Default HP 8540w graphics card question

I have seen this model (which I am buying used) with several different cards listed:
NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M graphics with 1GB dedicated DDR3 video memory
NVIDIA Quadro FX 1800M graphics with 1GB dedicated GDDR5 video memory
Microsoft DirectX 10.1 (Shader Model 4.1) and OpenGL 2.1 capable
Microsoft DirectX 11 (Shader Model 4.1) and OpenGL 3.2 capable
ATI FirePro M5800 graphics with 1GB dedicated DDR3 video memory

Does anyone know which is preferable for PT 9? I assume nVidia, but I don't know which one. Also, sometimes they are listed as "gaming laptop" on eBay. Does the affect anything with PT?
