Just got done building my new desktop, and now its time to move on to upgradeing my notebook, but not sure what way I wanna go.

P4 3.2 w/ ATI Radeon 9600 128MB video
or
AMD 64 3400+ w/ NVIDIA GeForce 4 440 Go 64MB video

I'm a hardcore gamer so im on the fence with AMD but im not sure if I wanna take the hit in the graphic card area. So question is, which would u prefer and if theres anyone who makes a AMD 128MB combo? Thanx for ur time.

I personally would go for the P4 3.2 w/ ATI Radeon 9600 128MB video

But if your looking for the amd/128 I was able to find a couple systems both support up to AMD 64 3400+ (systems are configurable) cost is not cheap so hope money is not an issue:

this one uses ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 Graphics 128MB Video price with AMD 64 3400+: $3000 and up

this one uses ATI Mobility Radeon 9600 Pro Turbo Graphics 128MB Video price with AMD 64 3400+: $2200 and up
http://www.hypersonic-pc.com/AX6/index.asp

hope this helps you decide

i would go with the p4 3.2 and ati 9600. it would kill the other one in games due to the better video card.
