Yet another graphics card question: NVIDIA vs NVIDIA?
April 23, 2006 1:54 AM Subscribe
After configuring two laptops (Dell E1705 and Dell XPS M1710) to my needs, the only differences are the graphics cards and the price. The XPS houses the 512MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX whereas the E1705 comes in the 256MB NVIDA GeForce Go 7800 flavor. The price difference is that the XPS is $1,253 more expensive. What are the major differences between the two graphic cards? What about overall differences?

For my birthday (the 25th) present, my wife is allowing me to build a gaming laptop for myself. After some review-reading and comparison shopping I came upon two notebooks: Dell E1705 and the Dell XPS 1710. Everything else is essentially the same except for the price difference and the graphics card.
The setup for both of the notebooks are as follows:
-Intel Core Duo Processor T2500 (2MB Cache/2GHz/667MHz FSB)
-the XPS has 2GB DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHZ where the E1705 has 2 DIMM Memory 2GB Shared Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz (I'm not too sure if there is a difference here; an answer to that would be appreciated as well =D)
-80GB 7200rpm SATA Hard Drive
More specs can and will be posted upon request. I didn't think much else would be needed. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
