So hopefully I have searched enough to justify the question..... :ange: 

My question is on the ability to play mid-range games and do my normal enginnering work (presentations, spreadsheets etc) on the following

XPS Studio 16
Intel i7-720QM
4 Gig Ram
Ati Radeon Mobility 5730 1 gig (have not seen this spec on other XPS 16 discussions and is why I am asking)

I know it is not the best but I think I have put together a decent computer. Will it have the same heating probs as the ATI Radeon Mobility 4670 (correct number?) I have read about?

Thank you in advance for your comments.

5730 is a little faster than a 5650.
And as for heating problems,unfortunately it still has this problem.(And its not only related to the VGA,its because of the cooling system and a quad core CPU)

Thanks Maziar. I have appreciated your string of comments. I was looking at the Studio 15 with the 5470 but decided on this for the slight increase in gaming capability. Hopefully it was a good choice....Any recommendations on external coolers?

Again, thanks for your expertise!!!
