Do you think the Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD would run CS 1.6 in 640 or 800 resolution with 100fps? I usually run at low settings as far as AA/AF. Also would something like the 9200 or higher beat that card? What about a Radeon HD2400?

Here is a comparison of relative graphics power:

The 4500 is on par with a 9200M. The 2400 is a tad higher.

All will run the game.. but the CPU will come into paly a lot for that resolution. 100fps might be stretching it a tad, but that realyl depends on the rest of the system.

Frankly, all the GPU's you list are crap compared to modern options.

Yeah, I'm on a budget for a laptop for college. I don't plan on playing too seriously or too much so hopefully it wont matter. My desktop has a dual core 2ghz cpu, 2gb memory, and an 8800GT (i got it when it was like 400$ glad to see its like 50$ now :p). My laptop will most def. have 3-4gb of ram and a dual core 2ghz+. I may end up going with the 4500 since the 9200 isnt slightly better. Would you say it is worth getting the hd 2400 or a 512mb nvidia 9500M GS? Would those 2 make a big difference?
