hi guys did some research within my budget..using it to play dota 2 csgo and college ..need help choose btw these laptops

hp pavilion 14 i7-5500U(4mb cache 2.4-3.0GHz)-nvidia 840m-8gbram-500gb(5400rpm sata)-14" diagonal HD BrightView WLED-backlit (1366 x 768)

Dell Inspiron 3542 i7-4510U processor (4M Cache, up to 3.1 GHz)-nvidia 840m-8gbram-500gb(5400rpm sata)- 15.6" LED Backlit Display with True Life and HD resolution (1366 x 768)

lenovo e550 i7 5500U(2.4ghz 4M cache Turbo boost 3.0Ghz)-amd r7 m265-8gb-1tb hd-15.6" HD LED DISPLAY(1920x1080) display
prices are rougly the same..


can these laptop get 60fps on dota2/csgo high setting?am thinking of goin with dell..840m>r7m265..15.6>14inch but it has 4th gen..no sure how much is affects gaming

hp has the 5th gen but dun really liked the 14inch screen or it is fine gaming on 14inch since i have take it college more portable than dell but i dun really mind the little exxtra weight and heard hp laptop gives alot of problem and have major overheating issue is it true?

lenovo e550 has the 5th gen 1080 display but i dun really mind playin on 1266x768 but i guess its nicer to have 1080..r7m265 is slightly less powerfull than 840..how much less fps does it give?

another question i wana ask is does playin 3-4hrs cause heatin issue and fry the gpu. on these laptops...my fren played hardcore n fried his gpu within a yr..which 1 shld i get :(

Slower video card and higher resolution display is not a good combination.

More heat/use does shorten life of a system, keeping it on a flat surface (not a bed or pillow for example) and keeping it clean will help.

Of those, I'd probably pick the Dell, but that's because of the larger screen. They are all about equal but depending on what you want from the system, one has a larger screen, one has higher resolution, etc...

Don't know if they can play CSGO at the settings you want, you can look up some benchmarks for the game and video cards.
