    Picture one shows these card as a crossfire combination, why would want to take one away, believe performance won't be as good, unless get a much better video adapter then the HD 8650 ?

    The performance of the Dual Graphics solution depends greatly on the driver support for the used games. In some games the performance may even degrade slightly compared to using only the dedicated graphics card.

    Let me get this right, you want to go from either Dual graphics card crossfire setup with HD 8659G +HD 8600M to Geforce 6600 or
    HD 8600 to Geforce 6600 ? Which is correct, bit confused. Best try to fill in system specs here or provide make and model, believing it is a Laptop.

    If a laptop like jds63 suggests then forget any kind of upgrade. Please provide specs, very hard to help when blind about the machine.

    Know you know more about Laptops too, Popeye, as seems like one from what i researched. thanks !!
    Plus bit confused on what exactly we are wanting to do and achieve here with a switch of video adapter.
    Possibly game performance.

    Yea , it is a laptop , the Asus R510D and my specs are:
    AMD A10 2,5ghz
    AMD radeon hd8670m 2gb
    I just see that the 8600m is better than that crossfire so I decided to ask you guys,

    Can not find much specs on either as seems come in combination in a crossfire setup, but if this is correct model shows HD 8670M installed, believe might be better then 8600M. Think a crossfire setup has it's advantages as it utilizes 2 cards instead of one, similar to SLI with NVIDIA. Going to think of changing cards for performance reasons might as well go for higher end card then either of those, just my opinion, since... Question is again why are you thinking of changing anything ?

    Well , the performance in-game sucks...really bad...The OS helps me since its 8.1 pro and it moves fast on browsing and stuff, but this laptop can not even run a game old like Call of duty 4 on high settings...Its either the driver or I don't know...thats why I am asking you guys..I tried a clean re install of the catalyst...was better..it didnt warm up like in the past but ,still, the performance its the same. BAD

    I do not think other card mentioned going to make it perform better, not just video card that is involved in performance in a game.
    Processor, HDD, RAM Performance. Make sure your maintaining the system, other system and hardware driver updates, defrag or trim drive, clean temp, history and cache regularly. Low hard disk space, if so remove unwanted programs, startup and running items can make even games lag too.

    When install a new video driver make sure first to remove older one, even if replacing, also make sure it is the newest version.

    Yeah could be a bit under on video adapter, but rest of specs it should be fine Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare system requirements | Can I Run Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
