My custom built PC is dead and I decided to spend about 1k-1.5k for a gaming laptop.
I looked into Dell XPS 16, Asus G51vx, and HP. Because I can't decide what to get, I want to ask here

dell xps 16 - core duo T9600 6mb 2.8ghz
4gb DDR3 SDRAM
ATI Mobility RADEON™ HD 4670 – 1GB
FHD Widescreen 15.6 inch WLED LCD (1920x1080)
price as configured - $1307 without tax

Asus G51vx-x2a - core duo T9600 6mb 2.8ghz
4GB ram
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M -1GB
1920 x 1080
price as configured - $1499 without tax

I'm still wondering if 4GB will be enough to play games such as far cry 2, CoD4 MW2, etc
If I do get 6GB ram, how much performance will it increase?
Also, can anyone recommend me a good laptop other than those 2 above?

Thanks

Between those without a doubt for the ASUS model,GTX 260M destroys a HD 4670.
Another recommendation would be SAGER NP8662:

It has the same specs as ASUS G51.
I don't recommend getting 6GB RAM really since 4GB is more than enough for today's games/apps
