Hello and welcome to the forums :) 
None of them will allow you to max out games,because GT 330M is a mid-range card(can handle games fine on medium settings)and 5470M is a low-end card.But overall GT 330M is significantly faster

well thank you maybe you could help me a little bit more, the game im planning to play is the sims 3, other games which need i think more things i play them on my ps3. but i dont want it mainly because of the game, i like photography and i spend a lot of time editing and designing things. of course i want to have a great sims gameplay. my options are:

Macbook Pro 13"
2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
memory- 4GB 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM - 2x2GB
harddrive- 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 5400 rpm
NVIDIA GeForce 320M
(i wanted to get the 15" but is way more expensive)

Dell Studio 15"
Intel® Core™ i5-520M 2.40GHz (2.93Ghz Turbo Mode, 3M cache)
6GB doble shared channel DDR3 a 1333MHz
500GB SATA (7200RPM)
ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 5470, 1GB

i dont know if you could tell which one would work better...

I would go with the Studio one because of having a faster CPU and HDD and more RAM

+1 for the Dell Studio. Also, the 320M in the Mac Pro is slower than the GT 330 in a regular laptop since the 320M shares system memory not to mention the 320M has lower clock speeds. The 320M is a bit faster than the 5470M, but I would go with the Dell Studio for the rest of its superior specs.

The 5470 will provide similar gaming performance to the 320M (ie crappy), so if you're main concern is gaming you may want to look at a gaming laptop with a little more GPU.

Hello,

I wish to play Fallout New Vegas on my 2010 MacBook Pro 15" on Windows 7.

My MBP comes with this:

Intel i7-620M processor with a turbo to 3.2 GHZ, 2 cores 4 threads, Nvidia GT330M with 512MB video memory and 4GB DDR3 RAM.

Can my MBP support Fallout New Vegas? The system requirements list the GPU requirement as the Geforce 6 series and above. I assume that these requirements refer to the desktop models whose clock speeds hit a max of 540 MHZ while my dinky GT330M hits a speed of 575 MHZ.

Any comments? I'm fine with playing Fallout New Vegas on low details.....been playing Fallout since good ole Fallout 1
