I am planning on buying a new laptop. Please read the further information.

My requirements - - - >
Screen size: 15.6" or 17"
Processor: i7-6700HQ
Storage: 1TB HD with a preferable SSD drive min. 128GB
Price: Under $1300
Graphics Card: Min. 3GB


I shall be using laptop for: 30% gaming in medium to high settings(GTA 5, CS Source, Battlefield, etc.), 20% Android app development, 30% running 2 to 3 VMs simultaneously and 20% video and sound editing and all other basic stuff like browsing and watching movies at 1080p.

I have short listed 2 laptops. One being Asus rog gl752vw dh74 with GTX 960M 4GB graphic card(https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B015ZG9964/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1478182826&sr=8-1&pi=SX200_QL40&keywords=asus+rog+gl752vw+dh74&dpPl=1&dpID=41TRuOp12iL&ref=plSrch) and the other being Asus rog Strix with GTX 970M 3GB graphic card(https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01FFRD220/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1478182055&sr=8-4&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=asus+strix+laptop&dpPl=1&dpID=41QPVtpT0wL&ref=plSrch).
When it comes to overall performance, is the 970M better than 960M?

And also can you suggest me other good laptops that supports my requirements and stays within the price limit.
Thank you.

I've got an MSI GE62 something something, which has a 5th gen i7 and 970m. It came with a 128 m.2 SSD and a 1TB hard drive, which is nice. Bought it used on amazon and saved a few hundred pounds. (UK)
