It should perform ok. I suppose the closest equivalent desktop graphics card would be the Radoen HD 7750 which more powerful than the GT 750m by a decent margin. I would guess by about 20%. Perhaps the Radeon R7 250 would be a better match since it is less powerful than the Radeon HD 7750.

Benchmarks have should that the Radeon HD 7750 is adequate enough for 1080p in most cases. I haven't seen any benchmarks for the R7 250.

For games that are not graphically intensive, you should be able to play them on high settings, but for games that are moderately graphics intensive you would likely need to drop down to medium graphic settings to get good results.

The 4GB of VRAM is more or less a waste (at least for games) since the GT 750m is not really powerful enough to make use of it. 4GB is the recommended amount of RAM when you go above 2560x1600 resolution. But it might boost performance a bit in graphics related programs like Photoshop.

Thanks for the reply.

I guess I'm buying this laptop then, it is 700-800 euro's everywhere which I found to be kind of a good deal, but to be able to get it for 540 just seems too good to be true honestly.

With that price difference I think it is well worth it.

I was recently given a laptop with a Radeon HD 8850m and 1920x1080 resolution screen (Dell Latitude 3540 'cuz my uncle decided he wanted something better) which ranks between the GT 750m and GT 775m. However, the only I have played on it is Star Trek Online which is not a very demanding game at all.

Hey man, I also have a doubt about two laptops. Both are with i7-4700mq and 1336x768 max resolution, the difference is that one has a geforce gt740m 2gb ddr3 while the other has geforce gt750m 4gb ddr3. Now what do you think? Would the 4gb in the other be a waste?

For gaming purposes 4GB is a waste for 1366x768 resolution. However, the GT 750m is more powerful than the GT 740m so the laptop with the GT 750m should last you longer before you feel the need to upgrade. If the price difference is not very much then I would just go with the GT 750m laptop.

While I find that 1366x768 resolution is adequate enough for playing games, I find that resolution to be a bit too low to do other things. I have a Lenovo IdeaPad Y470 with a 1366x768 resolution screen which is the basis for my opinion.

I have been looking around for a 15.6" laptop with 1080p screen for a bit of time, but I stopped looking when my uncle decided to give me his 15.6" Dell Latitude 3450 with an i5-4200U, 1080p screen and Radeon HD 8850. I more or less fixed it for him, but he decided to eventually buy another laptop and so he gave me his Dell.

The Radeon HD 8850's performance is basically between the GT 750m and GT 755m. I find that it gives pretty good performance @ 1080p, but the only game I have been playing on it is Star Trek Online (STO). If the Radeon HD 8850 can handle 1080p pretty well, then the GT 750m should handle most games @ 1366x768 without much issue unless the game is extremely graphics intensive. STO is not the most graphically demanding game, but I have read it is one of best looking MMO games... people's opinion do vary though. Personally, as long as the game is fun to play, then I do not mind if the graphics are only considered "OK".
