I just bought this card to replace an older radeon 4500 series gpu.  Here are the benchmarks (this is a quad-core amd with 16GB memory, sata drives):

My desktop computer is a couple of years old.  It serves me well for what I do.  I just got a new laptop.  In terms of hardware, the laptop is much different.  The desktop is a quad-core AMD 900 series with an ATI 4500 series gpu running backtrack 5r3.  It has 8GB of memory and standard SATA drives.  The laptop is an Intel i7 cpu, with SSD drive, NVIDIA 660M gpu, and 8GB memory running backbox 3.  The internal SATA drive is slow as fuck (just putting that out there).  I have the OS on the SSD drive and my home folder on the SATA drive.
