Asus G51JX or Battalion 101 CZ-11?

The Asus and Battalion are both pretty similar, but the Asus seems to have a worse CPU (2.26GHz) than the CZ-11 (2.53Ghz). Also, from reviews, it seems like the Asus needs a cooler of some sort. However, the Asus does have a much better graphics card, according to Notebookcheck.com and also has a bigger HDD at 500GB compared to 250GB. I don't really care for battery life that much since most of the time the laptop is plugged in.

My question is, is the CPU tradeoff worth the better graphics card? I'm going to be playing Crysis, Far Cry 2, Various valve games, and Oblivion.

    Hi there,

    Since you will be gaming, the graphics card is very important. Also, you should be fine with the 2.26GHz. That is still a very fast computer! As for the laptop getting hot, this will happen with most gaming laptops because they have such powerful processors.

    I hope this helps!

  3. I've managed to find something that I think is better than both of 'em for a good price:
