    Also, though not a complete list where every GPU has been tested, there's a Laptop GPU vs Gaming chart here >>> http://www.notebookcheck.net/Computer-Games-on-Laptop-Graphic-Cards.13849.0.html

    Has such games as Crysis, FEAR 2, Metro 2033, Half Life 2

    It's data you will need to make a wise choice.
