Any help greatly appreciated. I have a budget of $1000 max and want as good a laptop as I can. I would like a 17" screen and good GPU.....so other suggestions welcome :)
Thanks in advance.

Alienware has the better cpu 6c12t vs 4c8t

MSI has more ram but 16Gb is plenty for gaming, so if gaming is the primary goal I's call it a wash

MSI has the slightly faster GPU solution, but only in games with good SLI support in games with poor or no SLI support the 1070 is quite a bet better.

I'd get the(I'm going to hate myself for saying this) Alienware. The better CPU and lack of SLI(support for it seems to be dwindling) means it should holdup better with newer games.
