Im wondering if its worth it to get the i7 2760qm (@2.4 Ghz) versus the $164 cheaper i7 2670 (@2.2 Ghz)? I primarily will be gaming.

no i would say keep the cpu you have,

In the future when you dont get what you want from your cpu then ill say upgrade to a better cpu

The main difference between these two laptop processors is the i7 2760qm runs at a max of 3.5ghz under turbo, and the 2670 runs at 3.1ghz under turbo, so 400mhz difference. Also, the 2760qm natively supports DDR-1600mhz where the 2670 only supports DDR3-1333mhz. The differences are pretty small though, and you would not likely notice.

thats right so just upgrade when you really need to, Otherwise you are just wasting money on not a very big difference
