Graphics card for a new gaming laptop

I am a computer novice, but even I can tell that my laptop is pretty bad, and I have decided to get one that I can play some games on.

I found 3 laptops so far (one by Dell, one by Asus, and one by HP) that have the same specs except for the graphics card. The cards are made by different brands, so its hard for me to tell which one is better. I'm hoping one of you can tell me.

- NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M, 1GB
- ATI Mobility Radeon? HD 5470, 1GB
- Nvidia GeForce GT 320M, 1GB

There are a few thoughts on this.

1. Subtract 10 from the Nvidia model number and 100 from the ATI models and use benchmarks from reviews on desktop cards.

2. Find laptop benchmarks and compare.

These are member to member forums but that's my advice on how to compare.

Thanks for response

Okay, thank you. It looks like the 360M is the best, with the 320M at a close second, and then the ATI 5470 way behind.

compared with the above model you have suggested, i 'ld advice you to go for ACER ASPIRE 5740G model .. it has corei5 processor, and ATI 5650 with 1GB GDDR3
4 GB ddr3 ram,

i have been using it, believe me you 'll like it,
crysis warhead runs on high details at resolution of 1280*760.

and its cheaper too. around 800$ and with 900$ u 'll also get core i7 i guess!
