heh sounds like you need to get your benchmarking eyes fixed then, all that low fps gaming must have damaged them.
the 5650 is HALF as good as the 9600, so the 5200 has no chance in hell of running dx9 games unless in 640x480 low detail.
I have a fx 5950 on my desktop pc and that thing is brilliant, if i want to run games in 1280 or 1600 high detail, it will do it. Laptop cards wont do that unless its an RTS like war3 or generals, but as long as they can sustain a constant (not dropping when intense scenes come on) the graphics can be turned down for all i care.
Notebooks arent made for gaming its just a really great bonus that it sounds like alot of people are taking for granted and over emphasising how good theirs is to make themselves sound better. Case and point: 3dmarking your laptop? wtf! if it runs the mother nature test in 3dmark03 smooth i will be impressed otherwise if your games run smooth everything is sweet, unless you need a bigger e-penis....
