So I'm looking into getting 1 of these 3 laptops. Now obviously for the best performance and graphics the i7 1060 is the better choice but I don't know if it's necessary for the extra cash.

I'm just looking for which one could run games such as pubg, LoL, gta 5, fallout 4, ww2 and I know it's not out yet but far cry 5 at around medium with some low/verylow mixed in (preferably ultra distance on pubg) at around 50-60fps stable. I already play on the Xbox one s so anything is better then locked 30 fps with all low settings as some sources have said.

Like I said I don't doubt the i7 1060 could give that performance but if I could get one of the cheaper i5s and get about the same performance I'd love to save some cash.

Also side note the i5s I would eventually upgrade to 16gb ram and throw a 1tb hdd or something in them if that matters.

i7-7700HQ with gtx 1060 6gb: www.bestbuy.com/site/dell-inspiron-15-6-laptop-intel-core-i7-16gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1060-1tb-hdd-256gb-ssd-matte-black/6162034.p?skuId=6162034

i5-7300hq with gtx 1060 6gb: www.bestbuy.com/site/dell-inspiron-15-6-laptop-intel-core-i5-8gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1060-256gb-ssd-matte-black/6162037.p?skuId=6162037

i5-7300hq with gtx 1050 ti 4gb: www.bestbuy.com/site/dell-inspiron-15-6-laptop-intel-core-i5-8gb-memory-nvidia-geforce-gtx-1050-ti-256gb-solid-state-drive-black/5872507.p?skuId=5872507

Sorry but one last side question would the gtx 1060 be bottlenecked by the i5-7300hq cpu?

Thanks guys for all your input and suggestions.

In all honesty and retrospect you're going to save the money by buying the highest end laptop your wallet can afford. I'd side with the i7+GTX1060 however is your budget capped at 1200USD? Perhaps the community can offer a better solution?

Well honestly I'd be putting this on payments. So I'm not sure of a real budget. I was trying to find the best budget laptop that could play at about the settings and fps that I want. And these seem to have good performance on the pubg benchmarks I've watched even the i5 1050 ti

Im still wondering if the i5 will bottleneck the 1060? If not that may be the one i go for just my budget and preference. It won't be used for hours nor do I expect to use it for *hardcore gaming later in the future. As I intend to build a desktop when I move and have more room but for now this is my only option so I'm not trying to spend alot into it.
