Hi which of these two laptops would be the best for gaming? Both seem very similar but the acer has a better graphics card and the dell has a better processor?

Hello and welcome to the forums :) 
For gaming,VGA is more important,so my vote goes for the Acer one.
5650M is far ahead of 5470M in games

Thanks i could never tell was the trade of in processing power worth it. How would an Nvidia gt330m compare. This ones slightly more expensive but it has a better processor again?

The xp mode in windows 7 professional would be handy too as i have some pretty old games i like playing as well.

Okay thanks do you think it would be worth paying an extra £100 or so for a studio 17 with a 5650m and a core i5 430 instead of the acer if i wanted to convert video files occasionaly? Or are the processors too similar to make a noticable difference?

I think that's worthy for £100,because you get a faster CPU + a better display
