I’m looking for a new laptop but I don’t know which graphic card is enough for my needs, I’m not expert and need some advice. I know that the best graphic cards for rendering and CAD programs are NVIDIA Quadro and AMD FirePro.

The fact is computers with those graphic cards are so expensive.

Probably those kind of graphic cards are for rendering and animation “gurus” and I wouldn’t able to get their performance.

I use revit and I’m learning 3ds max design. I would like to have good definition rendering but I’m not interested to make animations.

I’ve filtered my search with: Screen 17,3” – i5 2450M or i5250M – 8GB RAM.

I’ve found some laptops with similar configuration but different graphic cards:

Optimus II. 856 euros/708 pounds -i5 2520M (2.50 GHz) -8 GB RAM(1333MHz) -500 GB (5400 rpm) -NVIDIA Geforce GT 555M 2GB

Dell Studio XPS17. 705 euros/582 pounds -i5 2450M (2.50 GHz) -6 GB RAM(1333MHz) -1 TB (7200 rpm) -NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M 3GB. Dedicated.

Dell Vostro Notebook3750. 759 euros/627 pounds -i5 2450M (2.50 GHz) -8 GB RAM -750 GB (7200 rpm) -NVIDIA Geforce GT 525M 1GB.

Lenovo G770. 689 euros/570 pounds -i5 2540M (2.50 GHz) -8 GB RAM -500 GB -AMD Radeon HD 6650M 2GB. Dedicated.

Which of them will be better for my needs? please.
