i currently have the ATI Radeon but im thinking about getting a new laptop which has a 128mb GEForce 8400M GS on it. im planning on using it for AfterEffects Production. dont really have any interest in gaming. can someone let me know which card is better and if i can expect any significant change in render speed? at the moment i have a 2ghz dual core processor and 3gb ram but rendering is a nightmare. the new one will have 2.2ghz dual core and 4gb ram as well as the 8400m gs graphics card.
