I have two contenders at the moment but i need to know which one is the better buy. Contestant #1 The XoticPC: FORCE PBL21 (Built on Compal PBL21) System specs: (AS CONFIGURED) - 15.6” FHD 16:9 LED Backlit Wide screen (1920x1080) Super Clear Glare Type Screen - 2nd Generation Intel® Core™ i7-2670QM, 2.2-3.1GHz, (32nm, 6MB L3 cache) - nVidia GT 540M PCI-Express 2GB GDDR3 DX11 with Optimus™ Technology - 8GB DDR3 1600MHz CL11 Dual Channel Memory (2x4GB SODIMMS - 500GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache Buffer (Serial-ATA II 3GB/s) - Intel® Advanced-N 6205 - 802.11A/B/G/N Wireless LAN Module FINAL PRICE: $957.00 Contestant #2 The ExoticPC: Sager NP6165 (Built on Clevo W150ER) System Specs: (AS CONFIGURED) - 15.6” FHD 16:9 LED Backlit Wide screen (1920x1080) Super Clear Glare Type Screen - 3rd Generation Intel® Ivy Bridge Core™ i7-3610QM (2.3GHz - 3.3GHz, 6MB Intel® Smart Cache, 45W Max TDP) - nVidia GT 650M 1024MB PCI-Express GDDR5 DX11 with Optimus™ Technology - 8GB - DDR3 1600MHz Dual Channel Memory (2 SODIMMS) - 500gb 7200rpm (Serial-ATA II 300 - 16MB Cache) - Sager - Built-in 802.11 Wireless B/G/N - Stock Wireless Card + Bluetooth FINAL PRICE: $969.01 So these are the two that im looking at.... Which do i get? Contestant #1 has a 2GB video card (But its GDDR3) And a better wireless card built in. Contestant#2 has a 1GB video card (But its GDDR5) Contestant #1 has the SECOND Generation I7 Contestant #2 has the THIRD Generation I7 BOTH COMPUTERS WILL HAVE WINDOWS 7 64BIT My plans are to use the PC for college classes. With a little Diablo 3 or WoW on the side. (Guild wars 2 in the future) Will i get decent Frames for these games? If i have missed any information you may need please let me know! Thanks guys!
