Option 1 is what i would ahve picked BUT its a DV series HP, those are horribly unreliable. Graphics cards die often on them.

If you have the cash and are willing to spend more get option 2 although it has a slightly slower GPU but a MUCH faster CPU.

Its basically the same card. The HD7670m is 600MHz while the HD7690m is a card with boost that runs between 600 to 750 MHz. You could actually OC the toshiba GPU to 750 without issues.
