    Needing advice: 460M or 540M

    Home 777 Level 1

      Hi all,

       

      Thanks to help I received on this forum, I have narrowed down my laptop search and am now between two. Both have the same Sandy Bridge 2630-QM processor, but I need some advice from the experts...

       

      One laptop offers an nVidia GTX 460M with 1.5 GB. Max RAM capacity is 16 GB.

      The 2nd option is an nVidia GT 540M with 2 GB, but max RAM capacity is only 8 GB.

       

      Assuming identical processors, which is more important for Premiere CS5 speed at this point....video card or total potential RAM?

       

      What's the best way to predict if these cards are both compatible with the CUDA/MPE unlock?

       

      Thanks in advance!
