    Fx1500M = Geforce Go 7900GS. =Good performance. You just need the appropriate drivers.

    Itll Perform the same. The 8600 is not that much of an upgrade from the 7900GS

    Its still a powerful card for gaming.

    Its pretty much equivalent to a 8600M GT in overall performance... although it can handle higher resolutions better... with the 256-bit mem interface.

    You better be getting a deal better than $700, since a Vostro 1500 with 8600M GT is about $700 now. :)

    And yes you should change the ATA/IDE HDD to a larger one if you are to get it.

    it wont really outperform the 8600M GT in most tests.

    They are comparable.... however the 8600M GT uses less power and produces less heat. ;)

    It won`t beat the 7900 GS,since that is still a 256bit card so at a higher resolution,it will still be better.
    But the 8600M GT is a newer card,more proven and has enough potential to play today`s games in moderate resolutions.
    Nowhere near what I`d call an upgrade though.
    An upgrade would be at least the 8700M GT in terms of performance.

    i still cant find any gaming benchmarks on this card yet :( but if i can get both the the 8600m gt & the Quadro FX 1500M at the same price (regardless of the laptop), which one do you guys think is the bang for the buck?

    8600M GT = better overclocker. And the possibility of getting a physX capable rendering with just a software upgrade.
    Just make sure the 8600M GT is DDR3 to have better perfomance!
