i originally ordered my laptop with the radeon 9600 however at the time there were shortages of them and the only way i was going to get my laptop in time for my holiday was to get the 64mb geforce 5200 put it in instead.
anyway in a month or so when i come back i will be looking at upgrading the card to the 128mb radeon 9600 most likely.. will i *need* to do this mod? id rather not if i dont have to.. does the 128mb geforce 5650 have the same prob?
for the time being do you reckon id notice the difference between the 64mb 5200 and the radeon 9600 just doing light gaming, watching dvd's and browsing?
oh.. and do you think the 5650/9600 will be the last cards supported by the inspiron 8600 or is it worth waiting and see if they bring out higher cards that will fit in the 8600?
