Nvs120m is a G72 core,same as quadro 350m,geforce 73/7400,nvs110m
They have variances in GPU i.d. clock speeds and memory type/amount but all have 4 pixel,3 vertex,64bit membus.
Fastest configuration is the XPS1210 7400go with 64mb of GDDR3 memory,all the others have more [whats the point?] onboard memory but is DDR2 type meaning limited memory clockspeeds.
Your 6800go is twice as powerful @12 pixel,8 vertex,256bit membus,
73/7400 is bottom end of 7 series,6800 was second to top of 6 series after 6800ultra.
You won't be able to have anywhere the resolution or quality of your 6800go gaming wise,but you will have twice the battery life...if thats a factor.
I game on mine all the time,there's 4 games I have found barely playable [oblivion,GRAW,double agent and the worst,R6vegas]but the rest of the newer games play pretty well at lowered resolution and good quality,even STALKER after the patch and finally finding a driver to fix the trippy sky artifacting [97.73] and of course static lighting instead of dynamic [or dx8]
Still looks good though.
