    Should I get the Core 2 Duo T5200 at 1.6Ghz along with a 256MB ATI MOBILITY RADEON X1400 HyperMemory video card, or should I get a Core 2 Duo T7200 at 2.0Ghz with the Integrated Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950?

    I wonder tho if i should've held out on the fast processor and got 2gb of ram. When not multi-tasking i kno i would outrun the set-up i was also thinking about which is 1.6ghz core 2 duo and 2 gb of memory. But if we started to use things that bogged down the memory instead of processing, a system with 1.6ghz core 2 duo and 2 gb of ram would outrun my system with 2.0ghz processor and 1gb ram.

    that system looks like it will do what you want, not really big on gaming with a laptop but it should do everything else with ease. The system has enough memory and processor for most games but i am not sure about the graphics card specs. Plus if it is running Vista the memory may not be enough to do gaming either.
