    Default Laptop for Virtual Djing

    Hey guys,
    I was wondering how much the video cards effects performance for djing. Because I'm gettng a new laptop soon and is wondering if paying a bit for a more powerful video card will help any?
    Thanks

    The money would be better spent on a SSD.

    OK, good deal. Would a dedicated video card be better than an integrated?

    As long as your video card can handle scrolling waveforms (read: isn't ancient and shit) it'll handle DJ software fine. Traktor, SSL etc aren't video intensive at all. Don't worry about integrated or independent.

    Oh, this is a very good point. I was quick to assume he was just going to be running Traktor/Ableton/Serato
