^Right. I dIsagree, but alas it is a moot point as the deal has expired. The second laptop you suggested has some kind of hardware problem (reviews). While the first laptop is decent and it does have a better gpu, the actual performance gained is going to hardly be noticeable when you are gaming. Basically you won't be able to run games on ultra high with either computers and if you want to spend an extra 100 for virtually no reason (other than gaining a few fps on a setting you can already play on) then go ahead.
When you are going to pay 1100 for a laptop you might as well go a little higher or wayyyy lower.
I don't know what you're talking about... Asus G-series laptops are legendary for affordable laptop gaming. Problems used to exist on G73Jh, but by the SW model they killed them. You ARE gonna notice significant difference compared to GT540M, and yes, you can even max many games out.
