Wanting a laptop for ~500£ that will be able to play recent games on med-high settings if possible, stuck between these two:

Samsung 355V5C:

AMD A10 4600m Quad Core processor (2.3GHz)
8GB RAM
AMD Radeon 7670m GPU

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3:

Intel Core i3-2377M Dual Core Processor (1.4GHz)
10GB Ram
GeForce 640m 1GB GPU


Wondering what is the better laptop of the two for gaming?

Thanks :)

640M is notably faster than 7670M in games

Even with the slower processor is the 640m still gonna be better for games?

Bit over budget, I should've really said upto £500; would the Acer laptop be able to run games like Counter-Strike: Global Offensive or COD: Black Ops 2?

It'll play them. How well it'll play them i cant comment on as ive never used anything with that sort of spec before.

Also customised this:

Intel Pentium Dual Core B980 2MB (2.4gHZ)
8GB Ram
Geforce GT 650m 2GB DDR3


It's an awesome card, but was wondering if that CPU is gonna seriously hinder things? Better option than the ACER?

Managed to customise this within budget:

http://pcspecialist.co.uk/notebooks/enigmaIV/

Intel Dual Core B980 2MB (2.40gHZ)
8GB Ram
GeForce GT 650M 2GB DDR3

Really good card, but was wondering if the CPU would seriously hinder any gaming and if it's a better option than the acer?
