The problem is I need a laptop for college. And I found a great deal on one that has this card. I don't plan on playing a ton of games. Will it hold up if I play games once in awhile?

 

Is there a big difference betwenn a 128MB NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS and a 256MB NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT?

 

Oh hell yeah! Shadowrun actually requires 256mb to be played with most of the settings that are on on 360. If you don't want AA and play at a lower res with worse shading and stuff, all the more power too ya. It isn't something to spend too much money on, you can always upgrade down the road once something like that becomes much cheaper.

The graphics could use an upgrade, and the processor is probably good, but it never hurts to upgrade over 2 ghz.

Well, I'm sort of doing that now. Each game is linked to the achievement list for the game, so when the Gears achievements for PC are released, I would think they will be in a separate list since the 1250 cap has been hit for the normal game, so I will just link to the new list.
