But don't expect to play games at Full HD without noticeable lag with either cards. coolermaster_72 November 27, 2012 10:20:59 AM GT 640 is better. what is the price you're paying for the alienware pc? you can customize a better PC by buying parts that will be really good than that overpriced allinware AX51.
