      Nvidia’s GeForce model 8800 GTS Mobile graphics card came in the Gateway laptop I purchased and have gotten to use for a while now. As any enthusiastic gamer will be aware, and even those with limited PC-gaming experience, the graphics card is the key element in playing any game enjoyably.

      The ‘specs’ offered by the 8800 GTS Mobile are quite slightly above-average, given its price-range, but nothing extravagant with DDR3 memory of about 512 MB.

      This is


      one story, however, of the little engine that could.

      Most office PCs operate with an ‘integrated’ graphics card, which are typically lower quality, and an upgrade to a card like this shows immediate results.

      The first game I played using this graphics card was Call of Duty 4, Modern Warfare, and was instantly pleased with the results.

      The graphics ran smoothly on the ‘high’ setting, even when surrounded by plants and other high-particle graphics.

      Looking through smoke ...


      • gave a slight hiccup, but nothing too staggering.

        Additional games which ran on the ‘high’ setting with fluent game play included games like: Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Call of Duty 6, Warhammer Online, World of Warcraft and Warhammer 40,000.

        Some of these titles, specifically Mass Effect 2 and Call of Duty 6, are actually quite new and ran excellently on a card which was, itself, released about three years ago.

        I love seeing a piece of technology

        which has strongly resisted becoming obsolete like so many others, and I think that represents an excellent buy for anyone considering it.

        The card does have a tendency to get hot, and with any laptop that can be an issue, but this has never been an issue for me in the slightest with only decent ventilation.

        For the many months I have had it, no problems have arisen from the card or its drivers, and that is why I would highly recommend it.
