So I am confused between two laptops. One is Dell G3 15 3579
which has 8th gen Intel i5 8300h and gtx 1050, while other is helios 300 with 7th gen i5 7300 HQ and 1050 Ti card. The difference in their cost is about 80 dollars(dell being costlier). And I have no idea what matches with what. I want laptop for gaming plus my game designing /programming which is required in college.Or should I go for a laptop either from G3 series or helios with better processor?But that will put me seriously out of my budget. My college is about to start so if u can help me out of this dilemma. And Thank you.

The i5-8300H is more powerful than the i5-7300HQ. The max i5-8300H has higher clockspeed (4GHz vs 3.5GHz), and it also has Hyper Threading (HT) which basically makes it similar to a 7th generation Core i7 CPU. Having said that, most games are dependent on the GPU rather than the CPU and a 500MHz difference will not be noticeable. With regards to HT, the vast majority of games are not designed to take advantage of it. The only modern games I know of that can actually get some type of performance boost from HT are Overwatch and whatever the current Rainbow Six game is.

The GTX 1050 Ti is roughly 25% more powerful than the GTX 1050; but it varies depending on the specific game. See link below for benchmark comparisons.

Instead of buying the Helios 300, you may simply want to consider buying the Dell G3 with the GTX 1050 Ti instead of the GTX 1050. The difference is only $50; $800 vs $750.

You may want to consider the Dell G5 with the GTX 1050 Ti for $900. I read that it has better cooling than the G3. The GTX 1050 Ti will run hotter than the GTX 1050 so paying extra for better cooling is not a bad idea since excess heat can damage electronics over time more quickly.

In India G5s aren't available. And G3 with gtx 1050 ti cost around 165 dollars more. I just read a review of G3 on a site saying it has dull display in spite of having ips. And here I thought I found a perfect laptop for me. Thank u for ur answer. Well, I don't know how to reply to ur answer so I just replied to my question. I would go for G3 with ti but after reading that review I guess not. And I downvoted ur answer by mistake. I am really sorry.
