Hey guys,
I'm looking to buy a new gaming notebook so replace my PS3 and current notebook.
Ever since I've had my current notebook, which came with a low-end GPU (Radeon 7670m 2GB) I turned to PC gaming because of the cheap prices on Steam and my laptop's portability. Unfortunatley, my PC is have real trouble playing newer games (14 FPS outside in Crysis 3 on lowest settings :/ ) so I'm planning to get a new laptop and sell my PS3.
I'm having trouble deciding between these two:

An ASUS republic of gamers:
http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-G750JW-DB71-17-3-Inch-Laptop-Black/dp/B00COQIKB4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1374773184&sr=8-1&keywords=asus+republic+of+gamers+g750

Or

An MSI GT70:
http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Series-GT70-2OC-065US-17-3-Inch/dp/B00CU9GLUM/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

The difference is mainly the GPU, the ASUS has an Nvidia GTX 765m w/ 2GB GDDR5 whereas the MSI has a GTX 770m w/ 3GB of DDR3. The difference on those cards according to Futuremark's 3Dmark score, is ~4100 for the 765 and ~5100 for 770, about 1000 points, a quarter of the 765's score. On top of that, the ASUS is offering 4 more GB in system RAM. What do you guys think?

Thanks for the help :D

Thanks for the help man,
And my brother actually checked it for me and apparentley the 770 has GDDR5, amazon just decided to ignore that. So the clear choich for me would be the MSI.
Anyone else care to give me their advice, your more than welcome ;)
