If you're thinking about getting the MSI to use as a desktop replacement/barely mobile powerhouse, it's the better choice. That MB's 6770M is more or less a desktop 5770, and um.. you'll maybe be able to play modern titles at no more than medium-high with a lot of other settings turned off. And um, there's not much of a market for Mac games. Hope I helped.
The 6770M is not even close to a 5770. My 5770 stock clock is 875 Mhz, 800 SP's. 6770M - 480 SPs at 725mhz. 6870M is equivalent to an underclocked desktop 5770.
Ok so anyway the 570M is 87% faster on Crysis 2 than a 6770M. Tough choice OP
. That MSI is a good choice for a gaming laptop, check Xoticpc.com for other decent options maybe. Even an M17x with a 6990M or GTX 580M is ~$2000, with a 3D 1080p screen. Oh, and don't get me started on 580M vs. 6770M.
