    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.

    As you can see above it even runs BF3 smoothly at low resolution.
