Advice on Ati Mobility 4670 and Ati Mobility 5730 and i5 vs i7

Hi, I am thinking of buying a new Laptop, the dell studio xps 16. This is going to be mainly for school but i also want to be able to play games on it like WoW, starcraft 2 but also maybe higher graphic demanding games such as The witcher dragon orgins etc. It has 2 options for gpu's the ati mobility 4670 and 5730 and 2 options for a processor the i5 430M and i7 720QM.

The 4670 build would have core i5 430m, 4gb ddr3 at 1333mhz and a 1920x1080 full hd screen
the 5730 build has core i7 720QM, 6gb ddr3 at 1333mhz and a 1920x1080 full hd screen

So what my question is whether or not there would be a significant difference between the builds, if the added processor and gpu upgrade will change my gaming experience that much.

  1. Hello and welcome to the forums :)
    5730M is about 10-15% faster than a 4670M,and as for CPU,some games/apps benefit from the extra cores.
    If the price difference is something like $100-$300,then IMO its worth it.
