Recommendation? Laptop for Gaming / General use - $1,000 +/- - Page 2

It doesn't look like a huge difference on paper at first, but the 670m is Fermi and a rebrand of the 570m while the 670MX is Kepler and overclocks significantly better. You can basically get the 670MX into stock 680m territory in terms of performance.

I use a Line 6 POD X3 for recording guitar/bass tracks via USB. I also use a Megadrum Midi controller to record drum tracks. Both of these tasks can be accomplished via my desktop, so it wouldn't be a deal breaker if I couldn't use either of these units. That said, I have a Satellite L305D that I use on occasion with the POD X3, and it works quite well, so I wouldn't imagine it would be an overly huge issue on a newer laptop. But I will definitely keep it in mind and do some research prior to purchasing.

My primary goal is gaming. All else is just a bonus.

So it would appear the extra $84 would be well spent in sticking with the original suggestion.

Thank you for that!

I found an Asus G75VW RH71 for about $100 less than the one imglidinhere recommended. Has the same 3630QM cpu, A GTX670M GPU, and 12gb of DDR3 1600mhz memory.

Is that a viable option as well, or is it a step down from the one that was recommended?

The 670M is a good deal slower than the 670MX. It's only a smidge faster than my 6970M and overclocks rather poorly. Stick with the G75VX instead.

Lol I noticed that too. Normally I have to sift through some really bad posts before I get to the advice. Seems great.
