Hello, I am trying to buy a gift for my sister on Christmas and I need it ordered in the next 2 hours otherwise I'm going with the 400$ hp here. She does light gaming like dragon nest or league of legends and isn't a graphic enthusiast. Basically it just needs to run League of legends on medium settings over 30 fps, hopefully 40 minimum. Which one of these is better for gaming? Please answer quickly for the sale on them is ending soon! I don't need too much detail either, much appreciated :) and good luck to all of you Christmas shoppers!

note if you add another 2gb


this should work fine

as you can set in the bios max 1gb to 2gb of ram plus this will allow it to run in duel channel

No, that is not true.

The Intel HD 4600 is ranked just a bit higher than the integrated Radeon HD 7660g which is the best performing integrated graphics core in AMD's previous generation Trinity APU. The Radeon HD 7660g is more powerful than the Radoen HD 8550g in the current generation Richland APU which means the Intel HD 4600 is also more powerful than it. The only two AMD graphic cores more powerful than the Intel HD 4600 are the Radeon HD 8610g and the Radeon HD 8650g which are not the AMD A8-5550m APU that is inside the AMD version of HP's 17.3" laptop.

Below is a link that provides ranking order and performance of the Intel HD 4600 and various AMD integrated graphic cores plus two nVidia graphic chips as a comparison. AMD's Richland generation integrated graphic cores have not been benchmarked yet, so there ranking position is simply based on specs alone for now. However, the Trinity generation Radeon HD 7760g has been benchmarked since it has been out for some time.
