I need to choose between Toshiba Qosmio X505 or MSI GT660

Hiya

Well I need to decide between the Qosmio or the MSI for a good gaming computer but I'm really indecisive so I thought I would come here and ask for opinions. The specs are as follows

Toshiba: Intel Core i5-460M Processor 2.53 GHz (2.80 GHz with Turbo Boost Technology),
3MB L3 Cache Configured with 4GB DDR3 1066MHz
500GB hard drive
Harman Kardon stereo speakers
18.4" diagonal widescreen TruBrite TFT display at 1680 x 945 native resolution (HD) with 720p content
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M with 1.5GB GDDR5 discrete graphics memory
Battery Life: 3 hours, 47 minutes

MSI: Core i7-740QM 1.73GHz 1333MHz 6MB Processor
Nvidia GTX285M 1GB DDR5
6GB DDR3 RAM,
500GB Hard Drive,
Dynaudio Premium Sound
16 Inch 1366x768 LCD Panel, HD Webcam
battery life: 3 hours

So if anyone cares to give an opinion i'm all ears.
