Default Ati 9700 vs Nvidia FX Go5700

Which is the better GPU for notebook gaming? Both about the same price. Cannot find decent comparisons. Looking to build a notebook with one of them through Alienware.

Default ATI Radeon 9700 vs Nvidia Geforce FX Go 5700

I am trying to decide on which GPU to put into my gaming notebook. Both have 128mb DDR. Have not seen too many comparisons between the two. They are both similar in price. Anyone have a suggestion? The notebook would pretty much have the same configuration:

Processor: Intel® Pentium® 4 Processor w/ HT Technology 3.4GHz 800MHz FSB w/ 512KB Cache
Motherboard: SiS648FX + SiS963L AGP8X Chipset
Memory: 1024MB DDR PC-3200 - 2x512 SO-DIMMs
Video Card: ???
Video Optimizer: AlienAdrenaline: Video Performance Optimizer
Sound Card: Sound-Blaster Pro Compatible 3D Audio
Hard Drive: Hitachi 60GB 7200 RPM ATA100 with 8MB Cache

Sorry, just thought I could get a different crowd or more people/opinions at the gaming location.
