    EDIT: SO after looking at this website and wiki pretty much 8800 is the winner with 8600 being ok for gaming. wee i guess i'm keeping the HP

    NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE Integrated Graphics GPU / ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
    vs
    NVIDIA GeForce 8600GT - hp

    So my dad just bought an HP elite 9000 series at Costco and its sitting in the garage. My dad wants to look at the Dell 531 next week so i'm not opening the box just yet.

    Aside from work and internet browsing i want to play computer games on this new comp.
    So i went to the Hp/Dell websites and found that:

    The dell has a GeForce 6150 Le or.... ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
    while Hp has the NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT.

    Which one is better to run games on?
    Should i consider other factors.. such as chip speed? ram... etc?

    Thanks,
    Serbob

    on wikipedia

    ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT is WAY better it seems... but i'm not sure.

    Tripl6:

    The NVidia Geforce 6100/6150 integrated graphics should have no problem with Vista or the Aero interface, it is a decent Directx 9.0c GPU and can use 128 or 256MB of memory. Now for gaming its not very good and a PCI-Express Geforce 7xxx or 8xxx series card will be better
