Hi!
I was wondering which computer would suit my needs as a student and a light gamer ( League of legends, Chivalry and games like this). I would mostly need my computer for homeworks.
Computer 1:
http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152586
NVIDIA GeForce GT 820M 2GB
Intel Core i5 4200M (2.50GHz)
8GB Memory 750GB HDD
15.6" 1366 x 768
Windows 8.1
DVD Super Multi
15.08" x 9.82" x 1.27-1.48" 5.29 lbs.

Computer 2
http://www.costco.ca/HP-Envy-Touchscreen-15-k073ca%2c-Bilingual-Notebook%2c-Intel%C2%AE-Core%C2%AE-i7-4710HQ%2c-15.6-in-HD-WLED.product.100121707.html
Brand: HP
Graphic Card: Intel HD Graphics
Hard Drive Size: 1 TB
Operating System: Windows 8.1
Optical Drive: SuperMulti DVD Burner
Processor: Intel Core i7
RAM Included: 8 GB
Screen Size: 39.62 cm (15.6 in.)


Thank you!
 
Save yourself $100 and go with the first one. More than adequate for light gaming and homework. Second one has no dedicated GPU, and you're pretty much just paying for the touch screen feature, which you wouldn't use in games anyway.

Is MSI a good brand though? I don't want it to break after 6 month.

Thank you so much for answering :)
