  1. The z510 for the sake of i7.
  2. Best answer
    Z50 for the sake of GPU
  3. thats the confusion i should go for better GPU or better CPU??
    plz suggest
  4. Z50 for the sake of GPU which is much more important in gaming.
  5. GPU dude GPU the I5 is just fine you won't really need an I7 but you need the better GPU
  6. thanks
  7. The GPU has 2 more GB. Not that i5 would do any too much worse than i7 anyways.

    so the i7 4core and i5 2core dnt matter ??
    in terms of gaming

    You won't notice the difference in gaming the lead role in gaming is the GPU which means = Better GPU Better gaming :) plus there isn't much difference between these two CPUs
  10. Does. But not that much, since i7's has 4 core base. And the i7 bottlenecks the GPU.

    Uh go with the I7 and the 740m there will be like a 1 to 5fps difference from the 840M but ya go with the better processor
    as this I5 is only 1.6Ghz which sucks and is dual core which also sucks

    but early u r saying that gpu is more important than cpu???
  13. i5 (2 core ) - 1.6 to 2.4 with 840m (1,029 MHz)
    i7 (4 core) - 2.2 to 3.2 with 740m (810 MHz)

    which is better for gaming ????

    Just go with the I7 i wouldn't recommend getting a 1.6Ghz CPU EVER even my 2007 build has a 2.4Ghz Cpu not a 1. something

    yes u r right
    so the i7 3.2ghz with 740m 2gb give me better performance than i5 2.4 ghz with 840m 4 gb??

    Yes

    there is one more question what difference 2gb and 4 gb gpu will make??

    will 840m gpu bottlenecks the i5 2.2ghz 2 cores???????

    Won't make much difference you could need a 4GB when playing games like Skyrim and games like that and 2GB for normal games like Batman Hitman and as these two cards cannot play on ultra you won't notice the difference of the 2 vs 4 GB
  20. Well, the big difference between Maxwell and Kepler is the power intake. You'll see better power saving w/ i5 and GT840M.

    is there any possibility that 840m 4gb gpu will bottleneck i5 2.2ghz 2 core cpu??
  22. no and its 1.6Ghz not 2.2Ghz
    if it was gunna bottleneck it then they wouldn't put them together in a laptop would they -_-
  23. The CPU bottlenecks the GPU because the GT x40 is weak. But 4 GB VRAM won't let the CPU down.
  24. On GPUs like this you're never going to use more than 2gb of Vram and the 4gb is just a stupid marketing gimmick because people assume that more is better. This is also why basically all prebuilt PCs come with 8gb or more of ram even if they have a $60 CPU and a system that would never even use more than 4gb of ram.
