Windows 7: Nvidia...Intel?

19 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate [Windows Vista Home Premium]

Hmm.. Well You all know how i was having issues with my Desktop's Graphic's Card Driver [nVIDIA GeForce 6200A] and its driver still does it. but what confuses me my Laptop has a NVidia GeForce 8600M GT, and it has the same driver? [i think] it doesnt crash.. lol

I was wondering if my Dell Dekstop's Motherboard Graphics Chip would work with Windows 7 and beable to use Aero?
it is Intel Graphics Media Accelorator 900. Information on the GMA 900

Also is the Intel Driver [if any] for the graphics is Stable and wont crash.

nVIDIA: GeForce FX 5200 or higher

ATI: Radeon 9550 or higher

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit (6.1, Build 7100)

I have this video card:Mobile Intel GM965 Express Chipset Family

In Vista, the graphics sucked, but after I changed to Windows 7, my graphics are very good. Look at these specs of my laptop... THEY CAN PLAY CRYSIS WITH VERY LITTLE LAG!!!

Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 32-Bit (6.1, Build 7000)
System Manufacturer: Sony
System Model: VGN-NR260E
Processor: Intel Pentium Dual CPU T2330 @ 1.60 GHz (2 CPU's), ~1.6GHz
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Direct X Version: Direct X 11
Display: Mobile Intel GM965 Express Chipset Family
Display Adapter Total Memeory: 360 MB
Sound Card: Realtek High Definition Audio

The processor being slow is the main reason for lag in Crysis.
I used to think Nvidia pwns Intel, but I love my Intel card. My dad's laptop has a blu-ray player with an Nvidia card with 1918 MB DISPLAY MEMORY but my card has a higher score for gaming graphics in the performance thing on the games explorer.

Just saying, Intel is not bad... Aero runs too!

Why have I got Intel HD and Nvidia Drivers?

Intel/AMD and nVidia/ATI
I am curious about what people are using and what they think about what they are using. I would like to hear what kind of processor and graphics you are running and why you chose to go with each. I do not want to see people start arguing over why which one is better. I would like to hear...
