That's a bad price for what you are getting. These two are a major performance increase. The GTX 1050 Ti (laptop) will deliver 40% to 50% higher FPS at the same settings, has a larger SSD and faster CPU. It will play games at high to ultra settings which the GTX 960m will only play at low to medium. The GTX 1060 (laptop) delivers 50% to 65% higher FPS than the 960m or 20% to 30% higher FPS than the GTX 1050 Ti. Most games should play at Ultra with the GTX 1060 and High with the 1050 Ti.

You can expand any game benchmark for a comparison against other GPUs. Not all will have the 960m but the ones which do show a major performance gain on average.

- GTX 1050 Ti 4GB
- 256GB SSD
- 1TB HD
- 16GB RAM
- Intel Core i7-7700HQ 2.8Ghz (3.8Ghz Turbo)
- 15" 1920x1080

MSI GP62MVR Leopard Pro-218
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834154373
- GTX 1060 3GB
- 1TB HD
- 16GB RAM
- Core i7-6700HQ 2.6Ghz (3.5Ghz Turbo)
- 15" 1920x1080

Why did I list both if the GTX 1060 3GB is faster than the GTX 1050 Ti and costs less? It's due to the fact that most people use their computer for more than just gaming. For everyday use the 1050 Ti model will be much faster. The CPU is a little faster. It also has a 256GB SSD. Which will provide a huge boost in load times of OS and software.

There is no GTX 860. There is a GTX 860m. If your intention is to play Battlefield 1, Witcher 3, Ashes of Singularity and upcoming graphically demanding titles. Performance will be very bad if they play at all. You'll be looking at low settings and still have stuttering or choppy gameplay. If you are looking at playing simple games like League of Legends or Sherlock Holmes. It'll do fine.

For demanding games you will want at least a Core i7-6700HQ and GeForce GTX 970m. Preferably a Core i7-6820HK and GeForce GTX 1060 (laptop) 6GB.

If you can wait the 7th Generation Kaby Lake i7 laptops should be out soon and have a very serious clock boost. In which case an i7-7700HQ/7820HQ/7920HQ would be good choices. Along with a GeForce GTX 1060/1070/1080.

Unfortunately laptop gaming is expensive. The entry level for good performance has come down quite a bit from last year. From $1600 to about $1150. You can still get way more for your money if you build a gaming desktop and just get a cheap and simple laptop/tablet for your portable needs.

Actually, it came down even more. The new Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming was announced at CES and can be configured with a GTX 1050 Ti for $899: http://www.dell.com/en-us/shop/productdetails/inspiron-15-7567-laptop/fncwf514s

GTX 1050Ti offers performance on par with former GTX970M, so you're good to go with that one if you want to play recent games in FHD. 60 fps will not always be reached on high, but be somewhere between 30 and 60. At least more than enough to play fluently.
