Im gonna get a HP Pavilion dv6z-7000 for gaming, because thats my budget.. Should I get it with option 1 or 2?

Option 1:
- AMD Dual-Core A6-4400M (3.0GHz/2.6GHz, 1MB L2 Cache)
- 1GB AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7670M Graphics

Option 2:
- AMD Quad-Core A8-4500M (3.0GHz/2.1GHz, 4MB L2 Cache)
- AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7600 Series Discrete-Class Graphics

thanks in advance (;

theres no way you could swing the extra 50 for both upgrades? I would say... If the primary use is gaming option 1 if not then option 2.

Option 1's gpu probably is better and that is what games focus on. Option 2 focus on the rest of the computers ability. The CPU upgrade would allow better performance while multitasking, and it is a quad core and has a significantly larger cache.

But do you think theirs a significant difference between AMD Radeon HD 7600 and 1GB AMD Radeon(TM) HD 7670M Graphics?
The laptop has 6GB 1600MHz DDR3 System Memory...

Most people would shy away from an undisclosed gpu. It also says discrete class which means its probably the integrated card. Which is ok for very light gaming ie some steam games. I looked on hp's website. Its a cheap laptop but gaming, cheap, and laptop do not go together well. I would recommend both if you are serious about gaming and on a very tight budget. what kind of games are you wanting to play?
