Hi, im looking to buy a laptop mainly for gaming

What would be best for gaming out of these gpus and screen resolutions:

NVIDIA GT650M with High definition - 1600 x 900

or

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M with 1366 x 768 screen???

I understand the GTX is the greater of the two GPU's but will the screen resolution of the laptop with the GT 650M provide greater graphics and overall gaming experience?

Thanks.

Hi :) 

A link to both machines would help, as its NOT just a matter of gpu and screen... ?

All the best Brett :)

Hi :) 

Umm that's sort of Oranges vs Apples... different sizes etc....

For gaming (not very good gaming on either) I would choose the Lenovo...

All the best Brett :)

have you considered the y500. on lenovo's website, it starts at 699 pounds, assuming you're in the u.k. i5 and gt 650m, though, so if you want to game, y580's you're best bet.
