graphic card. Can you give me name of laptop ? If laptop maybe have a slot for 2nd graphic card, he could install it.
