My old laptop just died (Huge problems with is screen, colours messing up (EVERYTHING GOING PINK), CMOS Battery died, slowing down, internet connectivity problems). Was becoming pretty outdated (Running a GTX 560m).

Currently in the market for a new laptop and I've been looking at mainly 3 MSI laptops.
MSI GX70 Destroyer 3CC-097AU

The only different between the second and third is the 3rd including a 128Gb SSD as well. However I not sure about the GPUs and CPUs. Which do you think is the better of the 3?

the first one has an A10-5750m which an i7-4700HQ will beat, hands down.
However the first laptop does sport a better GPU.
So, if the game is more CPU intensive you may get better fps from the 2nd and third one, but is the game is more GPU intensive the 2nd and third laptop will work better.

I personally recommend the i7 versions as they run cooler than the A10-5750 which runs rather hot.

Its generally up to you whether you want the 128 GB SSD for about $300 more, the benefits of having the SDD is faster boot up and shutdown times (about 13s and 5s respectively) and an increase in the overall responsiveness of Windows; not to mention any programs and games loaded on to the SSD will load up faster.

Hope this helps!
