Hello,

I'm basically interested in buying a new laptop and i've narrowed it down to 2 of them in my price range.

However, i've come to a stale mate. I have to choose between these 2 configurations:

1. i5 8250, (4-core, 1.6-3.4Ghz, 6mb L3) Nvidia GF MX110, 2gb, 4gb DDR4 Memory
2. i3 7100u, (2-core, 2.4Ghz, 3mb L3) Nvidia GF MX150, 2gb, 4gb DDR4 Memory

I'm mostly gonna be using the laptop for gaming and basic other activities (no video editing, 3d modelling or stuff like that). The games i'd be interested in are: PUBG, CSGO, Dota 2

So, i'd like some advice...which is gonna be more effective for gaming? A better cpu (with a weaker graphic card) or a better gpu (with a weaker processor)?

Thanks in advance

With gaming titles these days, they are both demanding on the CPU and the GPU. Are these the only two options at hand? I'd go for the MX150 equipped laptop though if you intend to play games that are a little more CPU intensive(Battlefield) then you're going to wish you got more CPU horsepower.

I'm yet thinking that you've got an option to get a laptop that is balance in terms of both CPU and GPU. One more thing, you should get at least 8GB of ram on your laptop out of the box. I don't mean to add 4GB more rather have the laptop come with 8GB on it.
