View Full Version : Urgent advice needed! G53SW-A1 vs G53SX-XA1

11-23-2011, 07:06 AM
Hi guys,

I recently ordered a G53SW-A1 on amazon and its about to ship. Looked around everywhere and it seemed the the 1.5GB 460M was better than the "gimped" 2GB 560M in other models that I looked at.

Did some more browsing and I found this - http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-G53SX-XA1-15-6-Inch-Gaming-Laptop/dp/B005F3440Y/ref=pd_sim_sbs_pc_1

I noticed that it has the 1.5GB 560M in it. Is this GPU still the gimped version and secondly is it worth the extra $79 to go for the G53SX-XA1 over the SW-A1?

I need urgent advice as my window to cancel the first order is going to close soon!!

Any help will be appreciated!

Just also noticed that in the top half of the description they say its the 2GB 560M but lower down they say its the 1.5GB version. I just don't want the one that is less powerful than the 460m..

It says the cpu is 2Hz, too.
