Hello Guys, I am planning to get a new budget Gaming laptop however, i'm torn in between the Dell Inspiron 15 7559-3041G ( Intel i5-6300HQ GTX 960M and the ASUS ROG GL552V-XDM044T. The games i'll be mainly playing are GTA V, CS:GO, DOTA 2, Overwatch, and it would be nice if i could also run some newer games at low- medium settings. I should also be able to run editing programs such as Vegas Pro, Photoshop, etc. Im also open to other laptop suggestions. Thanks for the help guys!

I would go with the i5-6300HQ and GTX 960m. Most games are more dependent on the GPU than the CPU. And there is a pretty decent performance difference between the GTX 950m and GTX 960m.

If you were to play a strategy game like something in the Civilization series or X-Com 2, then you will probably get slightly better performance with the i7 and GTX 950m because those games are heavily dependent on the CPU to calculate the AI's strategy.
