I've been playing Quake 3 and Return to Castle Wolfenstein at full spec
- work perfectly. Far Cry also works well at "medium" settings and 1024
x 768 resolution. Quake 4 and Doom 3 are a step too far.

It's surprisingly powerful for an on-board graphics chip - set the frame
buffer size (in BIOS) to 64 Mb and you can have a lot of fun.

There are some benchmarks here.

http://www.notebookcheck.com/NVIDIA-...50.2201.0.html

The 9800pro in my current machine, gets about 14000 points in
3dmark2001se. The Nvidia 6100/6150 Go is rated by that web site
as 4000 points. Now, there should be a difference between the
two versions of chip, as the clock rate is slightly different.

It could be the 6150 Go, is less than a FX5200 Ultra.

That means you might have to go back a few years, to find
games that run well. Or turn down the detail level a bit.
