I am currently looking at 2 different systems for a laptop that will be used for gaming (I know desktops are better but I require the mobility of it aswell). The two differ in that:
the first one has an i7-4710MQ 2.5ghz unboosted and a Nvidia gtx 870M graphics
the second one has an i7-4810MQ 2.8Ghz unboosted but a Nvidia gtx 860M graphics
Therefore which is more important in gaming, the slightly better processor or the slightly better graphics card? Thanks in advance!

Both CPU and GPU are important for gaming but for those two Laptops the Cpu are so much good so you better take the better GPU so take the first one

870M graphics by a long way - the CPU is only important if your machine is bottle necked by it, unless you're SLI-ing 2 880Ms you won't be bottlenecked by the 4710 - therefore it doesn't really matter. plus the 870M is about 20-25% better in graphical power.
