The second one is much better for gaming... The first one has a GT 610m i would not even consider that a gaming GPU, hell i doubt it is even better than the integrated. What is your budget?

The GTX 660m LE comes with the one with the HD 4000... so the HD 4000 would not even be used... GTX 660m LE will outperform HD 4000 by a good amount, so out of those 2 the second is far better for gaming. Could you give us a budget so maybe we could find you something better?

If you plan on playing Diablo 3, you should know that Intel's HD graphics are NOT supported in the game. I tried running a Ivy Bridge CPU (3570k) and the graphics were seriously glitchy. Contacted customer support and they informed me that Intel's HD graphics weren't supported.

Yup i was looking at some benchmarks with HD 4000 and diablo 3... on lowest settings at 720p, it could only pull around 20 fps.

Well actually if I wait until feb 8 - 20th I get taxes and was planning on getting labtop and desktop I just need labtop to handle good on the go. I want the desktop for heavy gaming on high graphics and i could put down $2000-2500 for both so if you could help me somehow work that out that would be super awesome because I get confused looking at alot trying to build my own because the slight differances in numbers of cpus graphics cards etc and turth be told don't know much about it.
