or


Sager NP8662

Wondering which one would be better for gaming,Im hoping these will run Call of Duty and Fallout 3 . My budget is 1500-1600 so i can't upgrade much of the initial NP8662

The Sager is the better choice for gaming. The GTX260M is a better card than the HD4670 and will run both COD and Fallout 3 (The Sager in my sig can run COD 4). The Sager is also cheaper to boot and the difference between the CPU's isn't so large that you will notice.

last question on the Sager, if i had $ to upgrade, is it worth putting money into the procesor/system storage space, or will the base NP8662 work?

I think I would put the money into the CPU for longevity sake. HDD's are easy to find and upgrade even if it's just an external unit. CPUs aren't as easy to find. Intel is also releasing new processors which will make yours even harder to find.
