I'm reaching the limits of my old Notebook, since it only has a GeForce 630M and I want to use it for a bit of gaming, too. It's kinda sad, because the i7-2670QM still does the job quite well...
I'm thinking about buying a new one, but I'd like to have a nice graphics card that does it's job without beeing too expensive. So what is the graphics card (I prefer Nvidia, but if AMD has something way better I would also consider using it) with the best Price-performance ratio?
- Laptop GPU available in normal sized Notebooks (I don't want a monster, it should still be portable)
- at least 1 HDMI output
- at least 2 outputs in sum, preferable VGA
- able to be used for games on the market right now (not high settings, just playable - my current 630M doesn't even manage 5 FPS for Rise of the Tomb Raider on lowest settings)
- I don't want to spend mroe than 1k€ for the full system (or rather I can't afford T.T), and since I also want an i7 and a good amount of RAM, the GPU itself mustn't be too expensive
If you have suggestions for a full system, this would be nice, too, but the question aims to give me a overview of Graphic Cards which would meet my requirements. Afterwards I'll search for a new Notebook with one of these built in.
I just had a quick look into the comparison site suggested by Adrian, an found the GeForce GTX 775M - this would be, from the performance aspect, top notch. I don'T even know how the price range is, and if this is available in non-gaming-notebooks (meaning normal sized cases), but anyway - this performance would be awesome.
For the lower bound I'd name the GeForce GTX 580M - it shouldn't be much less performance than this, else I don't think buying a new notebook is really worth it.
