I'm getting a new laptop soon and i have two which i am looking at buying. First of all it needs to be a laptop so i cant substitute for a Desktop and i am going to be using it a lot for gaming.

The first is from cyberpowerpc (FANGBOOK EVO HX7-200): SIZE - 17" CPU- INTEL Core i7-4910MQ 2.90 RAM - 16GB (8GBx2) DDR3-1600 SODIMM MEMORY 1- 1TB Seagate Momentus XT Sata6Gbs 64MB Cache Hybrid Hard Drive w/ 8GB SSD Caching MEMORY 2 - 120 GB Corsair Force Neutron GTX SATA III GPU - NVIDIA GTX 870M 6GB PCIe Video SOUND CARD - Supreme HD Audio w/ THX True Studio Pro Technology cost is £1617

The second is from origin pc (EON15-S): SIZE - 15" CPU- INTEL Core i7-4910MQ 2.90 RAM - 32GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHz (4 X 8GB) MEMORY 1- 1TB Seagate Solid State Hybrid Drive mSATA Drive - 120GB ORIGIN PC Approved
GPU - NVIDIA GTX 870M 6GB SOUND CARD - High-Definition Audio powered by Sound Blaster XFi cost is £1532

Both optical drives are the same lastly the camera for the fang book is 720p while the origin laptop only specifies it as 2MP, of which i am unsure which is better? Feel free to point out changes i should make in the systems.

17 inch all the way, concentrate on screen quality as well though. you do not need i7 for gaming, and 8 gb ram is more than enough. personally I would go for a laptop with a good SSD and the best GPU you can afford. Ignore all of the above if you intend to render large images in photoshop etc, but I get the impression you will ONLY game on the laptop.
