so i'm thinking of buying a new laptop
ASUS ROG GL552JX - XO139D
it comes with i7 4720hq
nvidia gtx 950m 4gb
15'6" HD display @ 1366x768
ram 4gb (will immediately upgrade to 8gb)
is the extra 2gb on the gpu worth it for gaming purposes? and is the resolution too low for it to be uncomfortable for use?
this laptop sit just on the border of my budget (+ the ram upgrade), should i just get this?
thanks in advance!

If in fact it does only have a 768 monitor, that's fine as you can run games at medium-high+ at that resolution with the 950m as you'd be running them at low settings at 1080p. The 4GB of VRAM will help if you want to multitask with a second monitor, but won't really provide much of a boost in gaming over the 2GB counterpart, maybe 1 or 2 FPS at most likely.

Though you might not be able to spot the difference between the hd and full hd..But it is still recommended if you want to use it for gaming and watchng movie.
