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!
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.
