I'm in the market for a gaming machine but the more I do research the more I get lost with all the choices available.

To make this easier I will separate my wants and needs into two lists below:

Needs:

144 Hz IPS G-sync FHD panel
8th generation i7 processor
GTX1080 or GTX1080 max-q
RGB keyboard
Thunderbolt connection

Wants:

17 inch preferably over 15.6 inch
USB 3.1 ports
2.5 inch bay for files storage
Slim form factor

That's basically it I really like the Zephyrus with the 8th gen processor but it lacks the extra storage I kind of need or much prefer and the smaller screen is a let down.

The AORUS X7 DT V8-CL4D seems to be the best choice but it is not availabe to buy as of yet.

Is the 17 inch much better than the 15.6 for gaming?

I actually think the xephyrus would have a better key board layout for gaming as it mimics desktop keyboard but I'm not sure about that.

Can anyone recommend one or the other? I am tempted to go for the Zephyrus since it's ready to be ordered but I need some help with this one

17 inch is not much better than 15.6. If it is a small price difference, then sure. Otherwise no.

Zephryus is a good choice. What is your budget? Is Amazon alright?
