Laptop Dilemma

Im looking to invest in a new Laptop and im torn between two options, both laptops have similar specs, but one has a GTX460m graphic card, and the other has an HD 6770m.

here are the full specs


ASUS G53SW-XA1 Republic of Gamers

Intel i7-2630QM (2.0 GHz Quad-Core with Turbo Boost up to 2.9GHz)
8GB DDR3 1333MHz, 4 SODIMM Sockets, up to 16GB
500GB HDD (7200RPM); Super-Multi Optical Drive
15.6-Inch FULL HD (1920x1080) LED Display; Nvidia GTX 460M Graphics with 1.5GB GDDR5 VRAM
Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium


HP Pavilion dv6

i7-2630QM Processor 2.00GHz with Turbo Boost Technology up to 2.90GHz
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium 64-bit
15.6" diagonal High-Definition HP BrightView LED Display (1366 x 768)
8GB DDR3
1TB (5400RPM) SATA with HP ProtectSmart Hard Drive Protection


so apart from the hard disk speed (space doesnt matter), the only reason i cant make a decision is the graphic cards, i tried to benchmark the two but i didnt know what to look for exactly.

ps: i run the laptop for long hours, so if both cards perform on the same level id prefer the one the produces less heat


thank you

  1. The 460 is faster but probably producing more heat. The 1920x1080 res. is also a lot better, really would go for that.
  2. Get the HP one... THe GTX460 is a better option.
