what are the prices for the 6805 and G556e? Where'd you buy them?
See if you can get far cry (or a demo) and compare the fps on that, the 556e will probably pull ahead there because of the higher memory.
Dunno how much overclocking would help...if the card isn't that great, overclocking will help some.
Also, you could try turning off VSYNC if you can, speeds up performance but might cause "tearing" in the graphics, you might...

Emachines 6805 refurb laptop for $1149. It might be a little too expensive, but it can run everything right now and is a great system.
The compaq 3000Z is a pretty good deal.
I would buy it, but I hear that the GeForce 440go is an old card, and not that good...
But hey, it's got an AMD64 processor, which might make up for the lower quality graphics
So does that mean that ALL amd64 2800+'s in laptops are low voltage? I was looking at the one from Ibuypower.com and just wondering about that.
Pretty sure that the dothan lasts longer on battery. I think the amd will get 2.5 - 3 hrs...
