You'll find a notebook graphics card comparison website at this link:

http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html

The 520M would be a better card than the 310M but try and get one better than either of those. The first Nvidia number is the series while the second and third number represents the quality of the card within that series, in each instance, higher is better but the second number is the most important. A GTX will also be better than a GT. GDDR5 memory is faster than GDDR3 as it opens two memory pages same time leading to faster rendering.

If you look at the Nvidia website product page here http://www.nvidia.com/object/geforce_family.html you'll see a list of notebook graphics cards. Starting at the right, the 315M is the lower entry card while the GTX580M would be in an expensive gaming notebook.

Edit: Don't forget a decent processor too!

@Val..LOL...sometimes I wish I had a Mac, especially at times when my Windows desktop manager including Aero decides to disappear never to be seen again just because I changed Windows view to Classic and back again a few weeks ago! Looks like a windows reinstall soon.
