  1. Number 2, but both are pretty low end spec wise. I'd look for something with a GTX 755 or GTX 765. You buying a new laptop? If so whats your price range?

    Under $500, but I'm in Thailand so what I can get compared to the US is alittle different. You don't happen to know a site that would do free shipping worldwide?

    I have been looking for the best GPU I can afford. Those GPUs seem to be an 8750m or 740m. I was a bit worried with number 2 because it had the weaker CPU but costs about $50 more.
  3. One last thing, Is the preformence difference between the 2 machines worth the extra $50-$60 ? or would it be a marginal difference?

    1) $350
    2) $400

    Imo it is because The 8750M has some issues. The CPU is better with #1, but it shouldn't matter too much
