need help with new card please


Recommended Posts

hi all,

had a toshiba p20-801 messed up sent it back to get fixed through home insurance. well back and forth between me and them for 4 months, they now say it is beyond repair and have offered me a new laptop.

here is my problem the card in my old one was a 128mb nvidia geforcefx go 5700 the new one is a ati x600 256mb. i have never used an ati card can someone tell me if this is equal or better then my old one. and i can't find drivers for it if anyone knows where. all so the old laptop had a p4 3.20ghz and the new one has pentium m 1.7X , is this any good.

thankyou for your time. the new one comes monday. hope it works better lol

Graphics card is better, I can say processor is better as well - nearly equal if not just a little less. Technology-wise its way better, less power consumption less heat generation etc.

For GPU you probably modded need drivers for ATI card or use OEM's driver. With a small google-ing I'm sure you can find them easily.

ty for the fast reply.

that is good to know. i play a lot of new games and was not sure if it would handle them.

i will try oem's and have a look around google.

thanks again

Tool for modding ATI drivers, just get desktop catalyst and the tool and off you go.

Also the first page you find when you search for "mobility mod" on google.
