Video Card for Laptop

Just wondering which video cards are better for a notebook? I'm looking at some different HP/Dell notebooks.

Any comments on:
NVidia GeForce GO 6800(256 MB)on Dell
ATI Radeon X300 SE PCI Express (128 MB)on Dell
ATI Mobility Radeon X600 PCI Express (128 or 256)on HP
ATI Radeon Xpress 200M (128) on HP

I would like to play games and edit video.

Not just the card.

The "system" needs to be benchmarked. Over at there are such benchmarks. See if your list has been done.

Just FYI... Video editing does not strain the video card. However, gaming does.
