Although I have recently bought a Gateway NV5909H laptop. Which would have better gaming performance anyways? Gateway FX7026 Desktop Specs: -Intel Core 2 Quad Q9300 @ 2.5GHz -4GB DDR2 RAM -640GB HDD (320GB x2) -NVIDIA GeForce 8800GT 512MB -Windows Vista Home Premium x64 Gateway NV5909H Laptop Specs: -Intel Core i3-330M @2.13GHz -4GB DDR3 RAM -640GB HDD -ATI Radeon Mobility HD5650 1GB -Windows 7 Home Premium x64 Is it really worth spending the $700 on a new gaming machine even if i have the laptop?

You could build a better one yourself for $700. Personally thoughI prefer the experence of gaming on the pc. Laptops just dont cut it.
