My cousin is offering me a brand new Gateway FX7026 desktop computer package with a 22" 1600 x 900 monitor for $700 CAD. 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?

Laptop is better. PC is very expensive for what it is. You could build a better one yourself for $700.

Personally thoughI prefer the experence of gaming on the pc. Laptops just dont cut it.

Hello,

If you have the $700 to Spend go for it...
Otherwise the Laptop should be good enough unless you Must have Bells & Whistles :D

If you want a gaming computer get a PC over a laptop.

You'll have heat issues and very limited CPU power with a laptop. Not to mention OC headroom / upgradeability.

If you look around on newegg you can find much nicer pre-builts for $700.
