Here's a list of Alucard's powers:

Immortality: Like other vampires, Alucard is immortal in that he does not age.
Regeneration: Alucard's ability to regenerate is greater than any other vampire's in Hellsing. His regenerative abilities appear to be without limit; upon being damaged to the extreme, his body simply reverts to the shadow matter that appears to be his basic structure and reforms. Also, he cannot die from being decapitated or staked through the heart as most vampires (or a combination of the two for that matter). But the only reason for him regenerating from really fatal wounds is because he has absorbed 1000's upon 1000's of humans/monsters. And they pretty much take the place when he gets wounded.
Superhuman senses: Being a vampire grants him considerably enhanced senses.
Incredible accuracy: Alucard can hit targets at great range using handguns while looking the other way.
Superhuman strength: Extent is unknown, but Alucard can physically rip humans apart with ease.
Superhuman speed: He can move faster than can be seen.
Intangibility: The ability to pass through solid objects.
The ability to defy gravity to an uncertain limit. He leaps impossible distances and can travel up vertical surfaces.
Manipulation of shadows into physical form.
Shapeshifting: Alucard can transform himself or parts of himself into bats, insects, snakes, hellhounds, other human forms including a little girl, and an amorphous mass of darkness. He has four known human forms each with different characteristics. He seems to be able to harden his body to such a degree that he can shred Alhambra's cards with ease (these cards could cut through depleted uranium cannon shells with impunity)
Telekinesis: In the manga, Alucard psychokinetically threw six police officers out of the windows and dropped them on flagpoles. Later he made a half-destroyed aircraft cruiser move towards Britain.
Summoning familiars, the souls of those whose blood he has sucked either sprout from his body or swarm about him as an army numbering in the thousands. These familiars can include animals such as horses and the weapons and abilities that the familiars possessed in life. This ability can only be used when his last seal is released. This storing of souls serves as a sort of backup against attacks that he normally cannot regenerate against (when Nail-Anderson nearly cut Alucard in half, it destroyed hundreds of Alucard's familiars but did him no lasting harm). According to the last chapter, Alucard possessed over three million souls after the Millennium attack, and has since killed them off in order to exist with Schrödinger's abilities.
The ability to absorb a person's soul through their blood and consequently gain their knowledge and memories. He can also absorb blood through his clothes and skin.
Apparent immunity or great resistance to the weaknesses most vampires possess. He is not compromised at all by sunlight or silver. It appears that the only weapons capable of harming him to any real extent are the most holy of Christian artifacts, such as Father Anderson after augmenting his abilities with Helena's Nail.

Here's Dante's:

Dante possesses power that surpasses that of most demons; he has enough physical strength to punch through stone with little difficulty, and often overpowers demons much larger than himself. Dante is extremely agile, able to jump to great heights, or even to balance on a flying rocket. Furthermore, he is able to channel his power into various physical objects, ranging from his guns to the air itself. He is also able to gain an immediate mastery of any weapon he picks up. This may be due to a demonic trait that allows him to do so, or possibly due to previous extensive weapons training.

Dante states that he cannot and will not kill any humans, but also explains that "humans are often worse than demons" in the Devil May Cry anime.

Dante can seemingly instantly heal from or endure any wound; even the Hell Prides were surprised when he virtually ignored their attack on him at the beginning of Devil May Cry 3. Because of this, Dante has been shown to survive wounds that would most definitely kill a normal human, such as being impaled through the chest with his own sword or shot point-blank in the head. However, this ability can eventually be worn down.

Thanks to his half-demon nature, Dante can release his demon self through his Devil Trigger. The appearance of this form varies throughout the games — in Devil May Cry and Devil May Cry 3, the form is influenced by which Devil Arm he carries, while in Devil May Cry 2[1] and Devil May Cry 4[2] he has a pair of Devil Forms believed to be his "true" Devil form. These forms usually increase his speed and give him slow regeneration, and sometimes grant him new abilities, like flying.

In Devil May Cry 4, it is implied that Dante's strength is not due to his father, but from his will to protect others. After Dante defeats Agnus, Dante tells him that the reason he's inferior is because Agnus surrendered his humanity. It is further suggested that any demon who possesses the will to protect/love others rather than to destroy and conquer will gain the full extent of their demonic power (though Dante, Vergil and Nero may simply be the exceptions to this because they have human souls, as well as demonic essences).

Now at least you have an idea of their strengths. And can make a decision if you want to.
