Honestly I would go with the Clevo (I love mine) and drop down to the 670m GPU since there isnt much that it cant play that the 675 can and put that $100 toward a bigger ssd or secondary storage. The best bang for mobile gpu is probably the 7970m. There isnt much it cant run at ultra at all. Sadly its about a $200 upgrade. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
