    Which graphics card should i get for my 15inch PB?
    I cant decide which graphics card to put in my PB, so i want to see how each one does on WoW, the only game i play. If there isnt a dramtic difference, i wont buy the 128 card.

    Its not upgradable after purchase. So if you know you're going to play games get the better VidCard when you buy the laptop. Its only $100 difference.

    I have the 128, but mainly because I do alot of video editing and I wanted the best graphics card.

    I opte for the 64MB and maxed out the RAM to 2GB. I got the RAM from newegg.com for $110 per 1GB stick. I have a friend with the se 1.67 Powerbook and he has the 128 card in his. I cant tell the diffrence to tell you the truth. Keep in mind most games for OS X are made to work on the lower end ibbok, emacs and imacs as well. All have less video RAM then 128MB.

    That and I like getting mine from the Apple store and didnt want to wait 10 days for it.

    i would defiantly go with the 128. its $90 more (edu) but worth it in the long run.

    Boy I wish laptops were as upgradable as their desktop counterparts. If only there could an industry standard connection/module for video cards, sound cards, etc....that would be sweet. I would plug in a Geforce 6800 Ultra 512 video card...but the laptop would probably ask me to shut down or plug in for power 1 minute after I started my system. That would be funny.

    To answer your question though...I recommend the 128 Vram...
