In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce 9800M GT SLI are massively better than the Intel HD i5 U430.

The HD i5 U430 was released over a year more recently than the 9800M GT, and so the HD i5 U430 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the 9800M GT.

The 9800M GT has 1024 MB video memory, but the HD i5 U430 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The 9800M GT has 192 Shader Processing Units but the HD i5 U430 does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The GeForce 9800M GT SLI requires 130 Watts to run and the HD i5 U430 requires 18 Watts. The 9800M GT requires 112 Watts more than the HD i5 U430 to run. The difference is significant enough that the 9800M GT may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the HD i5 U430.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewGeForce 9800M GT SLI is a solution of two GeForce 9800M GT put together using NVIDIA'S SLI technology.
Check the page of GeForce 9800M GT to know more about its chip.
As usual, SLI relies a lot on proper driver support and may suffer from micro-stuttering in lower frame rates (below 30). Benchmarks indicate the performance is overall, up to X% better than a single GeForce 9800M GT performing by itself but at times (depending whether or not the 3D game supports SLI or in the graphics driver) it performed worse than a single GeForce 9800M GT.
A few demanding games will run at the highest settings with fluent frame rates (30+) but overall most games will require reduced settings to be played optimally.
Intel HD i5 U430 is the graphics card which is built into the Intel core i5 U430 mobile processor. this card can handle most of the latest games like, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Battlefield 3, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in the lowest settings on a pretty good frame rate. Overall a great card. A perfect fit for a non-hardcore gamer.
