ok thx well it was that or go with the intel gt 3000 in a inspiron 15r 5110 this one had a non integrated video card and i got a great deal 175 off the listed price so did i do better or...??? and this one has a much faster cpu with the turbo boost to 3.1 and the 7200 rpm hd

i had 5% off and got 120 off the price it was originaly 799+ tax and such i got it for under 730 total if you want i can give u a full run down it also came with 1 year total protection for breakage or other damage. here is a link to the inspiron i almost got
and here is the XPS i did get
P.S the insprion was 706 total
P.P.s i put 630 for the price at first it is 730

yes that looks like a good video card but 3 things i read a good part of the post you made on about what would work best i also have a 4 gig stick that runs at the same 1333 mhtz so i will have 8 gigs of ram
1) u said that with multiple players in-game u might want a faster cpu the one i have has turbo boost up to 3.1 the one u showed did not
2) u also mentioned that a 17 in screen might not be the best choice.
3) the HD on the one i got is not running at 5400 rpm's it is running at 7200 another thing you mentioned was better!
thank you for the info on this i was so dismayed when i was not able to run it on this lap-top! a few other things about the one i ordered is it comes with a 1 year total replacement for any reason if it gets stolen or dropped off a cliff i get a new one and total tech support for 90 days. and last we have credit with dell so we kind of had to go with it! also did u look at the 2 links?? do you you think i went the right way in not getting the intel hd 3000 and instead going with the gt525?

It's the same i5 CPU. It has a turbo core feature.
True, 17" might not, but the GPU power makes up for it.
Yeah, 5400 RPM.
But for the price, the hardware is pretty beefy -- especially the graphics card. It outperforms GT 630M / GT 540M -- graphics cards usually found in laptops $200~$300 higher than the PC I linked.
But yes, you made a good choice to pick up GT 525, rather than the one with Intel integrated.
