Hello all,

I'm new here but wanted to get your expert opinions.

I have am looking to buy a new laptop, that can be used for gaming and that I can also run multiple virtual machines on, for its other purpose.

I have narrowed it down to the 2 machines below, as they fit my budget.

I'm wondering, what is the better option considering the gpu and processors of either of these 2 choices:

-Option 1, ASUS ROG G751JT-DB73 has a i7-4720hq paired with gtx 970m 3gb
http://store.asus.com/us/item/201506AM270000028/A17602

Or:

- Option 2:ASUS ROG GL752VW-DH74 with i7-6700 paired with gtx 960m 4gb
http://store.asus.com/us/item/201510AM170008067/A17602

(Both have 16gb Ram, with 2 additional open slots for upgrades. Ssd boot drives (256 for gl751/128 gl752) and additional tb hdd drives. Both are about the same price.)

Pls let me know your thoughts of which is better processor and gpu combo here? Which one should I get?

..and any other suggestions I should look at about 1250-1300$? (Any brand, preferably 17.., open to 15..)

All opinions welcomed!

Thanks!

P.S. playing fps type games, possibly some mmo rpg, sports. (Probably spend more time still playing on Xbox one or ps4 though, so not my everyday gaming machine)

Yea I've settled on the 751jy also. Had a bunch of different choices... I never thought picking out a pc would be SO hard! Let us hope I don't get a lemon... :( I'm NO expert but it seems the chances of getting a lemon are high with the 751jy...

My pc would be for straight gaming and web browsing. GTA V and doom 3 bfg right off the bat. I should be set with medium-high settings? Sorry don't mean to jack your thread BTW.

Thank for all the replys. They help a lot as I'm still figuring it out. I was originally looking at the 751- jt, but will look at the 751- jy now as well. My main concern, was should I go latest in with lesser gpu, or 4th Gen i-7 and better gpu, ddr4 vs ddr3, etc... I think I'm most likely going with jt, because it fit's my budget, but going to look hard at the 751jy before I buy. I'm gonna throw another 16gb in my machine too asap.

Any other opinions, please chime in!

Toronto, sorry for the noob question, but why is Optimus a bad thing for gaming laptop? And is there any workarounds to disable it in registry or bios, in three 751jt, if it's not a good thing? Thanks in advance for the knowledge...

U cannot disable Optimus In Bios , there is no Option any where to disable Optimus. its better to use the Nvidia Card For all applications.
In Optimus u have Choice , Nivida Card Or Intel processor graphic for applications . U do not want to ever use Processor graphics, Optimus Is an Awefull idea in my opinion. G751 has no optimus , Get a G751-JY Great Machine

I see. Does the g751-jt have optimus? I looked and it didn't say if it did or not.. asking about the g751jt, because not sure if I can afford the jy..
