    So im planning on getting a sony F or E with an i5-520 and one of these graphics cards with 1GB dedicated.

    So my question is which is better?

    I know the HD5650 has a higher benchmark score than the GT330M.

    Hows the gaming on these GPUs? (assassins creed2, splinter cell conviction, mass effect? games like these)


    gonna get 4GB of RAM.

    Thanks Guys

    BTW these are mobile GPU and CPU (Laptops)

    Can't imagine either are stellar but in laptop terms the HD5650 should be quite nice and as you say it does score higher on benchies. The games mentioned don't seem to be the most demanding so, correct me if i am wrong, is there a price difference between the two chips?

    Each 5650 based notebook can come with a range of core frequencies and memory types and speeds.
