    I have an intel gma 3100 so same boat but I think they both will run the orange Box ill let you know this weekend,if mine will yours certainly will. Good news is battery life is longer with low level cards like these.

    Funny!
    Yes it's not as fast as a 8600GT or 8800GT or bla bla bla!
    But You can play games on it for sure!

    My Girlfriend has a laptop with X1100 and I can Play on it X-men Legends2 or Marvel Ultimate Alliance! So I think on a 71xx you can play some games to!

    thnx but im asking about the the space of dedicated space i would have if i had 1gb of graphics memory which is dedicated + shared and equals up to 1gb of total space.

    how much exactly, would i have for dedicated .. i think triprift mite be correct but i just want to be 100 % sure ...
