What laptop would be a better buy for Starcraft?

Both laptops i'm looking at are Dell Studio XPS16. They have same everything (graphics= ATI mobility Radeon 5730). The diffence is for the basically the same price I can get an i7 720qm with blu-ray and 4gb ram or the i5 540m with 6gb. I know the graphics card isn't the best, but which set-up would give me the most bang for my buck?

I use my laptop for WoW and soon Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3. I usually play shooters on my consoles.

    SC2 only uses 2 cores so the higher clock speed of the i5 540M will give you significantly better performance than the 1.6GHz i7 720QM
  2. Sweet, thx! I've been researching all day but there were lots of opinions. I think i'll look at the i5.
