670mx vs 680m...is it worth it for me?

I cannot seem to decide if I really need the 680m or just go with the 670mx. I am able to get a 670mx laptop for $1300 and it has the 3630qm CPU. The 680m laptop would cost me $1800 and it also has the 3630qm.

The games I play are not too demanding: SWTOR, Company of Heroes, LoL, DiRT series, GTA IV, Batman and some others. Most of the higher demanding games like Crysis I play on my Xbox.

Would I just be better off getting the 670mx laptop and saving my money...or even using some extra money to upgrade the CPU to a 3740qm? It'd cost $1500 with that CPU.

I am also looking for a laptop that runs as cool as I can get while playing my games at or nearly at max and also uses less power. Hell...or should I just wait for the Haswell and next gen GPU laptops?

I also want to have this laptop last as long as possible...with that in mind the 680m would seem like the better choice because of the future proof being better than the 670mx.

www.notebookcheck.net i love this site for checking on the nitty gritty details of notebook hardware am looking for something decently priced/performance as well- the way i see it get the best gpu u can afford as most likely you will have the laptop a long time there is a hairline difference between these two gpus obviously the 670mx is a really good gpu

http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-670MX.8... 670mx 960 cores
http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-680M.72... 680m 1344 cores

since they are both based on same chipset the performance difference is probably small that is why i like this site it will show you if its re-branded or not.

I would save the money and go with the 670mx personally.. the 680m is overpriced
