So I am looking to buy a laptop that can handle decent gaming. The best deals I found are:


15.6' HP ENVY dv6z-7200:
A8 4500M + 1gb HD 7670M for $620 OR the A10 4600M instead for +$50
RAM 6GB 1600MHz DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
640GB 5400RPM Hard Drive
OR

15.6' HP Pavilion g6t-2200:

3rd generation Intel Core i3-3110M Processor + AMD HD 7670M (Assuming it is 1gb also) for $540
RAM 4GB 1 DIM (does it matter that its 1 DIMM and doesnt say 1600 MHz?)
320GB 5400RPM Hard Drive (lower space doesnt matter)

(MY MAIN CONCERN IS PERFORMANCE 1.gpu 2.cpu & Ram) I mean the second option is about $100 cheaper for same graphic card but different cpu. BUT isnt i3 better than A8? what is the best value to performance ratio between the 3 in your opinion ?

the pavilion doesnt look as slick and doesnt have a blacklit keyboard option.*


[ADD: maybe Ill add this one too just because i cant make a decision here there is also
15.6 Hp pavilion M6 with: FOR $458 !
A10 4600M
Radeon HD 7660G discrete-class graphics and up to 3060MB memory
6GB DDR3 SDRAM
640GB SATA hard drive

I'd go with the better CPU. The i3-3110 is faster then the a8-4500m, and that option is $80 less. Also, I'm not an Envy fan. I own one Envy laptop and it is collecting dust, needs to be repaired. (screen issue)

If you are willing so spend an extra $100 more then the A8 option:

Thanks for your reply, I think ill go with the A10 4600M W/ 7660G it has a bit lower graphic but for $450 it seems like a steal, it also comes with 6gb and more space and backlit keyboard + Numeric keyboard which are ALL a plus to me.
