In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 8600M GS are very slightly better than the Nvidia GeForce Go 7700.

The GeForce 8600M GS was released over a year more recently than the GeForce Go 7700, and so the GeForce 8600M GS is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce Go 7700.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The GeForce Go 7700 and the GeForce 8600M GS have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The GeForce 8600M GS has 6.4 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce Go 7700, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce 8600M GS is marginally better than the GeForce Go 7700.

The GeForce 8600M GS has 16 Shader Processing Units but the GeForce Go 7700 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 8600M GS requires 18 Watts to run but there is no entry for the GeForce Go 7700.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce Go 7700 is a middle-class level GPU and a tweaked GeForce Go 7600. It can use up to 512MB of dedicated video memory, and it's available with DDR/DDR2 or DDR3 memory types. The performance depends A LOT on the memory type it features. Games like F.E.A.R (from 2005) might run on the highest settings (DDR3) or might be only playable in the lowest settings (DDR).
All in all, the most powerful version is still not good enough to play any of today's current games.
GeForce 8600M GS is a middle class level GPU part of the 8000M Series released by NVIDIA, in 2007.
Very demanding games (e.g. Metro 2033, The Witcher 2) are most certainly unplayable and demanding games (e.g. Crysis 2, Skyrim V) might only be playable on the lowest settings. Moderate and less demanding games, like Call of Duty: Black Ops, should be playable smoothly at Medium settings.
