intel® hd graphics 4000 v/s NVIDIA® GeForce® GT730M 2GB DDR3 VRAM

both the drivers are in Dell inspiron 14R touch

the one with intel is i3 and the one with the Nvidia is i5

rest all config are same

the cost difference between the two is around 7000 INR or say 120-130 US$

I need the laptop for everyday use
surfing, music, movie, some office work on MS Office and some games like AOE, GTA, Max Payne etc...

kindly suggest which is more value for money and i should prefer.

I would obviously prefer the one cheaper but would it hamper too much in quality and speed

please advise

Stick with the Intel 4000 graphics. I've built one office PC and two home theater PCs using the Ivy Bridge i3 3225 and it is absolutely fine for the applications you want to use. A separate GPU is only necessary if you are going to play video intensive games or doing photo/video editing. Save your money.

I have the SAME issue but I do graphic illustrating and video editing. I have the Intell 4000 installed but my screen looks more blue. In spite of all the tewaking and calibrating I have done, I dont like how it looks.

I have the Dell 17R & Im considering returning it if I cant change the GPU. It is the 13th, I have until the 19th to decide. What do you suggest?

Any advice is appreciated.

Intel HD 4000 is a integrated GPU not a dedicated one so it is likely part of your CPU or your motherboard, if it is part of the CPU you can change it by getting a CPU with a better integrated GPU otherwise you cannot replace your integrated graphics, you could add a dedicated graphics card if your looking for improved graphical performance but it is unlikely that your laptop model has space internally for one as it did not come with one originally.

EDIT: I looked up dell 17R though google and am lead to believe that it can accommodate a dedicated GPU, so you do have that option available to you.
