Gaming Laptop Choices

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Choice 1: $1522.00

Display: 17.3" Full HD (1920x1080) MATTE LED backlit LCD
Video Card - GPU: nVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M 256bit w/2.0GB GDDR5
Backlit Steelseries Keyboard: Yes (Blue)
Processor: Intel Core i7-3610QM (2.3~3.3GHz) w/6M L3 Cache - 4 Cores - 8 Threads
System Memory: 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3/1600 Dual Channel Memory
Hard Drive: 500GB SATA II 3GB/s 7,200 RPM Hard Drive
Caching SSD: Kingston 90GB SATA III Caching SSD - 64GB Usable

Choice 2: $1997.00

Display: 17.3" Full HD (1920x1080) MATTE LED backlit LCD
Video Card - GPU: nVIDIA GeForce GTX 680M 256bit w/4.0GB GDDR5
Backlit Steelseries Keyboard: Yes (Blue)
Processor: Intel Core i7-3610QM (2.3~3.3GHz) w/6M L3 Cache - 4 Cores - 8 Threads
System Memory: 16GB (4x4GB) Kingston HyperX DDR3/1600 Dual Channel Memory - CL9
Hard Drive: 500GB SATA II 3GB/s 7,200 RPM Hard Drive
Caching SSD: Kingston 90GB SATA III Caching SSD - 64GB Usable

The 680M has a 42% increase in performance from the 675M based on information from 'notebookcheck.net' and since the Choice 2 pushed me over the $2,000 mark I got a $75 discount and figured I would upgrade the RAM to 16GB from the 8GB in the first choice.
