    I am looking at a couple notebook configurations from Dell. The first notebook (which is located under their "gaming notebook" section) i customized has the 256MB ATI MOBILITY RADEON X1400 HyperMemory card in it. It is the Inspiron E1705 notebook.

    The second notebook (which isn't listed under the "gaming notebook" section) I customized is pretty much the same as the first one except the video card is a 256MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400 TurboCache card, and that is the highest quality card they offer. This is the XPS M1210 Notebook.

    How do these two cards differ? I haven't been keeping up with my video cards lately, so I am unsure of how they perform in the gaming world. I am not looking for an ultimate gaming experience from these laptops by the way. I just need something that can run any game smoothly at decent graphic quality.

    Dell lists both these cards in their Mid-Range Gaming section thing, but according to Dell, the ATI card is better than the Nvidia.

    I think the XPS notebook came out to a little less than 200 dollars cheaper. Would that notebook with the GeForce Go 7400 TurboCache card perform adequately with my games, or should i spring for the Inspiron E1705?
