So an ASUS notebook I'm looking at has a GeForce 7300 chipset in it. Was wondering if this would be sufficient enough for Photoshop and the occasional game (oldish games, like Counterstrike Source, BF1942, and Diablo 2).

The rest of the specs are quite nice for the price.

The 7300GO will play CS: Source and most any other current game decently. And even an integrated card (like the one on my notebook; Intel Extreme Graphics 2) will run photoshop fine.

It should be fine for older games like BF1942 and similar ones.

Good stuff. Thanks..

Compare that to a x1700? A huge difference?

In theory, the x1700 ought to be a decent click faster.

Given these two laptops, which one would be the ideal purchase.

http://www.jw.com.au/products_closeup.asp?part=ASUS&part_no=2807&index=Notebook+Computers&subindex=ASUS - having a slower processor, smaller drive, more expensive. Though has a x1700

or...

http://www.jw.com.au/products_closeup.asp?part=ASUS&part_no=2806&index=Notebook+Computers&subindex=ASUS - this, having the quicker processor, larger hard-drive, cheaper, newer model. Though the 7300.

I think it would depend on your primary purpose for using the laptop. Your first post seems to suggest gaming as a secondary function, so I'd be inclined to go with the second choice (better processor/larger HDD). The 7300, as mentioned before, should do fine for occasional gaming. The fact that it's also cheaper is just a bonus.

Yeah good point.

Gaming is the second priority (if that) for the Notebook. I've got an Xbox 360, so I'll be gaming on that. But as long as they can play the odd Source match, then I'm happy with that.

Second one seems the better choice for me. With the extra dough I save I might consider chucking an extra 1 gb of memory in it.

Thanks Ob. Matt and Stat.

I own a notebook (an ASUS one too, as a matter of fact) that has the Go! 7300. It can handle Source games fairly well, so no worries there. What I would warn you about, however, is durability. It's been just over a month since I've had my ASUS and it's already on its way back to the repair centre due to a defective motherboard. Could just be bad luck I guess, but even so it just feels too flimsy for everyday use 'on the go'. Don't get me wrong, they're great little machines (when they work, heh), just...don't manhandle them in any way, unless you want to have to deal with ASUS' support centre which, contrary to their slogan is neither "Rock Solid" nor "Heart Touching"...
