The Dell Vostro by a long way.

A better graphics chip, and a quad core processor, rather than the other which is a dual core processor.

Asus for gaming, Vostro for everyday computing. The 330M in GPU Benchmark scores 486 while the GTX 260 669, but the Vostro has a better processor (2,185 vs 1,573).
PassMark Software - Video Card Benchmark Charts - Video Card Model List
PassMark - CPU Benchmarks - List of Benchmarked CPUs

The C2D in the Asus should keep up pretty good, heck my little low voltage one in my Asus does damn good for what it is and that Asus should overclock (from the factory). Honestly I'd have to say the Asus here, the Vostro will have better all around computing but the GPU in the Asus I think makes it pull away..
