  1. what games are you trying to run and on what settings? the 3rd or 4th one will give the best gaming performance however i know this is more expensive but if your looking for serious high end games such as bf4 or crysis 3 then you will need something like this http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Series-GT60-2OC-022US-15-6-Inch/dp/B00CU9GKZ8/ref=amtcd_B00DT70G9G_B00CU9GKZ8
