    when on nvidia graphics, its SO hot that even the aluminum in between the keyboard keys gets nearly untouchable!
    it runs cool when on intel graphics tho.
    i know it releases more heat on nvidia but the difference is HUGE!
    is that normal?

    Do you have iStat installed? There you can check the temperatures. Chances are that it will be fine.

    Yep, seems like it's normal for the keyboard frame to get very hot when the computer is under heavy load. If you're planning on doing any gaming you should look into getting an external keyboard.
