Question about Alienware M15x Graphics Cards

The three choices that you have for graphics cards for the Alienware M15x are:

1) 512MB NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 240M (standard)
2) 1GB ATI Radeon™ Mobility HD 5850 (add $150 usd)
3) 1GB NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 260M (add $200 usd)

here are the specs i have chosen:

CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-620M 2.66GHz (3.33Ghz Turbo Mode, 4M cache)
OS: Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, 64bit
Graphics: 512MB NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 240M
RAM: 4GB Dual Channel DDR3 at 1066MHz
HDD: 320GB SATAII 7,200RPM

I will be using this laptop for gaming(i realize it is not a major gaming config) and doing everyday billpay/ budget needs, etc....so is it worth the $150 or $200 to get extra graphics or not?

Thanks.

    If you want to play Battlefield: Bad Company 2 or CoD: MW2 - maybe. The 5850 looks to be about as good as the GTX 260.
