Hardware/gaming laptop questions (HDD and memory).

  jimwheato 01:18 27 Jun 2012

Hello all!

So, I'm currently customising the specs on a gaming laptop which my girlfriend is kindly buying me for Christmas last year (Yep, just a bit late). I'm not going to mention the website, but it's a highly recommended one from other forums and review sites. I've got pretty much all the specs I want, but there's a couple of things I'm unsure of. I'd really appreciate some advice/answers from you, the people in the know.

  1. 8GB 1333MHz RAM or 4GB 1600MHz RAM, which is better (Going with Windows 7 64 bit, if that swings it either way)?

  2. 500GB Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid or 750GB WD Scorpio Black, which would you go for when they're both the same price in the build?

  3. Would the slower HDD and 4GB 1600MHz RAM options effect gaming performance?

  4. Final question, glossy or matte monitor?

Thanks a lot for any advice given.
