By naming the ATI card is about = in power usually just a tidge less to a desktop 4650 as far as the nvidia card you'll have to look up benchmarks

But imma take a guess and say the 4650 is more powerful in gaming

edit: got links i guess

4650 listed 33
9600m gs listed 70

it's probably a safe bet where even memory type wont really effect the comparison as they both can have ddr3 or 2 graphics dedicated ram on it.
