Integration.  Running GDB from with in emacs does the following:

  - shows source files being debugged in emacs buffers
      this allows you to use all your favorite emacs commands
      to move around, search, etc

  - adds gbb specific commands buffers being debugged, such as
      set breakpoint at mark

  - cut/paste between buffers and the gdb command line, emacs-style
      command line edting in gdb, etc.

I don't see any reason *not* to run it in emacs.  You lose nothing.
Gain a few things...
