Ok so i need some opinion about these 2 laptops.

The first is an Asus(770$)

ASUS K53SM-SX037/8GB (ALU BROWN, 2GB VGA) - Intel QuadCore i7 2670QM (2.2GHz/Turbo 3.0GHz, 6M) CPU, NVIDIA® GeForce® 630M 2GB VRAM VGA, 8192 MB DDR3-1333MHz RAM, 750 GB 5400 rpm HDD, Web Camera, Supermulti Double Layer ODD, Bluetooth 3.0, Battery 6cell 5200mAh, 56W, 5:20hrs battery life, 3xUSB (1xUSB3.0), Intel HM 65 chipset, HDMI 1.3, 0.3MPix Webcam, Multifinger Touchpad, IceCool, Aluminium chassis, Carry Case, 15.6" HD LED (1366x768), 16ms

Second one also Asus(790$)

15.6" HD Display, 1366x678p
Intel® QuadCore i7-2670QM
640 GB HDD
nVIDIA® GT555-2 GB
LAN, Wi-Fi b/g/n, BT 3.0, USB 3.0, HDMI
DVDRW, HD Webcam

So i was wondering,is the IceCool feature really worth over the better graphic of the second asus?I found out that the particular 630m in the first one is just a renamed 540m which is not satisfying.I compared them on geForce and on raw calculations this 555m is some 15%-20% better than the 630m on the first asus.About the ram im not really concerned,as most of today's games don't require more than 4gbs,and if needed there is a good chance that the ram is upgedable so its not much of a problem since ram is pretty cheap.Originally i was hoping to find some of these 2 Acer Aspire V3-571G-9435
Acer Aspire V3-771G-9875(preferably the 17 inch one with the 650M) as their price was my exact budget but as fate had it there were non ,in my country and if i order it online il have to pay a lot of taxes on the border it will cost more than i currently can give.So i decided to go for the 80% of the laptops in stock in shops here (thats i72670,2640,3610 combined with the shitty 610m or 630m)when 15 mins ago a friend of mine phoned me that they found one more in stock with a better graphic and that is the second laptop,but the icecool feature and 8gbs ram had me thinking about what should i do,i am not sure.Please i need a professional opinion if possible.Which one of these 2 will perform better for games???(Note i don't want my laptop burning down and becoming a hell machine while playing)

ignore all the marketing BS terms

if its for gaming you need the better video performance and nether are really flash for gaming, GT555 being quicker from what i remember.

laptops dont burn up unless they are poorly made/designed (HP MSI etc) -- ASUS is a good brand
